    Did my first real car show, 2nd place import.

    It was the last show of the year, indoor, all weekend long. not alot of imports but for being practicly the ONLY daily driver at the show i placed a nice second. not bad concidering it was a points show, my first and, i was up against all trailer queens in my class. its true i love my car but i always chicken out for shows cause all i see are the many flaws. it snowed outside and i kept telling the looky-loos that while everyone else will be sweating bullets getting thiers cars home, mine gets driven everyday in the rain, shine or, snow. i learned alot like to really compete i need carpet, stantions, display, ect...
    i was smart to bring some before pics and a mods list but, i need a real sign. i did bring in my, hollywood special effects done, corpse and while everyone else freaked when someone got close to thier car. i let kids get thier picture in it and with my dead girlfriends arm around them, they loved it. nothing better than having others take pictures of your hard work.

    You definitely deserve it man! It’s one of my favorite cars on the forum. Did you get any pics of this car that obviously stole your trophy?
