bronco to the car show.

My daughter entered her truck in the school car show today. After seeing the competition I thought she may have a chance to place. We spent the afternoon looking at the cars and staying in the shade. Well long story short she got nothing. But the cars I thought had a chance to win got nothing either? Seems that when kids vote their friends cars gets all the votes. Oh well, it was still a good car day. We got lots of nice comments on the Bronco. here are some of the cars I thought would win. yes that is a Buick GSX and the guy announcing called it a mustang!!! The owner was sitting with me and I just about fell out of my chair laughing. He took it pretty well. The Volkswagen got first place. it was a nice build. No more school car shows for me.

The VW is cool looking, but unless it has a 427 under the "hood" - I don't see how it should have beat the bronco. Sure, I'm biased. But the bronco is sweet!!!

BTW- I love those wheels on it!

man I should seriously learn to read better cause I suck at it. I guess I should have paid better attention, instead of day dream about broncos and girls.

Wow Bax, your Bronco sure turned out nice. How long till Chuck has a top for you? Also those GSX's are pretty rare anymore. Most people don't realize how fast they were, back in 1970. I'm not much of a GM guy but those GSX's always catch my eye.

Thanks for the complement. Chuck will send the top to me when he is finished and happy with letting it go out. The GSX was nice but half the people didn't even know what they were looking at.

Your Bronco looks great. High School is and always will be an ongoing popularity contest. Has your Bronco ever been in a magazine?

That Bronco totally looks great! I would have voted for it for sure. Maybe you didn't win but that's how those types of shows go sometimes. The important thing is whether or not you enjoyed the show with your daughter.

Those highschool shows are definitely a popularity contest. If there was an actual craftsmanship judging things would have come out a little different cause those quarters on yours are killer. The GSX brought back fond memories of when my dad had his Olds 442...I love the non "big three" musclecars from that time period. Thanks for the pictures.

I never look to get an award of any kind at any show. There is always something that one can sit back a question about the show like how does a brand new car off the show room floor place or win! Half the time I don't hang out that long to see who won what anyways and bax, enough can't be said about your Bronco. It is sweeeeeet looking.

The Bronco is very nice. Looks like a nice show. If I could have one of all the toys I want the VW 3 door pickup would be one of them. The idea of the bed flipping down and the extra storage bin under the bed is too cool. Love the Porsche rims and the stance. Oh, this is a EB forum and I am glad to finally have another EB in my stable. Yeah yours will be a background for me too. Wish the tops would have been better to us...
