    I wish I could have gotten pics of each and every car there. Heck I didn't even take one of mine! I hope somebody else did! This is definately one of the shows to put on the calender every year. The Chups do a great job.

    Billy and Larry, if you would have come to the show you could have checked out that bitchin' 3-window all day long. :)

    From what I know, it was driven to the show from Fort Worth, and is powered by a radical 4-71 blown 327. Rumor has it that it was just finished up by Chip Foose.


    From me and the rest of the guys, thanks to everyone that came to our show! It just keeps getting better every year...and I wouldn't be able to say that without all the great people that show up, both with and without cars.

    It had pin drive knock off wheels. I thought they were original Halibrand Indy wheels at first. However, they were sporting a small cast in "Foose Wheels". Hard to see but it was there.

    Also had a very nicely executed torsion bar front suspension.

    I'd park it in my garage.

    That was definitely my favorite car of the show, ( and it was another fantastic show thanks to the Chupacabras!) It is a very trick and understated new build. Did you notice the torsion bar suspension? Subtle rework of the hood and grill? The theme of the car was based around a vintage fender guitar speaker that he had in the trunk to house his battery, really cool details in and out of that car. I was surprised it did not get any sort of award, and it sounded as bad ass as it looked too.

    From what I heard, the car was built at Austin speed shop,finished and painted by foose.lots of cool details.

    I'm guessing,correct me,but it problay didn't Anything since a check book built it and not the owner? I'm pretty sure that's what this show,and site more less is about. no disrespect to anyone,amazing car,and if it wasn't for customers paying,most of us wouldn't even have cars ourselves

    Indeed. Patrick's killer stainless headers which exit thru the frame rails and Bleed's vintage fender amp interior are the highlights... IMO.

    Hope that cat cracked that baby open before the ice melted!
    I for one, am really proud of your club for coming to North Texas every year for the koolest show we have to offer.
    .....and appreciate all you do down south to make things fun for us when we come down there.
    Yay-Hoos Rock. IMO;)

    Troy cracked the longneck open as soon as his ass hit his chair. He just sat there staring at it saying " wow " for a good ten minutes.
    A big thank you to the Chubracabras for a hell of a great show.
    What was it 350 something cars? Almost time for a bigger place. Especialy with groups come from as far as Arizona.

    It was an awesome show!

    I made the trek from Indiana, well over 2000 mile round trip. We set up a vendor space with another fellow Hoosier. We did very well at the show and I will probably be making the trek down again next year! I had my wife man the booth for awhile and got a chance to walk around, there was some nice stuff there! A green 32 sedan is one I remember liking a lot...
