A Unique modeling challenge

Trucks must be believable Euro or American semis with deisel or gas engines, start with a stock frame and body, single or tandem axles. Modifications are legal as are wings. Turbos ans superchargers are also legal.
We are hoping that Gregg and Jairus will form tha nucleus of tha Judges, perhaps Art and a few more Oldtimers.....no trophies...just Bragging Rights.......whose got real creative juices? Anyone game for a contest that no-one has ever entered before?
In other words, an Unlimited Class of truck racers capable of racing at Daytona, Dover(where they already race) or at Watkins Glen. Yall got tha stuff to compete?
Have an opinion?

And yu are correct Jairus, semi-pro, no trophies, no prizes--just bragging rights for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places and tha also-rans. To me modeling is about modifying, building dreams and such and since I have nevah even built a semi, much less a racing semi-truck, this oughta get some creative juices flowing like Niagra Falls and,of course, all builders are invited.
Oh yeah, Ken was telling me that some of these big rig models are kinda expensive....so we won't limit tha scales, but I would think that 1/64th scale might ruin one's eyes building something that small. But I guess we could give Gregg and Jairus some LARGE magnifying glasses.
All suggestions will be considered for inclusion. We have until Feb. '07 to finalize tha Rules of Engagement.
