Kind of cool day for me

Some of you have seen most of my posts and stupid questions and some of the issues i've encountered doing this build by myself. Drove it to a show/cruise in yesterday and it was a participant judged event. Only those who entered a car could judge the other cars. There were over 100 cars entered so not a big show by any means, Anyway, got judged "Best of Show"
I wasn't even paying attention, busy talking cars with someone and they had to announce my number 3 times before I heard it
I know the car is not worthy of this but i'll take it for what it is.. just fun

Sounds like a pretty neat outing to me! Your car looks great in the pictures so I'm sure live and in person it's a show stopper. Congratulations.
