May 15

OCLI/NY Show

Merrick, NY

El Camino

Second Place!
A very nice day for a car show but a very strange class as the organizers mixed foreign and domestic cars in the same classes. We were up against a number of mid 70's muscle cars and one 2003 Mitsubishi! We beat all the muscle cars but came in behind the Mitsubishi.

Rotary Car Show

Bayville, NY

Best Display!
I'm not completely clear on what this award is as there were no specific classes. Based on the other awards (Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Hot Rod, etc.) I think it means the best overall presentation (concept, cleanliness, layout, etc.)
