Lets see, where did I put that Redline wheel/axle wrench?

used mine... snapped the ball off the axle end on a hot heap... go '31 woody go !

If I put a car back together without messing with it, will that be a modded car, or will I be able to use it? J.B. Welded? That big ol T Bird was painted back in the 60's with a brush. legal?

I'd say try to find a car that is still together/original -you have plenty of time.

the new West Coast version where the Burn Out Esses would be at the end of the track as opposed to the beginning.

Warning! Something to keep in mind racers: you want your car to be somewhat fast even though it's a beater, but if it's too fast, it just might wipe out at the end of the track here at the Washington Burnout!!

Looking through my cars today, I determined that the vast majority of my original Redlines are in too good of shape to be considered beaters. I will be shopping for my beater online.

If you'd like to see a few pics of my cars...

Jim, When I got into collecting....I swore that I'd never get sucked into "redlines" but I'd stick with the cars I knew growing up...blackwall hong kong base cars...Now I'm all over the place searching and researching for redlines.....totally blowing my budget.


Thanks! there are some pretty cool cars out there.

My first Redline...$.3.40....Beat enough for you? does not roll anywhere close to straight...I'm hoping I can tweak the axles without damaging them further....

This series sounds awesome!! We've got lots of beaten--and probably REbeaten--Redlines that we bought while trying to get a good one (which we finally did). Anyway, there's just one thing I don't get: why does it stop at 1971? That doesn't make sense. Take the Side Kicks, for example--they're as original as it gets if you ask me, and they were (according to the chart posted) made later than 1971. Also, if you want a reference, the local die cast clubs allow any original Redline in their Redline Classes. We've got others, but I just wish I could enter my Side Kick.
And one last thing: we've tested them all. If we just go by memory of which are faster (and counter trials) and don't test them again, will that be good enough?

Geez, not again!

blah, blah, blah - why does it stop at 1971? - blah, blah, blah


JDC did have a rule discussion thread before starting this thread.
If you'd like to start a race with your own set of rules please feel free to do so.

re-read past posts... there was a major wheel to axle change in '71... that's when the hubs doubled in size, after that they just painted a red stripe onto a basic wheel/black wall, they had a straight axle with the axle ends showing through the wheel... example ; "superfine turbine" had '71 to '73 re-moveable wheels up front, '73 to '75 through axle, painted on red line rears stock....
.
... side-kick is one of the heaviest hot wheels out there, well over 60 grams...

I noticed the wheels difference, but they're still Redlines. If JDC doesn't want them, I won't send them (you can stop looking over your glasses and tapping your rulebook now, Mr. Moderator Carl) I just don't understand why people don't think they're original. They're metal-base, they're from the early '70s, and they've got red lines (which I'm starting to get the feeling must have magically appeared on the older Redlines ).
Now again, for the ones we have that do qualify--is all right that we've previously tested them?

We would not test the cars beyond a roll test for surprising results

OK, looks like the "Big Bird" tested to be the fastest of the bunch. The Mustang and the Nomad 2nd within a bumper of each other but the Bird still ahead by a fender on a roll test.

Attention racers!!! If you are still searching for beater Redlines check ebay. type "Sunday Sloppies" in the search window......

HOW TO FIND AN OLD REDLINE HOT WHEEL FOR THIS EVENT

I've started another thread to help anyone who is having any trouble finding a car for this event.
http://www.redlinederby.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1477&p=20691#p20691

I am so in on this. Gives me a chance to buy my first redline! Everlings Authentic Performance is in!

This showed up in the mail today...$6.00. When rolled it will make a full circle..lol...I'm hoping to straighen the axles and remove the stripe someone added. I'll need to weigh it, if I can get it to roll straight....maybe? Not sure it's beat enough. But I like it and it will stay in the collection.

I've got my eyes on a few cars over at eBay.
Hopefully no RLDers are bidding against each other!

wonder if 442 could edit page 1 this topic with the redline car's name and color next to the team name... ?
I will let him know as they arrive...
I sent my redline entry to 442 with his C n' R returns... duh !... hope he can mail it here with his burnout entry...

I think it was "wild willys" that was selling these for $4.00...careful, axles are of a very thin wire gauge... all the plastic parts are 40 years old and are brittle...
I recommend that you use this tool as an anchor and apply force against it instead of trying to twist the axle with the slotted end of the tool...[broke a python and hot heap axle learning this] ;Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox



That's a good looking redline Traction. Sweet find for only $6
I realize it isn't easy to find a beat up car that still has good axles, but I think everybody should be able to find one that looks worn and still rolls fairly well.

