WE'LL MISS YOU SAM BERNS
January 15, 2014

It is with great sadness that I report our friend Sam Berns passed away last Friday. He will forever remain an inspiration to me and the many other lives he touched. I was always happy to see Sam, he was always so upbeat and positive. I encourage you all to learn more about Sam and Progeria, which also took the life of my beautiful sister Amy.

Visit the Progeria Research Foundation page or watch the HBO documentary "Life According to Sam" to learn more about Sam, as well as the advances made in the treatment of Progeria. Sam's parents Dr. Leslie Gordon and Dr. Scott Berns, created the Progeria Research Foundation in 1999.

God Bless you Sam. You will live in our hearts forever.

SEMA SHOW - CHIP'S DAY 4 RECAP
November 9, 2013

Friday, our final day at SEMA for 2013.  The week went by so fast, it felt like one long day.  Today was a light day, I had an autograph session in the Lincoln Electric booth (exclusive welding equipment of Foose) and then an afternoon autograph session at the Foose Experience Tour tractor trailer.  In the morning I also met international guests from various 3M headquarters all over the world.


I really enjoy attending this show every year, I've been coming for nearly 30 years now.  The sheer number of space and vehicles is overwhelming.  It can be a little disorienting, but there is always so much great stuff to see.  I can't wait until next year when we get to do it all over again.

Well I'm off back home to the Foose shop.  We're getting very close to paint on the Impostor and we've got more Overhaulin' episodes to shoot.

I hope you were able to attend and enjoy the show.  If not, please take a look at our SEMA facebook photo album to see what you may have missed.

See you next year!

SEMA SHOW - CHIP'S DAY 3 RECAP
November 8, 2013

Back again at the SEMA show on Thursday, it was a day of autograph sessions.  I always love to meet people and it's still a little weird to think people want my autograph.  My only regret is I don't have enough time to sign an autograph or draw a picture for everyone who wants one.


The signing began at the WD-40 booth in the morning, then continued to the BASF booth next.  After that we had our first autograph signing at the new Foose Experience Tour booth.  The reaction to the rig was very positive.  We'll have the trailer on the road all year, we've got more events coming.  So, if you weren't able to make it out to Vegas for SEMA, we might just be in your town soon!  Our next two stops after this are Scottsdale and Del Mar for the Goodguys shows.

Around 2:30pm I sat down with Barry Meguiar at the Car Crazy Stage.  We filmed a quick interview, talked about Overhaulin', the Foose Experience Tour and cars.  I always love spending time with Barry, he is a wonderful ambassador for our industry.  

After a Pirelli autograph session I went to my room and got ready for the SEMA banquet dinner.  I helped present the Gen 3 Innovator Award and got to spend time with many of my friends from the industry.

Check out our pics from today at the show on our SEMA facebook photo album.
