ASRW Partners with Muscle Car Network of Florida

Automotive Service & Repair Week (ASRW) is pleased to announce a new partnership for 2011 with the Muscle Car Network of Florida.  ASRW, comprised of the International Autobody Congress & Exposition (NACE) and the Congress of Automotive Repair & Service (CARS), is scheduled for Oct. 6-8 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. (with the education tracks scheduled to begin Oct. 5).

The Muscle Car Network plans to display approximately 80 vehicles on the ASRW show floor at ASRW, during the expo. The display includes rare, exotic and hot rod vehicles, which belong to members of the network. Additionally, the Muscle Car Network plans to make a donation to a local automotive charity Saturday, Oct. 8, to further education and training for the next generation of automotive service and repair professionals.

“Our audience has a true passion for automobiles, and we know they’ll appreciate this collection of vehicles. We’re pleased to be partnered with this group, and to have something new and exciting to offer at the show this year,” said Ron Pyle, Automotive Service Association (ASA) president and chief staff executive. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to give back to the local Orlando-area community, in appreciation of our time there.”

“This is a win-win for everyone involved. We’re excited for the opportunity to show off our ‘pride and joy’ to the industry professionals who attend ASRW,” says J.R. Goodman, Muscle Car Network executive director. “Our group loves giving back to our community and we’re especially pleased to contribute back to our local community, as wells to the education of future automotive professionals.”
