    Nice cars guys. Please create a seperate showoff thread to display your car. It'll be easier to vote on by linking to your individual threads than by linking to this one thread with everybody's cars.

    Seems to me that a winning entry should be well-rounded...? Appealing looks and performance? and extra points given for entries by members over 40...

    Good point Weasel. Fair enough that the car must be current to date? I'll add that to the OP.

    Personally I like all show and no go and I'm sure there's members that feel the exact opposite. We'll see how it turns out in the poll next week.

    I can put the Yellow Beast up.... We've been working on this what seems to be an ON-Going project since 2004.(because it is!) Originally bought for me for my Bday and was at one point, my daily driver for 2 years. Then one day Bobby and an awesome idea of making it into a full drag car and RWD! And he hasn't stop with this car yet. He is now relocating the turbo once again and is in the middle of doing all the fab work himself. Hes trying to get things done for this race season. Last year we ran into some issues with tranny flex plate and went sent the motor off to darton to get sleeved. We will see what this year will get us. Keep your fingers crossed. Hoping for low nines !!
