Mike, You're absolutely right, we are lucky to be in the middle of the action here. Meeting Gene Winfield was great and having him participate was quite a treat. As we were loading up, I got to have a very quick chat with Chip Foose as well.
The second edition of the LA Roadster Show Model Car Event is in the books and was a great success! Thanks to all the fantastic builders that came out to the show and wowed the public, hot rod industry insiders, and the LA Roadsters members themselves. We filled the tables to capacity with some of the highest quality models you will find anywhere. We even got some pillars of the hot rodding community to participate, including the legendary Gene Winfield! While everyone was a winner that showed up, here are the results of the people’s choice and special awards that were available to a select few: Top 5 People’s Choice, in no particular order- Jim Bunch ’67 Mustang Pro Mod Michael Apodaca ’59 Chevy John Teresi Carl Casper Phone Booth Mark Killingsworth Tommy Ivo Dodge Dart Ken Cornett ’31 Ford Truck Best Engine, selected by Mike Herman of H&H Flatheads: Ron Ramsey ’32 Sedan Street Rod Best Paint, selected by Gene Winfield: John Teresi Freak Show Best Roadster, selected by LA Roadsters Club members: Charles Ruth ’37 Ford “Obnoxious” LA Roadster’s President’s Pick John Teresi P29 Roadster Very special thanks to Tamiya USA, Edelbrock, PJ1 and Pegasus Hobbies for supporting the show this year!