I just ran across this DEMON in a "'32 ford" jammer case...you can see where I had touched it up with a flat black [roof], and a red sharpie years ago... rolls fairly straight !
33.9 GRAMS... lower center of gravity than the '31 woody...[url=s1210.photobucket.com/user/model40fan/media/8%2011%20FINALS%20ROBBERS/demon94005_zps0c3d2cbe.jpg.html]Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox[/ur

bad roof insert, looks worse in hand

I was surprised at that last note--after everything I've seen on eBay and The Toy Peddler, I never thought I'd see somebody trying to better it looks in person!

I just won my racer on eBay!

Any hints? I'm interested in seeing what everyone picks.....so many cool old rides out there.

Just won this beater on eBay. If it rolls fairly well, it's gonna be my entry.

WHAT'S YOUR NO-MAD WEIGH ?... PERFECT PATINA

sweet Nomad......looks pretty straight. Flower power!

4 for $15 now just gotta roll em


4 for $15 now just gotta race em

Looks like a good set of early redlines there.

***JUST A REMINDER FOR EVERYONE. Something I don't believe everyone caught: In the rules above, I asked that...
"We would not test the cars beyond a roll test for surprising results"
So go with the car that rolls the best/straightest

er yeah I meant roll them.....

just won a police 442, pointed helmet red baron, topless sand crab, scruffy paddy wagon, and a no interior or glass hot heap...
my winning bid $10 free shipping...but for the C to C gig i'm still going with the red DEMON !Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

photo bucket has a setting option... sand crab with bone shaker's engine and interior... trying it now ;Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox
seemed to work... set the thing at 640, click save and then click save again !...it won't change, existing photos only new...

There will be prizes for the top three finishers. I will be making a small custom trophy for first place, second and third place will each receive one of Smitty's sweet custom Redlines. BEST BEATER.

wow, the cars look better here than in my hand !... go 442 go !

careful, there are some '73 hot wheels redlines called "Revvers", look like regular early redlines but are elastic band powered 1/64 hot wheels...
i ordered a Haulin' Horses... kind of a model T panel...want the body n' base for a future hot rod... pic next week...unless someone snags a pic from ebay...

So are we numbering our own cars this series?

So are we numbering our own cars this series?

First stop is at Smitty's track, so I believe he will be doing the numbering.

I have no problem putting individual favorite #s on the cars....
my problem is getting the right # on the right car...
I am not going to re-read the whole topic to find who want's what #...
maybe 442 can edit the first comment, page 1 on this topic, [already has an entry list], with # requests...
he listing the team's car #s as you let him know what you want...
first posted - first served... I have #1 to #99... let him know your favorites are.

Jim and Smitty, I'll take whatever number is assigned. The number won't make it go any faster......unless you guys know something I don't..."

In the #s thread there was already a spreadsheet with 'em. Here it is:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Api6wW0O5DI3dHZyM0lrYm1DSHA3RlAwMTVMRU9xV1E&usp=sharing#gid=0

Traction Event even picked him out some numbers

Traction Event even picked him out some numbers

Only because if this comes to pass I did not want to be stuck with 385, 127, or 1008.

Okay, we only need to pick one number for this series as there will only be one car entered per racer.
I'm going to enter the first number from Brian's RDR Mail-In sheet for each entrant.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Api6wW0O5DI3dHZyM0lrYm1DSHA3RlAwMTVMRU9xV1E&usp=sharing#gid=0

I've assigned numbers to every entrant from the RDR Mail-In Team numbers sheet. See page 1.

Cliffordshaw/rally case racing will take 34 and 65. Not a problem if you need to change those for any reason.

the sloppies will sport their sloppy jalopies team sticker...

I Recently Purchased A Car For this Event But Somehow Pay Pal Denied My Payment Or My Bank Denied The tranSaction So It Looks Like Im Out Of This One

I have a few, and am hosting the first gig... wanna borrow a '70 Paddy Wagon ?
...
when I pulled the paddy wagon out of the re-useable blister I noticed it is a '73 not a '70... found a nasty 1968 '31 woodie ;

rolls ok on the coffee table...

Sure Smitty If You Dont Mind. Thanks!

