She won 1st place at Roundup!

I am here to proudly (& surprisingly) that Satan won FIRST PLACE at Mustangs Northwest's annual Roundup show People's Choice show. 1st place in the GTCS/Mach1/Bullit section that they placed ALL CS cars into. Competing against the Bullits, those pretty Mach 1 cars, and ALL other CS cars...

And she won a special award sponsored by Nat'l Parts Depot for "Car most needing help during restoration", and awarded me a gift cert. I posted a story on her revival to tell her history.

Wow is what I can say.

The ballot had something new this year to prepare for MCA nat'l show next year. They grouped all Bullit/Mach1/Calspec in their own class. It was confusing as a couple CS cars were (oops) put into the 05-09 coupe and 68 coupe class.

Like Steve H, who won 2nd place in the coupe class with his 68 CS, as sponsored by RnRclassics! Thanks clubpro!

And Bill who won (I think) 2nd place in the MCA judged class.

3 1968 CS, no HCS, 4 new CS verts, and 9 new CS coupes attended!

And there was a dedicated section within classes to park the old and new CS cars in to set them apart from the rest.

Way to go Specials!
