      Just wanted to say thanks for organizing this event. Were you the one on the mic all day? My wife and I had a blast and will definitely make it back next year. Also had a great time at the C.ock & Bull after the show, although we didn't meet up with the VW people (we were there early and left a little early). Next year I'll try to take a nap or something... haha.

      The only suggestion I had was (and I'm not sure how you'd pull this off) would be to have more organized parking by car make/model/generation. I'm a little on the fence about that idea though, as it was pretty cool to see everyone just parking around and setting up little camps. I'm definitely bringing a lawn chair and a cooler next year.

      Thanks again.

      I had a blast. The only suggestion I have is the Club Wars drag racing going last after the other events and best of class judging is over.. Since a couple of show cars were going to be in the drag racing, they could have missed out on some votes... I thought it was a great show. The club wars is unique, fun and entertaining. And its always nice to have drag racing going on in the background. Check out k3 euro on Facebook and Flickr for show coverage

      Agreed that the Club Wars is a really fun thing. It gets everyone together in a group as well, so that everyone can meet everyone else. My wife and I chatted with some of the Embry Riddle people while watching the tire rotation thing. Good times.

      I think everything is great, been going to FIXX for many years now. Only suggestion I have is maybe have food there, perhaps some food trucks. Had some kids come to our tent asking if we had left over burgers.

      It was my first year going. Coincidentally enough, a lot of people who attended previous previous Fixxfest's kinda knocked the show - "it's not all that," etc etc. when I mentioned I was going this year.

      The general concensus I've gotten is that most people really enjoyed themselves this year. Was this year's show a big step up from previous ones?

      More vendors would definitely be a plus.

      The show itself seemed relatively organized, or as organized as it could be. Club Wars was a blast.

      It's not always trying to become the biggest or most popular show/event out there in my opinion. If you just focus on the quality of the show itself and trying to improve on that aspect of it, the numbers of attendees will inevitably increase over time.

      Dub Cartel will be back next year.

      Justin, the show was great this year. The ONLY thing that I can think of that would make it better is if you walked around topless all day....with really short jeans shorts....

      Make the porta-potties spread out, not just 4-6 out of 20+ available, because someone couldn't organize them and left them against each other and non-usable.

      Have more vendors, forge motorsports was the only one who appealed to "me."

      A FL gtg that brings much more people, vendors/sponsors like Waterfest and H2Oi would be nice.

      I did not notice any refreshements anywhere, if there were, maybe have several spread out around the park?

      At waterfest, I got a bunch of free stuff upon entrance as well.

      Been going for many years now. Always a great event I've notice more BMWs and Audis - hopefully the show gets bigger and attracts more tuning shops for the BMWs & Audis.

      I think the club wars drag racing should be down the 1/4 mile track.

      More little competitions for people not just clubs but fixxfest has always been my favorite