Sorry Everlings, I somehow forgot to add you to the list of entrants. You're now on the list my friend! #11

I haven't been on much lately but I thought for sure I signed up for this but I guess not. Is the field full or can I still get in?

I haven't been on much lately but I thought for sure I signed up for this but I guess not. Is the field full or can I still get in?

I did have you signed up, but removed your name from the list because I couldn't find a post from you in this thread. Must have been in the original 'idea' thread. You're definitely IN!! What number would you like for your car? Check page one to see which numbers are already taken.

This is gonna be fun. I'm happy to be here. This is cool.....

Well I have a few cars that roll fairly straight...not sure what to send in...I think I'm gonna weigh them and decide what goes into battle. this is gonna be cool.

Nightstalker ~What happened to its paint?

might be a shoe in for the most beat points? .... Looking good Nighstalker

Nightstalker ~What happened to its paint?

Some kid (me) Beat the hell outta it so he (the kid) brush painted it with model primer gray paint & beat it up again. I think the hood was black marker. The Bird was green.....I think.

I like this, a stock "blackwall" race would be cool!!! PM me with your ideas on this one or start a new thread.

I like this, a stock "blackwall" race would be cool!!!

Agreed.

I've always thought it would be cool to have an "All Ultra Hots" race. The Ultra Hot wheels that were really ugly and used a lot on everything it seems.

"Originally for the Ultra Hots series in the mid-80's, but later used on other cars until 1995. Recently re-introduced on several castings in the "Hot Ones" line.(2011-2012)".

A Noodlehead for under $20 bucks huh? That things got to be beat!

we have 6 entries here... race is the 10th... go post office go !... noodlehead weighs a ton !


A Noodlehead for under $20 bucks huh? That things got to be beat!

It made it in at under $20, thanks to the 'not including shipping' rule!
The ebay listing said it "rolls pretty straight". HA! . . . not on my coffee table, I think it does now though.

Here's the ad:

Looks pretty fresh, good paint. Does look heavy......

Good lookin' redline Carl. Amazing deal at under $20. That's awesome that we're going to have a good mix of old redlines in this race -can't wait to run 'em on my new burnout track!

It's beautiful!
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox
And H E A V Y !

it's here, and it's heavy, and it's coffee table tested [passed]... thanks for the extras carl...
... that's seven cars so far... got 10 days left, get hunting !

Smitty, got my Pit Crew car in the mail today. PO says it will be delivered on Monday. We're pretty close but I'd bet on Tuesday.

I love this race idea...I'm thinking of doing this race maybe in December at our monthly Hot Wheels Race. I came across a car yesterday that looked sooooo cool, should have gotten it...had a busted windshield, chipped paint a real junk yard find...but would have been the cool "Beater Car" to race. I might go back today and get it...if so, I'll post some pics later.

Preacher

Smitty and I have decided to push out the start date for this event one week for two reasons. First, we have another race gig happening November 10th (Pickup Pavement Pounders), and second Smitty's only received 6 cars so far for this race and we want to give our entrants a bit more time to send in the beaters.
I'll change the dates in the first post.
.....Let's get them beaters boxed up and shipped out to Maine!!!......

Glad to hear I've got another week...anyway, I intend to send out the McLaren this afternoon.
Note: due to not having a back hood/trunk thing, the McLaren has its number down in with the engine. I didn't want to put it on the windshield, as that just wouldn't seem natural (the driver needs to at least be able to SEE if he's gonna drive this piece of crap...).

got a Poodlehead from south Texas and a "Yikes" from Dad Be Good !... they fill an 8 car bracket... hello 442, TLD, ENFORCEMENT, STROLLER ? ... DUE DATE - SATURDAY 11/ 16TH ...ANY OTHER RACERS WANT IN... GET LOOKING...
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Milton Fox Racing has found a candidate!

I updated our race numbers to "62" and "61" in the database for the team. (for some reason I thought one of those numbers was already taken)

Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox


Smitty, is that rear wheel/axle on the driver's side bent? Did it get there ok or was the box banged up? Just curious 'cause I don't remember seeing it looking like that. Are you allowed to table top roll it? If not don't worry about it.

parcel entact...
the "white thing ?" rolls straight... but like my DEMON, and most redlines I have coffee table rolled, there was a slight resemblance to a wet dog shaking dry... by track's end these redlines may look like Bullwinkle's side-kick...a little sqourlee !

