We were all relieved after weeks and months of day to day long hours of work. We went to compete for the America's Most Beautiful Roadster honors and after seeing the other cars in competition including the original Ala-Kart, Undisputed, Magnitude, and numerous other cars, we were intimidated but felt we were right in place among the best at the show.
Competing with a low budget and relying on creativity and imagination is not always easy but when the awards ceremony came and we were called for one of the "outstanding" awards in the AMBR class, all those months of hard work paid off. We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their help on this project and believing in us. We would also like to thank everyone who helped out on the car throughout the years we've been working on it and making it better with each thing we do to it. With one show under our belt and many more to go with much more driving ahead of us, we hope to see you at a show in the future!
