I hope you all had a great Labor Day, as I did watching auto racing. It’s nice that there is one day that celebrates people like us who work hard for an honest living. I spent my weekend watching racing, and I spent some time with my family. I had a great weekend, and I’m in a good mood.
I’m also in a good mood because I’m finally able to announce a new project for The Driver Suit Blog. I’m going to try a theme month. This November, all four Friday Features will be devoted to Formula 1. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while, and I can now finally confirm that all the pieces have been placed.
This will also be the first in what I hope will be a series of theme months. I’m thinking of doing a Wheel Reviews month in January, and an IndyCar month at some point in 2017. I’m not sure what form IndyCar month is going to take as of this writing, but I’m thinking some things through.
Also, in terms of 2017, I can now confirm with 100% accuracy that the schedule will remain the same as this year, and all of the videos for 2017 have been completed. I’m also excited to announce that music will be returning to Introduction to Sports Memorabilia and Introduction to Racing Press Kits. All in all between 17th and 18th seasons of Introduction to Sports Memorabilia, and Season 4 of Introduction to Racing Press Kits, there are a total of 36 videos ready. I will begin working on uploading them within the next few weeks.
I’m also making a slight protocol change to Throwback Thursday. For 2017, I’m going to do NHRA, F1, and IndyCar throwback schemes. Also, after 2017, I will do all four series, and maybe the minor leagues, though I haven’t even begun to make final decisions on that yet. I’m also deciding the possibility of adding a new project to The Driver Suit Blog…but I’m keeping that under wraps for the time being.
I’ve got a busy few months ahead of me, the Paint Schemies and Paint Scheme Leaderboard will make their unusual returns in December. I’ll see you tomorrow with the Paint Scheme Tracker!
