the car show is up in the air depending on space and other factors.

I like the cars in the carshow, but I don't really go to ACEN though to see them. If they did get rid of it though, we could use more areas to just sit down and chill for a minute, maybe that's what the space could be used for. I also like the idea of expanding the Artist Alley, I love checking out the art there but it's too congested at times. I don't see as much of a problem with lines anymore, I don't think we need to expand registration any further. I order ahead of time though, the line doesn't matter to me.

I enjoyed the car show in previous years. Although I think if they were to do it again, maybe somehow tie it into anime more would be good.

For example, if the car has appeared in anime, have a TV looping clips of the anime with the car shown.

I enjoyed seeing the cars every time I walked by, but only for about 30 seconds, because I was in ahurry to shop & did not want to miss cosplay or run some one over. That's just it, the cars only hold my attention for a tiny bit, only the Acen car while it was being driving every actually stopped me in my tracks for more than that 30 seconds. So is it really worth it?

I don't know who owns the title or the specifics on the truck - but as it gets closer to ACen it would be awesome to drive it to area events and hand out flyers, since it does command so much attention.

A decal with the dates and website (if that's not on there, haven't seen it lately) perhaps too. So it gets people looking just driving in traffic (lord knows there's enough time to read it when you're driving downtown!)

Soulcrash owns the truck... it's actually his personal property, he's just awesome and decorated it with acen stuff 'cause he loves us so much.

Driving it around would be cool, but if that happens I would hope that Soulcrash would get something out of it... comps or something. *shrug* But I don't have the authority to say/do anything about that, so it's just my own personal opinion!

People *have* been wondering about how to promote ACen...

Having this truck at various (related) events as part of the Roadshow could be cool.

Just my random thought.

About that.... a few days ago... I brought the ACen truck at a event my work was hosting.... sort of did a mini promotion there.. I almost forgot at the last minute to post up the flyer on the truck

http://i50.tinypic.com/e5r22v.jpg

Just ignore the NOS energy drink products on the truck... My car club asked me if they can do that.... cause..... NOS was the sponsor that night.. as we wanna make them happy.... so I was like... errr okay....

I also appear at some car shows with the truck.... so I sort of promote there..

and sometimes in March, I'll bring it in to MGM Lounge for "Animated Saturday". Since one of the guys that's running it is ACen related... and I promise him that I'll come to it...... Yet.. I have to bring in the truck cause... that's the only ride I can use at that time... >.>

As for the roadshow.. I was never ever asked directly to help them via bringing the truck... every time I bring in the ACen truck to a con... they're also there.... too bad I don't really get something back in return for bring it in... ever way... I had to bring it to the other cons cause... that's my main ride of choice that I have... >.>

But yeah..... talking about the truck.... ACen staff never directly talked to me about the truck VIA email or something, but talked only at the cons..... so it's most likely won't be appearing anywhere near the con, just parked somewhere around the area... onless I drive it there.. and park it in the Hyatt property...... oh welll.......... T.T... But I really don't wanna do that and piss off the Rosemont Police or anyone else... >.<

I think the only way a "car show" would be cool is if it was well known crap from anime. Like a Mach 5. I'd go see it. XD

I am a car guy and I know all about the cars at the shows very well. I don't pay attention to the car show though. I find it rather boring since I have seen all those types of cars before. I was also never into making cars look nice, just making them perform better. I like to see them moving and see the drivers talent if they have any. A drift event would be more fun than a car show but I know that would never happen. As for the music, it is a nuisance. I like techno but only at a rave. Anywhere else it is just kind of annoying.

If you have a car show again just display actual cars from Initial D, Wangan Midnight, Over Rev! and other car related mangas/animes.
AE86, FC, FD, R32, R33, R34, Silvia, Sil 80, S30 Fairlady Z, Whaletail Ruf, SW11, and so on...

No RX8's, stock 240sx's, Civics, and other more common cars...

Can I request a closed thread on this? The car show event has been dead since the end of last year... >< So what's the point on trolling or criticizing this event that I love anymore??
