Yessir, we parked in the Homebuilt Heaven lot. I was proud to be able to put all the marks on the entry from in the "I Did It Myself" column. We didn't win anything, but then I didn't really expect to. There were a gazillion really nice cars out there. We got to drive around the track a few times - not "at speed", just following a lead car - but it was still cool.
The dumps are working again so we had a ball cruising through the place with them open. We sure got lots of looks :D

wish more shows had a category like that ....can never decide which category i fall into , so usually end up in the "street rod" but most of those are full out resto-mods. Like you said its award enough to have the enthusiast show interest and be able to say "i did that". Hope your taking a lot of pics to share...:party:

Probably the best "reward" I got over the weekend was from all the people, professional paint/body guys included, whose jaws dropped when I told them I did it myself in my garage, and it was my first. That was gratifying.

I'm working on putting together a video that Mrs. Bear shot while we were driving around the track.

Awesome deal Bear.

You sir are my inspiration. I think you should have won for the meanest mother f'er category. But that's just me. :D

:cheers

Oh man that was painful to watch... at least it looked like it was a replica, judging from what looked like broken fiberglas on the nose.

Pretty sure it had to be a clone because the real ones had side-oiler 427's, not the mighty SOHC. I think that was the first 427 SOHC I've ever seen live and in person.
