Ace Auto/International Speedway is soon to be just a memory. After
fighting the evil landlady off, and holding the line for well over a
year, she finally won on a technicality. After surviving 25 years of
crushing cars, disemboweling computers, racing power tools, thrashing,
bashing, moshing, paying the rent on time (25 years = nearly 1 Million
dollars paid in rent), collecting junk, giving junk away,
cross-dressing, jet engine revving, bicycle stunts, stupid pet tricks,
bad beer, good whiskey, bad jokes, worse pranks, and all the other
marvelous activities that we've grown to expect while hanging with the
Junkman, Ace is to be no more.
Ace Auto is Dead! Long Live Ace!
We will celebrate this most important man and place exclusively with
artists who have graced ACE:
MCs Dr. Hal Robins & Mr. John Hell
Attaboy and Burke
Extra Action Marching Band
Hammer Horror Classics
plus DJ Stradivarious Rex, aka our own zombie lover Big Daddy
