It's hard to believe 2020 has launched MSP CAR SHOWS into our 11th Season producing Car Shows & Family Events in the Dallas-North Texas area! Especially since we produced our first event as a 'favor' to a restaurant that wanted to celebrate its 1st Anniversary with a classic car show. We have been blessed to have grown to 35-40 Events each Season thanks to the many Car, Truck, Bike Show Enthusiasts and our loyal Sponsors that participate in our Events. We appreciate every one of you.

He is an avid car, truck & motorcycle enthusiast. He was raised in an East Texas town of 1,000 (Grapeland), where he got off the school bus each afternoon to work at his Dad's and Mom's (Herman & Betty Herod) Service Station & Store. He was so young when he started, after checking the oil and filter and sweeping out the Customer's Floor Boards, he would stand atop two wooden coke cases in order to reach the center of the customers' windshields as he cleaned the windows! Yes, this was when we had "Service Stations" and no one was expected to fill their own vehicle with gas!
