MY VOTE IS FOR THIS SWEET RIDE!!!
There all winners no matter how the voting goes. but I have seen the build of the caddy from start to finish in person. The custom gets my vote this time...And believe it or not the caddy is a driver.
I have to agree that this is a tough one. I narrowed it down to three....then down to two. Rogers caddy and Bulls sedan. I love hotrods, I love kustoms. 1955 is my favorite year for cars, my all time favorite car is the 1955 chevy, my all time favorite caddy 1955 coupe DeVille. One of my favorite colors is purple and I like many shades of it. I've never had a "thing" for model A's let alone an A sedan until 333 Half Evil took me to his dads place to check out a 1929 model a "town delivery" that he and his dad put together. It was different, done up highboy style, "cycle" fenders on the front, stock rear fenders, no running boards, hot 406ci sbc. all home built and driven.
That car was scary fast, road as nice as any rod I'd ever been in, looked cool, and was scary fast!!! Needless to say that car really made a spot in my heart for the madel A's as a hotrod and the fact that those little sedans could be a really neat hotrod. So I guess I'm still stuck. I love the caddy, one of my favorite cars period. Rogers is definitely top notch for sure and the colors for me are spot on, and as far as caddy kustoms go it for me is the best one EVER built (my opinion). Bulls A sedan is an incredilble hotrod, looks like it's directly out of the late 40's or 50's for sure, stance, color, flattie, lakes, top chop, bumpers, etc. it has to be one of the best built model A sedans.....EVER(my opinion).
So how do I choose? What to me would make one or the other get my vote? I decided to read the build threads and see if something there hit home. Boy those are some build threads right there!! After reading both of them and trying to find something to make up my mind on who to vote for I finally found it. I'm not going to say who I voted for, but I am going to say all four choices are very worthy for sure. My top two, the caddy and 31 sedan are both very deserving to win in my mind. The story behind one of those two cars is the reason I voted for the one I did. Read the build threads, you will be able to figure it out. Congratulations to all the top four, they are great rides to say the least.
Thanks Razin Cain, this was one great poll and an incredible top four. Great Job.
After getting a pm request for my vote that included a link to this thread so I could vote for his car, I followed the link to check out the contest. I too wanted to check out the four contestants, read the build threads, check over pics, etc. After reading the build threads and reading some replies from the owners of these cars it was clear to me that there is one that deserves my vote. I too am not going to say who I voted for, but I will say it did not go to the person who asked for it, sorry.
The Caddy is quite a car!!!!
My vote is from the light blue A
This is just awesome again Thanks to all that entered...I wish I could have had everyone win.Thanks to everyone for voting and please continue to vote.If you didn't make the four this year we will be doing this again in 2013,our Suicide Awareness is far to important to stop.Please remember to Love like you have never Loved and show compassion for those who need us most.
I'm with you Dave...Man this is Tough!
Where can I find more pics of Rez's roadster?
If you look up picks from the Ink & Iron show in Ca.at the Queen Mary
Wait a great group of cars .... but I voted for Bull's sedan..... I love a sedan with fenders a flatie and white walls
Supprised the custom is bringing it home so far! Those are all really nice cars!
Looks like Bull32 is starting to make a run.
Man I haven't seen this thread until now.All the cars look great but Rogers Cadillac knocks it out of the park.
Merry Christmas everyone...your right David...Bull is coming up
all are winners but i had to vote for the caddy it,s a great build
This is the first I've heard of this award? It's an award to be given to a HAMBer at the roundup? I'm voting for my favorite now.
Definitely ALL prize winners, but the Caddy has the most metalworking ability proven beyond any reasonable doubt! AWESOME LINEUP
Makes me wish this was one of those places where we could vote early.... and often!

Bull..... Adam Bateman St.Michael MN. 31 Ford Tudor.
Tough Call, all 4 cars are bitchin' rides!
Bull's car. No doubt the coolest car in my opinion.
Bulls car, whats not to like.......... no valve covers!!!!!!!!
Thanks guys. Much appreciated!
For all those seeing this thread, be sure to check out Razin Cain's earlier thread with more details on his great cause: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=742929
Difficult decision, all are very beautiful, but the Bull 31 is what I appreciate most, because it looks like the thumbnails you do. Even the car looks like a drawing that Gary Art factory made​​.
All great but Caddy is my favorite. Just got me my own 55' and hopefully will be as cool as his.
Is it official Mark?
David.....Check out this thread.
