    What a variety. If there isn't something you like here, you probably should get into something else! Thanks for taking the time.

  14. This isn't the 1st time I've had the pleasure of enjoying your efforts. Thank you very much. This year I feel like I really missed out by not being there. I haven't felt that way so much in the past. :)

    And the winner is? SAR in Portland built hat 2 mill ride. Not HAMB friendly...that doesn't seem to matter in the motor city. I heard the oil pan was 30k, I can build an entire car for that but it wouldn't win the Riddler!

    I heard some misfire about this year's winner right after it was presented. I say it won with what it takes which is talent, creativity, dedication, and a disciplined team of pros willing to go the distance. Funding be damned, that car was over the top in so many ways. The blown Ardun cpe was also over the top. Nice field of Great 8s and well earned wins for all of them.

    Good photos and coverage, but completely at odds with the ethos of this site.

    You sure you aren't confusing that with the Oscars last night? :D

    I know the interior man, Dan. I have talked to him about my interior plans. Mine is just a traditional style bench and maybe some map pockets in the doors and some trunk trim but that guy does have talent.

    The Riddler winner may not HAMB friendly but it is a tribute to SAR and Dan and other craftsmen that use this as a chance to showcase their skills and talents in front of the car world. I am going to have to attend that show one year to see these cars in person. Thanks for your PM updates too Highlander!.
