    It's simple. We polled a few of our favorite builders at the 2009 Grand National Roadster Show and asked them what their favorite roadster of the event was... And now, you guys get to vote for your favorite from the bunch.

    Voting will end on Sunday (not sure on the time yet) and the car with the most votes will win the first annual Jalopy Journal: Best Roadster trophy that was built and delivered by Acme Speed Shop. More on the trophy later... For now, here's the 2009 entrants.

    ****was just notified. The vote will end tonight, so you had better vote now.

    A couple of answers to questions that I've already gotten... And then, I'm going to bed.

    1. I asked all of the builders casually so as not to stress them out and to get their gut reactions. I didn't tell any of them why I was asking although some already knew... Fellas polled include the likes of Dennis McPhail, Rod Powell, Jimmy White, Troy Laden, etc... I picked one of the finalist myself because I'm selfish... damnit.

    2. The only rule was the car couldn't be a historical AMBR winner (if so, I think the Neikamp would win every year) and the car, obviously, had to be a roadster.

    difficult choice between cars 7 and 9......but Steve has stuck with his Daimler Hemi in the Blue 32 and I did see it at his shop last year in bare metal so I know how well it's been built.....so it's got to be car 9

    Ryan - thanks for bringing us a little piece of the show. I voted for the Branch Roadster because on the first quick scroll down, it really caught my eye - almost too simple and clean to belong in the chrome and mirrors crowd. I was nearly swayed by the #9 car .... caught its Daimler motor in a heartbeat; I had an SP250 years ago so had a hard time saying no to that one...
    The #8 car brought back a powerful deja vu of an AMT model I built in the late 50's early 60s.

    The Hamb award is a great idea, no more bitching for the traditionalist. Theres some real quality hamb worthy cars there. But i went with No.5, only because it jumped out at me fom the little thumb nail pictures.

    Car #7 is really nice and it was close. But car#3 says HAMB to me! Jimmy White does cars the way I would want mine mine to look....quality work,style,and taste. LimeySteves '32 was amazing too! Troy's truck is like a kids dream come true!
    Talk about a tuff decision,,,,,FUCK!

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I choose number 5. Really on a "vintage race-car theme" kick these days. (as are almost 10% of those polled) Noticed all the Dzuz fastners inline, but I would not expect anything less. Wish I could have seen them all in person. Hell, picking one is like choosing which one of my sisters I love the best.:eek:

    Not really looking forward to judging cars at our upcoming car show, so much hard work put into each one.

    Thanks for coming up with the pole.

    #7 that color is superb. The stance and simplicity make it stand out. I see many others agree.

    These are all very nice cars and it's tough to pick one favorite. For me, I guess I have to stick with the grass roots type cars. Kim Vranas' Tub (a local favorite) and Tom Branch's roadster. I get the feeling these two cars will get the most road rash of any of them and that's what it's all about, driving them!

    Simple, clean, well laid out with out all the gimmick's. Bitchin stance and the right look, #7 by a long shot. The Tom Branch car is stunning to say the least. These are some tough choices though.

    Sorry to hijack this but Ryan did you happen to grab any shots of the 150/D dragster behind the Munz 29? Looks almost to be flattie powered and I know how much you like your drag racing!

    Hands down this should win- the craftsmanship is amazing and I know Chuck & Kim put their hearts into it. Plus - its not like ANYTHING else out there.
