Crashed Toys, an online repository for motorcycles, ATVs, RVs, exotic cars, boats, jet skis and snowmobiles (and more!) is hosting its grand opening this Saturday, April 23rd, at its Carpenter Freeway location, close-in to downtown Dallas. In what is described as a Texas-sized (natch…) get-together for everyone who enjoys cold drinks and hot rides, beyond the food and refreshments is the chance to watch the online bidding, kick tires at the custom bike show and – not incidentally – enjoy the treats from one of four onsite food trucks.
And if you don’t go for the food, drink or rides, know the venue is an absolute jaw dropper on Carpenter Freeway. As this is written we’ve not yet been inside, but the architectural footprint is like nothing we’ve ever seen on that stretch of urban freeway. In short, the building is a more-than-adequate draw…and with bikes and food trucks, a no-brainer! The press release follows.
DALLAS – CrashedToys, an online auction specializing in the sale of used and repairable powersport vehicles, and a division of Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPRT), will be hosting a Grand Opening event for its brand new 30,000 sq. ft. retail-entertainment-auction concept, on April 23, 2016 in Dallas.
Food, beverages, live music and a motorcycle bike show featuring celebrity judges will kick off at 11 a.m., following the Ride In and Chain Cutting Ceremony. Attendees are invited to come out, view inventory and bid on one of the largest selections of motorcycles, dirt bikes, ATVs, and high-end exotic cars in Texas.
“We can’t wait for everyone to see what CrashedToys of Dallas has to offer,” said Jay Adair, Copart and CrashedToys Chief Executive Officer. “This unique experience provides a new destination for enthusiasts to gather and hang out. You won’t want to miss this.”
The Grand Opening will feature a bike show from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. where guests are invited show off their bikes. Celebrity judges include Chuck Palumbo (former professional wrestler, mechanic and reality TV personality), Mike Metzger (American Freestyle Motocross rider and 5-time X Game medalist) and Steve Caballero (musician and professional skateboarder). Trophies will be awarded to some of the hottest rides in five different categories including Unlimited, Street Class Harley, Street Class Metric, Street Class Sportbike and People’s Choice.
There will also be giveaways throughout the day, including authentic CrashedToys gear. While at the event, guests are invited to grab a bite to eat from popular food trucks: Not Just Q, Best Bayou Bites, Holy Frijole and So-Cal Tacos. Cold beverages will be available for purchase from the custom designed Re-Bar in The Clubhouse and the Dead Man’s Bar in The Boneyard patio.
CrashedToys of Dallas, located at 7777 John W. Carpenter Freeway, was designed by Dean Dekker, who also designed the Truck Yard and the Katy Trail Ice House. The Dallas CrashedToys location was made from approximately 300 pounds of repurposed wood and 4 tons of repurposed concrete blocks from rural areas of DFW. All interior and exterior hardware, including door handles, table tops and vinyl wraps are custom built designs. Unique murals and paintings by Chris Arnold with Eyecon Studios can be found throughout The Clubhouse and The Boneyard patio.
“We are excited about the Grand Opening and showing off this incredible space,” said Trey Cluck, CrashedToys of Dallas General Manager and motorcycle dealership veteran. “Our vision is to offer a really cool place to meet up that features an entertainment space, refreshments and powersports sales all merged together. I think we have done that and then some. People have been stopping by to check us out and even taking photos with our murals.”
“Motorcycle and powersports enthusiasts won’t know what hit them. I’ve never seen anything like it during my 15 years in the industry,” said Cluck.
