Well, it's the 2nd full season the car has been on the road since I completed the restoration and it was finally recognized for what it is.  4UDrew show in Doylestown this past weekend.  There as about 330 cars there, and they recognized Top 40.  I'm not a "trophy hunter" guy like some car guys, I just like showing the car and talking shop with others, but it's still super cool to have your efforts rewarded.

Looks amazing.      Even more so that a tree had fallen on it.....hope you have a photo album with the work done for sitting at the shows.   Makes it even more impressive.

Hard work often gets overlooked by flashy wings and HP numbers. That is an amazing thing you did with your car and that trophy is well deserved. Keep it up man!

Lol ... I'm on the East Coast.  There's at least three car shows you could go to any given weekend day and tons of really nice cars owned by guys with deep pockets.  My father-in-law is an old school car guy and he always laments that this hobby has become a rich-mans game.

I actually don't have a picture book of any kind - other than my restoration thread that you guys all know about - I should put something like that together.

It's a shame ... the weather is not looking tomorrow at all :mad:

To the rest of you all that replied - thank you!  I could have never rebuilt that car into what it is without all the answers I received to questions I asked on this forum.
