Okay, how about a little bit of humor mixed in. I got this one a few years back. The funny part is that the guy who made this was a school teacher.............and didn't notice the error til the crowd broke up with laughter.
^^^^ haha. sucks for him, but a good story
Got this on my 50's anniversary
Never seen this kind of stuff.
You should get out more Kirk?
Great work !
Heres a couple I did for our show in 2009...
Host Club Pick trophies I did for the 2011 and 2012 NorCal KnockOut shows and a Knockout Custom group effort for the 2010 NCKO...
A few more...
Last year at the Okie Twist Off.
Nice work guys!
Here are a few I made last week. The brake pedal was later striped and said "show stopper" on it
I like the show stopper ^^^^
Ooo! Artsy fartsy. I like it. A lot of good ideas here.
Just made this tonight for a possible best 4 spd trophy at the Gold Cup, still working on a worthy base
Nice work !
for a little local car cruise at my buddys bar this weekend
Heres some from the Open Wheel Gang picnic near Batavia NY a couple weeks ago.I have received a bunch of these over the last few years and they are as much fun to make as get.Most of us hotrod guys up in my neck of the woods are really into this brand of "doorprize"
We are gonna have a trophy fabrication day or two at the Old Soul Speed shop when the cold weather hits.
100 times better than that plastic crap....
Again, nice work!
OT, but I just sent these off to Utah for the Utah High School Cycling League. All bicycle parts.
Once I have more car parts I'll start doing more car show trophies.
Looks good to me.
..one more before I go.
There are a lot of very cool ideas in this thread! It amazes me the number of hours that go into some of these. I know on our own trophy builds, we have joked that the "Best of Show" trophy is valued at several thousand dollars based on 50 hrs or so and shop labor!
I am also amazed that some of these can be picked up by one person (maybe they can't!)
Here is one of three that I built for the 1st Annual Motor Mania. I just have to ad the engraved plates. Stay tuned for the pix of the 2013 GNRS Suede Place trophy. This thing is going to be the best one yet.
