Default First car show... And I won!

Small local show and I won best modern muscle car. Beat a bunch of camaro's and a challenger. Made me feel like my mods were going in the right direction. Great day and even better that my 10 year old daughter was there and helped me detail the car, we won the trophy together.

Congrats on the win. I am sure your daughter was happy. My son is 10 and also helps out detailing the car. We won our first trophy last month at the Mustangs Unlimited show. My son was so happy, he was holding on to that trophy for hours.
