Touching down in Brisbane on Wednesday, California-based machinist Mike Curtis was a valued guest at the Eliminators Hot Rod and American Car Club clubhouse on Thursday night, July 13, as he begins his weekend of meet and greets as part of the Back to Brunswick rod run. Accompanied by an entourage of End of the Road C.C. members who aid in the running of the weekend, Mike mingled with club members and club sponsors before taking the stage for an impromptu interview and Q&A. He happily closed out the evening by signing autographs and talking shop with fans of American Hot Rod, the TV show which put the very likeable Mike into the spotlight.
Visitors to the run this weekend will have the chance to own a set of Mike Curtis Design wheels which will be auctioned on Saturday night at the Brunswick Heads Hotel, plus one lucky punter could score a gift voucher for a set of one-off wheels courtesy of Mike. According to run co-ordinator Rod Brewer, he’s also made a killer trophy to give away to his favourite car on Sunday at the show.
Back to Brunswick is underway right now, the weekend program can be found here.
