Patty Parties with the Stars and Cars at Coachella

Shad_Balch_JustDrive_Coachella_2015I was delighted again to receive a very exclusive invitation from Shad Balch, his arm picture with his #JustDrive Tattoo, to the #LoveDriveVibe Chevrolet Performance Cars Pool Party during the Coachella Music Festival. This Chevrolet_MacDonals_BootsyBellows_Coachella_2015haute party was held at the Bootsy Bellows Estate, also sponsored by McDonalds again, the first weekend of the 2015 Coachella Valley Music Festival in Indio. This year’s festival features AC/DC, Drake, Jack White and more than 160 other acts.

This star studded party featuring Chevrolet's Corvette and Camaro Paris_Hilton_Coachella_2015performance vehicles, included selfie photo op booths and selfie sticks and was entirely too fun! The music, food and pool antics created quite a celebrity buzz with stars in attendance like Paris Hilton, Chris Brown,Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner, the 19-year-old "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star.

Chris_Brown_Coachella_2015What did I think of the Chevrolet performance vehicles at the #LoveDriveVibe party? Gorgeous and playful in this very hip rockin' setting. There was a booth with a Camaro in a racing "winner's circle", champagne and all, to shake and spray all over! Kudos to Chevrolet for showing how youthful, cool and fun the Chevrolet brand can be!

This #Carchella party fare included libations from McDonald’s and Absolute Fergie_BlackEyePeas_Coachella_2015Vodka and ended on a very high note with Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas making a special stage appearance with rapper 2 ChainZ.

From Wikipedia: The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (commonly referred to as Coachella or the Coachella Festival) is an annual music and arts festival held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, located in the Inland Empire's Coachella Valley in the Colorado Desert. It was founded by Corvette_Coachella_2015Paul Tollett in 1999 and is organized by Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG Live. The event features many genres of music, including rock, indie, hip hop, and electronic dance music, as well as art installations and sculptures. Across the grounds, several stages continuously host live music. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent; a smaller Oasis Dome was used in 2006 and 2011, while a new Yuma stage was introduced in 2013.


And who was this guy with the blue hair and a beard?

Bret Michaels shares his “Endless Love” for Nissan Vans

Nissan_ToughLove_Bret_FoldedArms-sI confess: I wanted to hate the concept when I received the press release from Nissan announcing their new advertising campaign featuring iconic American rock and reality star Bret Michaels serenading various Nissan vans as he joins company technicians during vehicle durability testing.

Filmed on location in 110° weather at Nissan’s Arizona Testing Center, a 3,050-acre facility in Stanfield, Arizona, Nissan said the video “gives a tough new spin to the classic ‘80s love song ‘Endless Love’ – complete with fire, smoke and an instrument panel-mounted Bret Michaels bobble head doll,” as a way to bring awareness to the more than 6,600 harsh durability tests endured by Nissan’s NV Cargo, NV Passenger, and NV200 Compact vans.  I don’t have much personal interest in Bret Michaels or Nissan’s commercial vans, so I didn’t immediately rush to watch the video, which is posted on YouTube. (The song is also available for download at Nissan’s promotional microsite )

A Woman, Her Horse, and Her Truck

Maybe you’ve seen the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado commercial about a woman, her horse, and her truck?  It’s a 60-second story about the bond between the pair who are “two bodies with one mind” as they work the barrel course at the rodeo to win “a ribbon that goes on her wall, not in her hair.” And the truck that gets them to the rodeo in the first place. If you haven’t seen it yet, then click to watch it here.

What is it about the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado that would make it appeal to women, regardless of whether she’s hauling a 1200-pound passenger or has other hard-working needs, or just for everyday functionality?

Automakers spent their fair share to grab the attention of car shoppers, with more than a dozen commercials from companies like Ford, Toyota, Honda and Smart promoting eco and family friendly vehicles to Cadillac, Jaguar, Maserati, and even Kia promoting their luxurious and exotic choices.

Driving the Can-Am Spyder - A Three-Wheeled Cruiser that Ladies can Love

Can-Am_Spyder_RT_Road_TourerIf you’re a motorcycling enthusiast who enjoys the exhilaration offered by two-wheeled forms of transportation but who doesn’t necessarily want to worry about the effects of gravity and physics that accompany such vehicles, then consider the three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder instead.

I took my first ride on one of these unique vehicles at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach last week, on the same day that Danica Patrick was there for her #FirstTime on a Can-Am Spyder. I am not an experienced motorcyclist -- okay, I admit, I’ve never piloted a motorcycle at all -- so I had a bit of a learning curve. While my first experience might have been a little bumpy as I learned to steer and control the throttle at the same time, I didn’t have to worry about dropping a motorcycle on its side, or learn the physics of counter-steer. While some of the bloggers with previous motorcycle were quickly proficient piloting the Can-Am Spyder around the coned course, let’s just say I’ll need a little more practice before I dare venture out onto public streets.
