I see that bloody bog standard mid range fiat 500 was allowed onto the showfield again! wtf. and why were bog standard fiesta's on there aswell. I get that its "wheels day" not strictly a hot rod show, but come on. and to think that show cars were left out because of crap like this is quite bad really.

car of the show for me was the cream sled, stunning, although there where quite a few stunners, the red ford and yes, that alloy bodied rod was a work of art.

the little yellow uno it had alley wheels but it was so had to chose from all those daily motors dotted around the show field :shake:
Oh come on Rick, it was either the Superbird (shunted into the public car park with 200 hundred other yanks and rods) or the Uno! :pmsl: Simple solution, cordon the field into sections- yanks/rods/customs and then 'the rest', and also a public car park. Piss easy to do ....

Think it would be nice to recognise that 40yrs ago this was the first big winner



The trophies were all hand built (as we were all broke) but you would have thought Phill & Nick had just won the 'AMBR' trophy, truly nice guy's (ok, it's not a roadster but you get the point).

Credit and thanks to the photographer

Street Odessy...yes, In this guise I think it would still hold it's own.

Bob Swansboro won 'Best Burnout' :lol:, I made his trophy which was a wheel/slick from a model kit with cotton wool 'smoke' and bits of rubber scattered on a wood base (it was poor:shocked:).

I think Puddle Jumper won best interior.

We held a disco the night before the 1st Wheelsday, no sat-nav back then and I remember having to go to the Hogs Back to guide Street Odessy & Puddle Jumper etc to the club house (it was quite amazing leading those two cars), I remember it as a great night (sorry:bla:)
