Amy Fitzgerald
Cool Hand Customs

Amy participated in the Valkyrie Project. The purpose of the project is to showcase the wide range of talenled women in the industry and to inspire women to explore their interests in the automotive and motorsports fields. The project vehicle will serve as a platform for women in the industry to design, fabricate and ultimately build a uniquely powerful and equally beautiful car. Then go out and race it.

The car that was chosen was a 1969 AMC AMX. And the project car will be ready for the 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour.

Amy flew to Tampa Florida and worked at the High Performance Advisors. She spent several weeks there helping with the build along side Karen Salvaggio, Susan Carpenter, Nan Gelhard and JoAnn Bortles.

For more information about the build click here.

Amy co-owner and co-creator of Cool Hand Customs located in Middleton Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Dells Automotion

Let's talk Automotion! We will be talking with Matt who is the President of the Wisconsin Dells Cruisers. The club that puts on this "must be at" show.

Ralph Marquardt and his 1963 Falcon Cayuse

Ralph will be bringing this car to the Wisconsin Dells Automtion show. This car is a "saved" concept car from Ford.

This is an amazing story of a team of designers for Ford and how they saved the concept from being crushed. And how Ralph became owner of a true historic treasure.
