DSC_0077Blog_Ready

Motion Products Inc. was kind enough to host Morrie’s Luxury Auto and Morrie’s Heritage for a private tour at their facilities in rural Wisconsin last week. To say that we enjoyed ourselves is a bit of an understatement. Motion Products was founded over 30 years ago and in that time has become a world-renowned name for all things Ferrari, and they are now branching out into alternate luxury brands. “In the beginning it was a man and his passion for fast, beautiful cars and a desire to take his talents to the most powerful and influential stages in the world. Now a major player at such events as the Cavallino Classic and Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, MPI’s passion and desire is what has defined the organization.” The company is made up of 45 experts that work out of 3 different locations and handle everything from service to full concourse level frame up restorations. “With hundreds of awards to our name and more than 500 cars and counting, MPI is a true leader in vintage Italian restorations.”

DSC_0091Blog_Ready

We had the pleasure of spending our Father’s Day doing exactly what we would want to be doing. Hanging out and sponsoring the first annual Psycho Suzi’s Father’s Day car and bike show. A vintage and exotic car show taking place in Northeast Minneapolis at Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge on the river. Psycho Suzi’s is a tiki inspired bar that has one of our favorite riverfront patios in town, along with some of the best cheese curds and bloody mary’s a dad could ask for on his special day. We had a great showing of people checking out everything from a Nash Metropolitan to a newer Ferrari F-430 Spider, plus even a few motorcycles.

After hanging out and showing off some of the Morrie’s Heritage and Morrie’s Luxury Auto cars a few awards and gift certificates were handed out. With a strong presence of AMX cars it was only right that one took home the award for best car at the show. We can’t wait until next year and hope for the heat to drop from around 92 to maybe about 75 degrees, or we’ll just have bring more convertibles! Check out the photo gallery below to see some of the amazing cars and bikes from the show.
