I don't expect to win any competition, but I'm going a little different route because it's what I want. I've been building hotrods for 24 years, and this will be my first ECM driven hotrod, ie, no carburetor. Keeping true to my core, I'm going old school hotrod with it. The first "mod" was a MUST for a guy who lives, breathes, eats, and sleeps "hotrod", my Hurst shifter. Ordered within 24 hours of buying the car. Next was the Grip grille, then the BG Rod Works "Old School" Torque Thrust style 20" wheels. The K&N CAI was on the car when I bought it, so it was a nice surprise to find when I got home. As of last night, I'm now running the Diablosport Predator U7135 91 Octane tune on 93 Octane gas and increased shift firmness. Many other mods on the way, none of which I can mention here due to the stated rules, but there are BIG things just over the horizon, roughly $4k worth of mods... Did I mention I drive this car 1000 miles /week for work, and I haven't made my first payment yet? Lol

Best Other Car In Your Stable
i.e not your 300C, but your other car......1 photo MUST include your current 300 in the shot as well.

Sorry! Only car I've got access to at the moment. The 53 Chevy is in the garage (packed in with boxes, since we just moved in), the 66 Galaxie is at a buddy's garage a hundred miles away getting turbocharged, and I don't think anyone wants to see my 99 GMC Savana 3500 van or my wife's Nissan Altima. :pat:

I will take a few snaps of my Cob tonight at the ACE & will be back to this as soon as my wife comes home to do the post for me ( I not the sharpest tool in the box with computers ) . Will that be OK Billy ?

Don't worry Dirk, I'm thinking of doing a category where you would be able to enter. Don't want to give too much away though.

I will take a few snaps of my Cob tonight at the ACE & will be back to this as soon as my wife comes home to do the post for me ( I not the sharpest tool in the box with computers ) . I want to post a short video , can this be as well as the 3 photos or will in count as 1 of the 3 photos or will the video not be aloud ? Also I put some of this post up last night and it was deleted ! Can some one please tell me why ? I see others have posted similar and they have not been deleted ? You would not believe how painfully slow I am posting so for them to be removed is some what disheartening to say the least . If a post is deleted I think a short PM to the poster would 1/ make sure it did not happen again and 2/ It would just be more polite . PAT

Shame, I would have voted for it for sure. Always back the underdog even if it's just a Yaris.

I think its time you owned up NR and admitted these are the other cars you have in your stable.
Now all you have to do is have one of these pics parked next to Black Beauty 11 and you can enter it in the great competition which I'm sure you know about.

I will even let you and Sally remain in the first picture you posted :D
