This past week Ed Shadle, Steve Wallace and Keith Zanghi have been working overtime in Austin TX at NIWeek.  The week long conference brings together thousands of users of National Instruments products to see and share the very latest in NI Instrumentation.  This is a preveiw of several updates this week. In this first installment, we wanted to give special thanks to all the folks that made this a very successful week.  We want to thank GCR – TDS right at the start because the NAE Transporter now rides on TDS Tires exclusively.

 Thor and Lisa Holder with Keith and Ed

Lisa and Thor Holder, owners of Signs By Tomorrow Houston South flew up from Houston.  Keith made a mistake when he ordered the National Instruments Decal with black letters, which didn’t show up well on a black painted background!  Lisa said no worries and brought a new one along with white letters!  The entire Signs By Tomorrow Team flew up in their Beach Barron and treated the team with lunch! Talk about service!  Lisa and Thor have supported the team from the very beginning. We were glad to see them again.

We are happy to announce a partnership with the LeMay – America’s Car Museum. ACM spotlights America’s love affair with the automobile.  Featuring a nine-acre campus – with a four-story museum as the centerpiece – ACM, situated atop Tacoma, Wash., 30 minutes south of Seattle and in the shadow of Mt. Rainier, became one of the world’s largest auto museums and attractions when it opened in June 2012.

ACM is designed to preserve history and celebrate the world’s automotive culture.  The spacious facility houses up to 350 cars, trucks and motorcycles from private owners, corporations, and the LeMay collection, which amassed a Guinness Book record of more than 3,500 vehicles in the mid-‘90s.

“Everybody remembers their first car, family driving vacations, a sports car they fell in love with as a teenager,” says ACM CEO David Madeira. “Personal experiences with cars are at the heart of the American experience, and we’re going to showcase more than a century of automotive lifestyle and history as well as the future of transportation.”

The Eagle will be attending auto shows all across America promoting this unique facility.
