From Small Town, to Uptown!

It is Automotive Industry Week in the city! Last year, my car was an 'attention getter' at AAPEX, the 'Automotive Aftermarket Parts Exhibit'. That is where repair shops find replacement parts. like windshield wipers, air conditioners, etc. Not exciting, but necessary.

The Isetta sat prettily in the Clean Tools booth and we received what is surely a lifetime supply of their products. Most of the family (except the babies) got some form of car cleaning supplies for Christmas, and we still have a lifetime supply!

Several months ago, the agency that handled the arrangement said that they would not need the car. They had decided to bring one of their own. A couple of weeks ago, though, they emailed to ask if it would be available again, and apologised for the last minute request.

The Mister in his usual photo mode -not smiling!

This year, the Isetta is at SEMA! The Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association exhibit! SEMA is the Big Show!

It is where you find all the 'stuff' that they use to make custom cars, fast cars and showy cars.

It is where you find the big stars, the race car drivers and the legends! And this week, my Isetta!

Five days ago, my cutie car was in a small town parade. This week, she is under the bright lights!

I am so proud of her shiny cuteness!

(Dearest Sister shared a video here, last week. I think it was the most fun that I have ever had in the Isetta!)

I can't wait to see what we get for Christmas this year!

Also, Mister may not be smiling, but I don't see that he is wearing crocs!

The Isetta is a star -- and The Mister may not be smiling, but he looks pretty proud of his cute little car. I love the paint job -- it's definitely a head-turner.

I'd be proud of her shiny cuteness, too! I thought that was the coolest car I'd ever seen in your parade post and now she's even cooler. :)

It is so-o-o-o much cooler than Urkel's car!

I forgot to mention how much I like your banner.

I liked the video of you two driving around. You looked like you were having way too much fun. Is it hard to drive? There seemed to be some turning issues? :)

Does she have a nickname? Issy maybe?
