    Bill Hines denied entry with Buddha Bugy and Lil Bat to LB motorama after 8 hours they accepted the Buddha Bugy thanks to Jack Walker....The Lil Bat was turned away 2 hours later because the car didnt meet the criteria for trace edwards...Bill Hines will not be siging autographs because of actions taken by car show management...The circus is more organized then this car show....

    What's the other side of this story? This side, the other side, and the truth usually falls in the middle somewhere.

    That said, much respect to Mr. Hines.

    I dunno what that red car is supposed to be, but it's hideous.

    He won't sign autographs? Why? Why punish his own fans? Weirdness.
     
  7. Uhm,

    Taken directly from the LB Motorama website.

    I suspect that the red "lil bat" is slightly newer than the cutoff year.

    Can the rest of the villagers put down the pitchforks and torches now? Are we still forming a mob to kill the monster?
     
  9. In my humble opinion Bill Hines is a living legion and should be treated as one,but then again I don't make the rules.

    It's not a very good commentary on the promoter. HRP

    "...The circus is more organized then this car show...." quote

    Apparantly, you're incorrect.
    Proof is that the late-model "lil bat" was denied entry. Rules clearly stated, organized.<!-- / message --><!-- attachments -->

    Is this the same car show promoter who was at the GNRS putting flyers for his show in the cars on display?
    And wasn,t he asked to leave?

    Aren't cars accepted or rejected months ahead of time for an indoor event? or at least a week or two??
     
  17. Not only is Bill Hines a legion, he's also a legend :D. I'm guessing the promoters weren't expecting him to show up with that late model POS. That is an insult to the original L'il Bat.
     
  18. HRP - So are you going to speak ill of Bill Rhodes & Randy Nash when you show up in your '54 Ranch Wagon to the "ALL DEUCES RUN" ... and they turn you away? :rolleyes:

    Bill Hines is a legend, but the red car is ugly and too new per the rules anyways. I personally wish guys like Hines and Barris would only do pre-60's cars, because none of these newer vehicles ever look good with traditional styling cues applied.
     
  21. I'm just guessing that there was some sort of phone conversation and Bill said he was going to bring L'il Bat. The promoters were thinking this...

    So was it then that Bill said he could bring 'Lil Bat', the promoter thought 'The Lil Bat'. Bill shows up with this new variant and is denied entry?

    Sounds more plausible.
