The Motor Enclave has received an overwhelming response to the announcement of its inaugural “Cars En Coffee” event coming January 13, 2024. Cars En Coffee is a free event open to the public that will be held at The Motor Enclave Tampa, a 200-acre experiential motorsports venue conveniently located at the corner of I-4 and I-75, less than 15 minutes from downtown Tampa.

Since the initial announcement in November, The Motor Enclave has received over 2,500 RSVPs for this free admission event and is preparing to fill its 1.6-mile Formula 1-designed track for the car show, cleverly named "Cars En Coffee." The event is scheduled for Saturday, January 13 from 8-11 a.m. and is open to classic, exotic, muscle and any other collector vehicles.

Automotive content creator Tim Burton (a.k.a. “Shmee150”) will serve as honorary host of the event and be present to meet and greet fans, and shoot content for his vast social media audience. Tim is known globally for sharing his personal experiences in the luxury automotive world via content with an honest and personal touch that is not found elsewhere. He connects with fans, friends, followers and partners via many social media streams, and in particular YouTube videos.

“What other way is there to open the largest Private Garage community in the world than hosting the largest car show in Florida and having one of the top automotive content creators in the world present?” said Enclave Founder/CEO Brad Oleshansky. “Construction of our motorsport paradise is coming to an end and our outlook for corporate and public events has never been greater. I want this event and future Cars En Coffee’s to be free to the public so all enthusiasts can enjoy our facility.”

Longtime Advertising Star, Chisholm — the Earnhardt Steer — Has Passed Away at 27

Longtime Advertising Star, Chisholm — the Earnhardt Steer — Has Passed Away at 27
A Legendary Duo: Tex Earnhardt and Chisholm, the Iconic Steer of Arizona Advertising

Tex Earnhardt, sits confidently atop Chisholm, his majestic longhorn steer, in a serene Arizona landscape. Their bond shines through in this iconic image, perfectly capturing their memorable advertising legend.

Chisholm, a steer with a long claim to fame in Arizona advertising, has passed away at the age of 27. The longhorn became a familiar figure alongside Tex Earnhardt, a television personality and founder of Earnhardt Auto Centers.

Tex Earnhardt – famous for riding a steer (“no bull”) in commercials - worked with Chisholm for over a decade (up until Tex’s passing in April of 2020).

The image of Tex astride Chisholm appeared in ad campaigns, in website photos, and on branded merchandise like apparel and promotional items including plush animals bearing Chisholm’s likeness. In fact, the silhouette of such imagery has become the theme behind the vast majority of branding and marketing efforts for Earnhardt Auto Centers, themed: “The Spirit of Tex”.

“Dad always said he chose Chisholm for his gentle temperament and noble bearing,” Hal Earnhardt said. “Chisholm, for his part, always seemed happy wherever Dad was.”

“It was always fun to shoot a commercial with Chisholm,” commented Chris Kerr of Earnhardt’s marketing team, with an endearing chuckle. “We just had to keep an eye on his head. Those near-record length horns could knock you into the mud if you weren’t careful. But he sure was a big, sweet gentle giant.”

The commercial tagline is well known to many Arizonans: “Earnhardt -- it's a name you can trust, and that ain't no bull!” -- A slogan stemming from a comment in 1953 when a parade on-looker asked Tex how he “kept that bull so calm.” To that Tex replied, “…this? This ain’t no bull!” From there, a slogan and theme for doing business were born.

It’s true! While kids were marveling at a man on a big horned bovine, adults had an even bigger reason to laugh.

The ad campaign’s inside joke is that the animal star is a steer rather than a bull.  

“While Chisholm was known due to Grandpa’s commercials, he was actually a beloved family pet,” said Nature Earnhardt, Earnhardt’s Media Director. “It wasn’t just the treats in our pockets that made Chisholm happy to see us. He was part of the family.”

When Tex Earnhardt passed away, he left his beloved longhorn in the care of his children and grandchildren. Chisholm retired on their ranch lands to enjoy the remainder of his longhorn days.

Their family-run dealership group -- Earnhardt Auto Centers -- is marking the steer's passing with tributes on their websites and social media.

“Like my Dad, Chisholm was truly one of a kind,” said Jim Babe Earnhardt. “As I told my family, Tex and his buddy are riding the range together once again.”