Jeez! That Noodlehead actually looks NICE!

The three Washington entries (Stroller, Delta and JDC) went out yesterday. Should be there by the end of the week.

AS SOON AS ALL THE ENTRIES ARRIVE IN MAINE, AND SMITTY'S ABLE TO POST A PHOTOS OF EACH BEATER, I'LL BE PRIVATE MESSAGING ALL ENTRANTS SO THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE TOP 5 BEATERS (WHICH CARS LOOK THE MOST BEATEN). CAR WITH THE MOST VOTES GETS 5 EXTRA POINTS, SECOND MOST VOTES GETS 4 EXTRA POINTS AND SO ON. THESE POINTS WILL BE ADDED TO THE POINTS SCORED IN BOTH RACES.

Jeez! That Noodlehead actually looks NICE!

It is photogenic!
Looks a lot worse in person. The underside looks like it sat in salt water or something.

an ebay seller would call carl's doodlehead "near mint"... priced accordingly

You're not helping here Schmitty

Didn't know you wanted help... i'ld a sent you a batch of special dry lube... [powdered black beauty] HAR, HAR, HAR !
...
got the 3 westies today from 442, that's 11 cars in the box... still time...


Looks like one of my early modifications!

Is "wild willys" a member or an internet vendor. I have an axle tool somewhere, but havent unearthed it yet. Would be interested in obtaining this version and instruction/overview of the different slots. Thanks in advance!

Looks like something that would win the quarter-finals at the RIHWC, if you straightened that front left wheel a bit! I get the feeling my only hope is for beat points.

Check epay under "brightvision" they sell a similar tool to straighten things out.

Thanks for the epay referral. I have the flat metal tool currently offered up for sale or at least one very similiar to it somewhere around here - still digging for it. I have about a dozen Redlines MIA and a bunch of matchbox cars to find yet!

Does anyone know what the other slots and end are for on the one above - with the key ring holder? I am guessing different year axles and wheel construction...

got FOTF's redline today, rolls, missing a few parts but hey...

Cool. If it still rolls--without too much suffering--it sounds good enough.

Milton Fox Racing had our entry delivered for shipping this morning by our new flat bed! Lady at the Post Office says it will be there on Tuesday due to the Monday Holiday. GO USPS!

Bring on the racing!!!! or the post carrier...then racing....

just bills... no redlines... we race on !.. half fast and dadvbal have moved on to round 2...

Good luck TE! Does anyone have a tear off I can borrow?

i'll bite, what's a tear off ?

Tear offs are the clear plastic sheets they put on windshields (NASCAR and some sports car racing series) and visors (F1 and Indy). Sometime they are tinted for the visor. There is a tag on one corner that lets one guy pull the top layer off during pit stops to "clean" the windshield.

That open hole in the windshield may create to much drag!!!

HEY . . . what's up with that bracket!
I don't get to race Schmitty or JDC first round.

Good luck TE! Does anyone have a tear off I can borrow?

Yeah

Nice job, Carl! That's a sweet ride you've got there!

Well I think I had an ok showing...but Carl rose to the top...great racing all. Thanks for hosting Smitty.

Smitty can you show the bracket?

also tough to pick the beat rides....they all have some miles on them...

Congrats to both Carl the Winner and Smitty the Presenter good job all...

bracket is messy, should have set up a desk....I feel that 442 takes better pix, lets vote on beatness at that heet...
also... 11 runs against traction event... I was going to throw in the towel at 12... I got lucky coming out of the 11th burnout as when he beat me, he beat me good !... great race TE...Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Okay guys, I'll open up the voting until the beginning of the final race in Bellingham next Sunday. As soon as the cars get to me, I'll post individual picks of each car so you all can get a real good look at the beaters. Those of you that have already sent in your votes can change your votes if you'd like when you see the new pics.

Great looking car Carl, not too surprised that it won


What she lacks in beauty she makes up in weight!

OKAY MEN, THIS IS GOING TO BE INTERESTING. I'M COMPLETELY SERIOUS WHEN I SAY THAT THIS IS ANYONE'S RACE. BETWEEN POINTS FOR BEST (WORST LOOKING) BEATERS AND THIS EVIL DEVICE SMITTY SENT ME, ANYONE CAN CLAIM TOP SPOT ON THE PODIUM AFTER THIS IS ALL SAID AND DONE.

