Pimp Your Ride

Unfortunately, a large portion of society judges an individuals personal and professional worth by the vehicle they drive - arrive in. And that includes your clients. Even if your car is 25 years old, (and not a 'classic' by any standards) the bare minimum you should do is take it through a car wash, trash the fast food wrappers and coffee cups at the gas station and vacuum it out when you get a chance. You'll feel better, you'll look better arriving at the gig and you'll give the impression (or the illusion!) that you're a pro and in control of yourself. If your ride is at the ass end of embarrassing due to rust, decay or downright butt-ugliness; take a cab, hire a car service, or park a block away and walk.

Usually all it takes to pimp your ride is to clean it.
Get on that.

    So very true! I remember in my early days I arrived at a summer blockparty. I was a few houses away from the destination when the car started billowing smoke. the gut that hired me was satnding there in disbelief. I had to think fast so whenI got out I said " You see it's not all smoke and mirrors" at the end of the show he gave me a fine tip and actually gave me a 1977 camaro. We are still friends to this day.

  3. It's a little tougher in the winter when there's lots of snow and salt on the roads, but yes, you're quite right.
