Finally recognized!

Sorry for taking up the space. There have been tons like this. I am just proud of myself and my car. Took home my first trophy today. Was beginning to get bummed because I've been to 10 shows or so. They always favor the classics. BUT not today! Finally, getting some recognition for my efforts

p.s. Special thanks to my girlfriend for letting me borrow her wheels and in the process puncturing a whole in her car on accident .

p.s.s I was also offered a mint condition 57' Thunderbird for my car. He says the offer stands. Not sure what they are worth

Well, he said "I have a 57 Thunderbird over there if you'd like to come see it. Might be willing to trade" (something along those lines lol).

But yea the cheapest ones I am seeing are 80 grand lol. I didn't see the engine or under the hood at all....maybe he did a hybrid prius swap

Maybe... Or he might have added the double power charging system where it charges it in half the time! Who knows what he could have done to that bad boy lol!

Congrats.

The other guy probably was more than likely just enjoying some small talk - doubtful he was really interested. But then again I wasn't there....

Edit: BTW great job convincing your GF to get the ZL-1 bumper!

Congratulations!

Tell the truth, you bought your girlfriend her car so you could jack the wheels off it and win a car show right?

Hmm not quite, maybe if it was a totally restored trailer queen with the numbers matching supercharged motor it would be close to that.. But your normal run of the mill driver quality is going to be around $35,000 to $40,000. I saw one go on the Mechum auction recently for around $20,000

Congrats Adam on your win, maybe you should just consider buying your own set of wheels like hers...

Personally, '57 T'birds have been my favorite car since I first saw them in '57--312 with single or dual 4-barrel carbs. And right behind them is the '57 Fuelie Vette!

Om my! It took some V6 parts to put you over the top. FC get those wheels back ASAP and here is a tip, find someone else to swap them.

Congrats Adam!
