Tempest's first car show

Took it to my first local show today got lots of great comments and compliments on it. thinking of making the gauge pods over the winter as i have all kinds of people wanting me to do theirs when i tell them i made it myself. A beautiful 69' Judge took best engine, i was second in vote for "kids choice" to a 68' camaro,was not expecting anything as this is all new to me and i cobbled it together by myself and there were so many really nice original cars there and they did not have classes. 57' belair was best in show but just to have the other owners come up and tell me how much they liked what i had done with it was award enough for a car built by a carpenter....

heres some of the rides that were there

The second pic with the little boy, at a show last year a guy with a GTO had him under the front wheel with a sign that read something like "Now you can stop whining"....wasn't long and someone complained and he had to take it out.

lol....this was a church charity show would not have gone over well there either. Really liked that car though the flames were glossed and the rest was matte black clean chrome and a four door i have a soft spot for the unique cars.

Wow, how rare is a Judge with a white vinyl top?!?! Never seen one like that. Not sure I like it but it sure is different (Well... I'd love it if it was mine!)

Nice Buicks too. I have'nt even made it out to one damn car show yet this year much less the dragstrip. Thanks for posting the pics! Very cool your daughter is in to it too. Mine is starting to like it, but I can't see giving her my car, at least not with this motor in it. She's 10 and I guess I'm gonna have to start on something for her soon.

thanks Stacener, pales in comparison to some of the rides there but hey its my first shot at all of this. So far at two cruise ins i have 4 guys wanting me to do gauge panels for their cars over the winter.

John that green Buick was a 455 stage 1, 4 speed ,vert, 1 of 12 made...clean and original he won best original. The Judge was clean enough to eat off of won best motor, the heads were not even discolored at the exhaust ports, Early 69' with RA3 auto no AC. The 65' GTO was a mid 9's car with a 555 in it
