2nd Best of Show

Yesterday, the GT/CS went to the 25th Annual Mustang-Cobra Show in Liberty, MO. The GT/CS placed 1st in the 67-68 Coupe class and took "Best of Show".

It is funny how some shows the car does not even get a look. Other shows, it draws all the crowd.

By the way, I think putting the Elite Marti Report on display has made a huge difference in attracting people to the car this year.

Thanks to everyone. I have enjoyed showing the car. As well, very cool to take the car to a show and have my son brag about the work he did on the car. He loves to accept the awards!!!

I completely agree that some shows you get a bunch of attention and some shows none. happens to me. Sometimes me and my buddies just sctarch our heads and shrug.

That is about all you can do. If you try to figure it out, it will drive you nuts. I also like the fact that on some shows you can polish the car, get every little spot off the car, and not get a look from the judges. Those days when you feel like the car is not the best it has been, those are the days that it gets looked at closely, and receive awards.

Once again, can make you nuts if you think about it!! The right thing to do is to go, have a good time, talk to a few folks about the car and their cars, and leave with a smile on your face no matter what happens.

People just love historical information , just check out the lines going into the Alamo exhibit every day - not that I am suggesting that the CS is/was as important as the Alamo - but for a Car Buff it probably actually was!!

congrats on the award - how about posting the Trophy Picture ?
