SQUEEG'S KUSTOMS won the AMBR! HELL YEAH !!!!!
more pics coming soon !
I thought the car was nice, my #2. Not so 'in-your-face' kind of a car that a lot of others were. This car wasn't on stands or spinning around... and it won.
What is more important - the car or the trophy?
At least it's half-ass traditional... can't say that much about but one car in the past 50 years that has won it.
I can't wait to see better pics.
didn't think I'd fall asleep lookin at an ambr winner ...but alas I was wrong...
It was a really well done car. Just didn't have all the flash you'd usually expect from an AMBR winner.
Once again the judges choice is underwhelming. When was the last time a car that didnt suck won the AMBR?
It's past 1 AM and I was having trouble getting to sleep. Then I saw a pic of this year's AMBR winner. Thanks!
There is NO answer to that one as it is an opinion at best.
but one shared by a whole lot of people, especially here
It doesn't matter, he owns them both and you don't.
It doesn't suck, and it's obviously a hell of a well done car. But it's a little typical.
It's a matter of personal taste, but any car with class, a proper stance and is actually displayed sitting on all four wheels with the doors, trunk and (most of) the hood shut is a big step in the right direction.
I guess you're right, but saying that "the AMBR winer doesn't suck" shouldn't actually have to be said, unfortunately.
That is one boring car. Not real fond of his wheel choice either.
Yes, it is very easy to be an armchair builder & I am very good at it.
Is that a metal or a glass car? Looks too plastic for me either way. Kind of shame if it is metal to be looking so plastic. Almost hope it is glass.
It is not the kind of car I'm into (or most here either probably), but looks like a pretty well done car for the style it is. Even though I'm personally not big on the car, I'm glad not everyone builds what I like and just the same thing. Personally, my tastes always run opposite what the crowd likes and glad to keep it that way.
It's boring, I wouldn't go out of my way to look at it and it's too flashy for me to drive.
Just my opinion.
They don't drive it at night much, do they.
this is out of left field... Im SHOCKED, but it looks like the new judging standard worked.
It is a a good looking car, not over the top or extreme. Just a good looking, well put together roadster.
My thoughts... It's a gorgeous car. Meaning, if I was 8 years old and had no pre-conceived notions, I would totally dig that thing. Seriously. And the craftsmanship? Over the top good.
The AMBR award isn't relevant to me as a traditional guy. I don't think it's supposed to be. And there is nothing wrong with that.
That black bitch'd light up with some king bees. I can dig it a LOT, Im a '33-4 drooler. I'm happy Jerger got it- always dug his track T & paint & stuff.
This one seemed to show a little more pizazz..... !http://hubgarage.s3.amazonaws.com/photos/3963364/2011_GNRS-315_detail.jpg! this bunch is hard to please....the winner had some traditional style(60's wheel and tire combo, black paint) NO BILLET, no excessive chrome, and a bitchin' stance. Not to bad in my book considering some recent choices!!!!
I thought that car was pretty nice. NOT my pick,but it wasn't OVER THE TOP,like in the past years. The thing that gets me is, it didn't have some six-figure display!
No obnoxious 22" billet wheels and rubber band tires.....a major step in the right direction!
Very nice car, good look and quality
Nice street rod!
Well it is a step in the right direction as it appears that it could be driven outside of not having headlights visible to the naked eye. But it doesn't pop for this old rodder and would be just one of a herd of nice black roadsters at a lot of bigger outdoor events.
That's not to say that I wouldn't drive the wheels off it an love every second of it along the way though.
But it's just possibly the sa^^e old thing that black cars just don't usually pop and knock us on our collective butts in photos especially under lights in a big building. No doubt the fit and finish is top rate.
I think you really have to look very closely at the car to see why it won and it was not spinning around on a roulette wheel either, don't know how that one won that year.
I'd bet there are a lot of pissed off rich guys this morning. Hahaha
Nice subtle ride.
It's quite modest and not over the top. When was the last AMBR you could just use daily and take to shows? This looks like a well made, well preportioned, everyday rod. This may, hopefully, be the end of donk wheeled rods and may pave the way for more restraint.
Rods not Rice.
