Default Hershey Custom Show

Sorry I have been busy catching up with home life and some tough legal issues with my drivers license..... I lost the Show at Hershey. It was a "regional show" and I made the mistake of putting my car in Street Wild instead of Street Mild and was way outgunned facing 4 doors with 1ooo lbs of plastic hanging from them with 3000 amp Audiobahns and video screens where I never would have thought of adding. Live and learn.

I did have a good time even though it was a cheap show and held in parking lot of the Hershey Giant Center insted of inside the arena. Saw some nice cars and learned a few more "presentation tips"

Entering the Hershey Giant Center, .... We all thought it was going to be inside....NOT!

The Line of cars are all Dreamaker cars up to the Blue one. We almost had one of every color. The Marbled Jaguar was put across from the rest of us.

This Corvette was sharp! And showed me how important it is that I swich my 50 series tires down to 30 series so the whole wheel and tire show when my body is slammed. Loved the 'vette and it'* look.

The Show had a Band with half pipes leading to stage with BMX'ers and Skakeboard guys popping back and forth off the stage." Bastards on Wheels" ... And ya know I had to go to this booth and get my very own "Bastards on Wheels T-Shirt with their Name and Skull and Bones logo on it.

Wow...John...are you sure they didn't have a few mice judging this thing.

The car is stuffing and the poster really knocks the socks off.

Keep up the good work.. you'll start winning left and right.

Nice pics!

Looks like you had fun and learned a bit more of the nuances of entering the right catagory and all. Some sweet cars there!

BTW, which car did win?

Thanks Bill, and Lash there were alot of classes and individual winners. The Judges were all about Plastic, sound and video screen. Our Jag was beat out By a VW Bug with OEM Metallic Green paint with enuff sound to shatter glass and enuff video screens to pull off a space launch. Even a 25 inch monitor that came up from behind the back seat rest hydraulicly.

Ya Shadow it will be red candied some time this summer. Almost forgot about it

Was this a CAR show or an audio/video show? WTF. VW Beetle I'm sure with all that baggage it didn't even look good. Nate told me that Jag has never lost a show either. Seems like the judges were pretty lame.

I'm still glad you got the poster for the show. The car is jaw-dropping!

I was bitter for awhile too... But it was, as it said, Import Wars and the judges were looking for Kids stuff. Aftermarket addons and such. Body kits, sound and video prevailed.Thanks for the extra effort to get poster here before show and it got alot of attention.

I got some videos I have to reformat to .wmv and will post later.