REMEMBER AS I SAID BEFORE THESE BURNOUT ESSES WILL BE AT THE END OF MY 22+ FOOT TRACK. IF A CAR COMES IN TOO HOT, IT'S VERY LIKELY IT WILL EAT IT BEFORE IT MAKES THE FINISH LINE. I REALLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW THE CARS WILL REACT TO THIS MEAN FINISH AS I HAVE NEVER RUN THIS SET UP BEFORE.


NEXT UP WILL BE MY INDIVIDUAL BEATER PHOTOS FOR VOTING
AND THEN SUNDAY MORNING I'LL POST THOSE POINTS AND THEN THE FINAL BEATER BURNOUT SPECTACULAR!!!

I WENT WITH DEMON BECAUSE OF IT'S LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY, HOPING IT WILL STAY ON THE TRACK IN BELLIN'AM...SHIP LUCK IT DID OK HERE IN THE EAST...
NOW AS FOR BIG HEAVY CARL, I SEE STROODLEHEAD IN THE LEAD, THEN IN THE WEEDS...
I SUSPECT TE's #5 MAY BE STAYING ON THE TRACK OUT WEST...

That IS evil! I like it!

HERE ARE THE FIRST ROUND MATCH UPS. THEY ARE SEEDED BY CURRENT STANDINGS.

should the cars that drew byes run solo ? ... they have to stay on the track to earn their bye run ...442's call...

Not a bad idea Smitty, but you and Carl earned your byes by going 1-2 in Maine.

all we have to do is finish... not to beat anyone else...

Hi JDC,

on the bracket, Weber cabin's car and rally case's cars are switched. Weber cabin should be mark IV, rally case is the nitty gritty kitty.
Looking forward to round 2!

* the pretty vote [if there is one] goes to Beaumont's very well fed "POODLE HEAD"...


I voted the way!!!

Well i think JDC got my good side...lol. Some very beat looking racers, tough decisions. Looks like someone used Milton's cars for an ashtray.

Can't wait to see who can hold on to the track today....Fast cars beware...sharp curves ahead.

RACE 'EM ALL THE WAY... TO DEAD MAN'S CURVE !... GO 442 GO !

RACING IS NOW COMPLETE. THIS WAS BY FAR THE MOST ACTION PACKED EXCITING EVENT I'VE HELD! LOTS OF ACTION TO REPORT.
NOW I JUST HAVE TO TYPE UP THE SUMMARY, POST THE PICS, AND CROWN THE BEATER CHAMP.

ALL RIGHT!!!! I got first-place in the Beater portion of the points!

This has got to be the most amusing race, series, and reporting of any diecast racing! Congrats to the fastest Beaters/Survivors/Track Handlers, and GREAT job to JDC on his round of racing! Can't wait for another series like this!

JDC, great stuff indeed sir.....great coverage... And congrats to the winners. I got revenge on Smitty...but Lola was too fast for her own good...not bad racing for a bunch 40 plus race cars.

Never finished a race upside down before. Good thing I was wearing my neck brace............

Congratulations to Nightstalker on the overall win! And thanks to our hosts on both coasts!!!

Webber Cabin wins, very long distance, congrats...
also, the Stawka rocks...
thanks 442, well done...
does Carl's stroodle heads still look so good after his "roof riding"...didn't make a difference with the Demon...

All I can say is....WOW!! Crossing the finishing line sideways for most of the heats, coming in 2nd racing alone is a biggie for "Nightstalker Racing" but to be bumped into first for being Ugly is just a thrill!!!!
The "Big Ugly Bird" waited about 45 years to win this one. I am Honored!!

I COOK THE MEAT FOR OUR FAMILY HOLIDAY FEASTS... STARTED WITH A FREE GENERAL ELECTRIC XMAS HAM.. GIRLS AT WORK SAID BASTE IT IN GINGER ALE... DIDN'T HAVE ANY... BASTED WITH DR. PEPER... WELL I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, I HAVE SINSE BEEN HIRED TO COOK 'EM ...

LATER INTRODUCE HIM AT THE TABLE AS "DR. THUNDERBIRD" !
...HAPPY THANKSGIVING ALL ... DRIVE SAFE...

