10 Years of Cannonball Run CBP

Recommended Posts

10-years ago, Jantrix (Rob Mattis) started the community build project that invites racers to build cars for a cross country race that pays homage to Brock Yates' Cannonball-Baker Sea to Shining Sea Memorial Trophy Dash and welcomes the creativity of the Cannonball Run movies. It's followed by a poll which represents "the race" with forum voters determining who wins. It started on the Scale Auto forum, but when that site no longer supported the needs of this CBP, it found a welcoming home here at MCM forum. 

Before we end 2017, I'm posting photos of all the finishers from all years. I was able to salvage most photos, but due to the sands of time and the infernal mooks at Photobucket, I couldn't gather them all. Some archive photos are low resolution. If you see a crappy, pixilated pic of your model, please PM me a nice photo and I'll swap it out.

Cannonball 2018, (sub-theme Inline Engines) will begin soon in the Community section.

Ok, I'm going to be the cranky old guy here and point something out.  It would be a good thing to know the actual history of the 1:1 event so here it is.  Although Brock Yates and Car and Driver were behind the whole shebang, the true name of the event was The Cannonball Baker Sea to Sea Memorial Trophy Dash.  It was held first in 1971 and had very humble beginnings.  All the movies and other stuff that came after did not do justice to what amounted to a bunch of gear-head anarchists sitting around and  more than likely alcohol was involved, having a discussion about what the best car and best route to drive from New York to California was.  Remember, this was pre GPS days when a good map and some knowledge was king.  For those who are interested, here from the dusty archives it the C&D article of the original run. https://www.caranddriver.com/features/the-cannonball-baker-sea-to-shining-sea-memorial-trophy-dash-archived-feature.  Incidentally the original race had only 9 participants of which there was a Ferrari Daytona(winner) , MGB-GT, AMC AMX, several vans and a motorhome(last place).

Thanks Rob, it was fun. I corrected some factual errors, feel welcome to call out any errors or add anything you see that preserves the historical integrity.
