Barry and Company,

My wife and I along with members of the "Over the Hill Gang- San Diego North County had the pleasure of attending your Saturday, October 4th Detailing Clinic hosted by Mike Phillips. First and foremost, THANK YOU! What a wealth of knowledge and information we all obtained concerning the care and upkeep of our prized vehicles (and our everyday ones too) I have been a long time user of your products and am always pleased to receive something in my Meguiar's goodie bag at each car show I attend, the most recent, "Cruisin for a Cure" As one of the participants and "Survivors" thank you for your sponsorship.

Thank you for the chance to attend one of these classes. I enjoyed myself and learned quite a bit, even though I have been working with Meguiars products for a while. I'm definitely going to have to get some of that M80 now. :)

Here's some pictures from Over The Hill Gang at Meguiar's Garage!


This Ford Falcon sporting Fender Skirts was the first car to arrive, although the owner was not a member of the Over The Hill Club he and his pride and joy fit right in. :confused:

At every Saturday Class we give away a 64 ounce jug of NXT Car Wash as a prize as our "Long Distance Award" for the person or couple that drives in from the furthest distance. Then that person has to hold up the NXT Car Wash and display it like Vanna White would do on the Price is Right each time we reference car washes.


Here's Johnnie presenting NXT Car Wash! :xyxthumbs