Carl definitely had the fastest car going -that Noodlehead was FAST!!! It rolled so well, I was even having a tough time keeping it on the mirror for the group photo. There were quite a few impressively fast old redlines, but those wicked esses kept the race open for even the most mediocre beaters.

and congrats to the beatest beater - FOTF

WHO WILL SURVIVE THE ESSES???
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

JDC,

Great hosting, pics, and race reporting. I'll sum it all up and send it to cooper/mcjiggles/weber cabin racing in Brazil. he'll get a kick out of it. This was a fantastic event, love to see the old redlines get respect. with your chrome heart shining in the sun, long may you run!

Congrats to Weber Cabin for winning the Washington segment and to Nightstalker for taking the overall championship! Great reporting jobs by JDC and Smitty! I'm super happy to see my Crew Car run so well.

Speaking of my car, I can't remember is I sent the return money with my car to Smitty. If Smitty or JDC can post and let me know I'll get it in the mail if I didn't send it.

I received return money from Dadvbal, Milton Fox, Traction Event and Nightstalker.

Anyone else that would like their car returned can send the $3.00 to my home address or my Paypal account (PM me for that info.)

I just sent monies via paypal.
Gotta' get that beauty back!

Carl--would you consider selling the Streudeller? (Or would JDC consider taking a bribe to get it mixed up with the McLaren? )

Has anyone heard anything from Everlings? He was all set to be in this race and then disappeared. I sent him a PM at the beginning of this month but never heard back.

I haven't.

hope all is ok !... go kharv go !

Finally got the "Results History" up to date.

Been kinda busy since the race. I'll try and get the cars and prizes to their owners by the end of next week.

How long ago was those beaters sent back, I'm still lookin' for the T Bird.

Super busy with the holidays. Going to try to get the packages to the post office Monday.

No pressure ment to be applied, I thought they went out and maybe lost in the holiday shuffle. After 46 years I really don't wanna lose it. New Years is next , right?

THAT'S an "OLD" friend you have there STAWKA ....NEW YEARS "is" next... OAL, AYNG, ZIME...

All cars are now on their way home.

Got mine today , thank you sir.

Got mine today , thank you sir.

Same here.....thanks !!

Our entry arrived today as well and won its welcome home race!

The Red Beauty returned yesterday! Thanks, JDC! Can't say it'll be winning many races around the house, but maybe a few car shows.

the prizes and beaters arrived from the other coast... thanks 442...


Tha "Big Ol' Beautiful Dirty Bird" Has flown home. Thanks 442, be seein' ya on the line.


So......Who won the cool cars?

Weber Cabin and Half Fast for getting 2nd and 3rd place.

I sent the photo of the prize cars to Cooper in Brazil and informed him that he had won Smitty's custom chrome Python and his reply was "NICE!"

thanks Smitty for such a cool, handmade prize. with me limited to pulling entries from his small collection of previous mods for races in the next 18 months, you may be competing against that Python any day!

I DON'T TEST, SO I MAY GET A LOOK AT "SNAKE BITES" TAIL LIGHT...

glad he likes it...
so much so, I sent a parcel with an FTE racer "bonnie n clyde", and an FTE "project straight pipes" to Canton to help keep the stable full...
.... go jiggy go ...

He will LOVE that. You are a good friend Smitty. I'll let you know what he says about them.

Weber Cabin and Half Fast for getting 2nd and 3rd place.

Probably me, but I don't understand. Did 2nd place runner and overall points winner win anything? Besides braggin' rights.

As the overall Beater Burnout Coast-to-Coast Winner, you're going to get a small JDC442 Custom Display trophy to show off your Beater T-Bird.
Sorry Kory, I could have sworn I sent you a message. Been super busy lately and haven't been able to get into the wood shop.
I promise it will be worth the wait.

I still can't believe I'm not getting a five-foot trophy for having the most beat-up car...

Post some pictures when you get Stawka's trophy finished!

I will also post pics with the Bird in place with pride.

That's what a 40 year old Testors primer gray brush job looks like after a lotta bangin' in the shoe box.

the BIRD has the look of having been perched on a headstone since HENRY FORD bought LINCOLN... perfect patina !
not just a trophy... could be a statue...GO STAWKA GO !

CONGRATS AGAIN NIGHTSTALKER!!!

Sorry about the delay. Hope you enjoy it!

nice work 442... congrats stawka !

Looks great and worth the wait. Will post pics when it arrives with the Big Ugly Bird perched on top forevermore. I saw a flat black bird on E Bay and almost bid on it. think it sold for about $3.75 + shipping.

NIIIICE! It'll look good with the champ perched atop it.

It seems to move around a lot as well.
