Best of Show in Eagle, Idaho

I go to a handful of local car shows every year but this was the first time I won a sponsor’s best of show (other than Mustang specific shows). It was a surprise because there were some absolutely beautiful cars there but the GT/CS always attracts a lot of attention. The cars to the left of mine are my brother's (Bill Howell) 66’ Nova and my nephew's (Dustin Howell) 70’ 340 Duster - we have the big three US manufacturers covered.

Well deserved!!!!

Joe

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Wow. I still can't get over the Best in Show...that's just the neatest thing.
That award always seems to go to the 30's 40's and 50's custom guys. I'm really happy for you !!

The customs usually win but the best part of these shows isn't winning something but looking at other cars and listening to some of the old hot rodder's stories - great fun!! I certainly do appreciate the recognition also.
