8 years of ownership, 5 years of repairs, $85k worth of garage building and construction, and $40k worth of car repairs and maintenance, I finally did it!

I finally won a first prize at a real car show...our local Mustang Clubs Fabulous Fords and Truck Show. Judging was done by non-club members, and I creamed the competition!

Was it worth it? You betcha! Woohoo!

If spending a 125 thousand was your goal to win a plastic trophy worth about 10 bucks, then you have achieved your goal.
Dumb ass. ;)

Lighten up Gingerstang. Randy, that is very cool. I look at it as winning such a trophy reflects on your desire and ability to restore a vintage car. And if that is important to you, no matter what it costs, then I am 1 million % behind it.

Go girl friend :thumbup:

Great Job Randy but I have to know something. Did you put the curse of MIDLIFE on all your competition?

My comments on the costs restoring the car were surely sprinkled heavily with sarcasm.

Congrats indeed.
But I somehow can't get used to the idea that you have an actual functioning car, much less are entering shows. Still seems like you should be hunting a decent door or a painter without too many loose screws. :p

Congrats Randy! Well deserved for the amount of time and anguish you've put in and suffered. Look forward to seeing it in person someday.
