Pretty excited to share this - we're going to have the Texas Bluesmobile at the Jimmie Vaughan & Lou Ann Barton show in Dallas on 2/7 then on 2/8 & 2/9 we'll have it displayed on the showroom floor at the Dallas Comic Con Expo in Irving! If you're in Texas come by and say hello!

^ Cool stuff, man! I noticed some guests at the comic-con sci-fi expo include The 6 Million Dollar Man, The Bionic Woman, and RoboCop (Lee Majors, Lindsay Wagner, Peter Weller). And Richard Dreyfuss? $40 to get an autograph from Richard Dreyfuss? $60 for a pic?? wtf.
If you see Dreyfuss say hi to him for me. Tell him you know the limo driver he swore his head off at for 10 minutes, 20 years ago in Vancouver when they were filming Another Stakeout. Apparently little Ricky doesn't like limousines, he wants to be driven around in smaller cars because his feet don't touch the ground in the back of the limo and he slides all over the place, lol. Well I didn't know that, nobody told me. I pick him up at the airport and we get to the limo, he gets in then I get in, then he proceeds to shit all over me, "put this in your f*****g computer, I don't like these f*****g cars," etc. etc. I just listened and nodded, was very eager to get that arrogant little prick out of the car. I'd pay $40 to kick him in the nuts but for an autograph? And Dan Aykroyd travels the world signing anything you want for free.
Should be plenty of good pics of your Blumo from that show.

Steam, that's a great story. I didn't know you had all these hollywood connections; I'd pay $60 for a pic of you kicking him in the nuts.

For anyone who's interested - I took fresh new shots of my car today with the new speaker on the roof. Had trouble uploading it here. You can see it at www.facebook.com/texasbluesmobile (Steam if you can upload it I'd sure appreciate it)
Yeh, the attachments don't seem to want to work ... not sure why. But that's what the proboards photobucket is for
That's really an outstanding job on that air raid siren!
I noticed this next pic from your Jan. 7 facebook post which you thought was an actual screen grab from the movie ...
I recognize that one and it's actually a fiberglass replica that was made in Japan for the Japan Blumo, which is the one that was bought from Travis Bell. It's quite outstanding as well and that pic has fooled people in the past, but for sure it's the one on the Japan Blumo. Notice the straight antenna I'll look around for a good side shot of the Japan speaker, I think yours might be more detailed with the simulated rivets.
We had none other than Jimmie Vaughan climb into my Blumo to sign it tonight. Go add us Blumo fans! Www.facebook.com/thetexasbluesmobile We post all sorts of celebrity updates, news on our car, repair ideas and more! Thanks all!
