Andy Goodman has been a great help to me in keeping up with the latest trends in the youth automotive segment. Because he’s been both a builder of show cars and an organizer of car shows, he understands both the hobby and the business. He knows why enthusiasts modify their cars and what they want from providers of goods and services. Trends in the youth automotive segment move fast, and Andy has been a reliable spotter of things that are heating up and things that are cooling off.
