Happy New Year. Yes I know whatís so happy about it, there is no snow on the ground and our toys are all put away until spring. Like they say if you are given lemons make a Margarita. New Years is such a magical time with chilly temperatures and crisp clean air itís like everybody is getting a fresh start in life. A time of the year where you can reflect on years gone by and let me tell you for me thatís a lot of reflection. This is also a time to look forward to what can be. Mend a friendship set a new goal or take that one chance you always wanted but were hesitant to make the leap.  One of lifeís largest regrets is the leap that never was, donít run to the end wishing you did something you never tried who knows you might just find out you should have taken the leap years ago.
     Wisconsin winters do however offer something that Florida winters do not and that is time to work on your ride when itís not begging to go out and play.  Many of you like to personalize your car and youíre able to do that between summer cruises.  Others like to do minor repairs or upgrades typically extending the down time to a few weeks. Then there is the broken knuckle gang. These are the ones who want to dive into everything from an engine rebuild to new paint and beyond. This is the group that might look forward to winter because nothing stops a car project like a warm sunny day, begging for you to drop the top and point the car to parts unknown. 
     Others by now may just want to take off to place where it is warm and sunny. I hear Scottsdale this time of year is nice and I even heard there may be a rather large gathering of automobiles waiting to be auctioned off at the end of January. Yep itís true you could fly to Phoenix rent a convertible enjoy the sun and sample a part of one of the many auctions held between the 23rd and the 31st of January.  Barrette-Jackson the largest of them all has something for everyone from simple entry level collector cars to multimillion dollar dream machines. If you are looking for wall art or gas pumps they will have you covered. One other thing they offer is the greatest opportunities to people watch you could ever ask for entailing everything from top builders, TV stars, racecar drivers and enthusiast from around the globe.  Bringing your +1 might make cut back on the auction stuff and actually having you spending time taking in the sights, hot air ballooning, hiking or rock climbing come to mind. When it comes to vacation there truly is something for everyone in Arizona. So if winter has you down maybe a temporary latitude adjustment will be that boost in the arm you need to brighten your day. If you need me I will be found hiding in my garage until spring.

Sitting in the right seat I hope you all enjoy the ride.
