Funny Car Show story

Last night I took our 49 Pontiac Woodie wagon that we just finished to a local car show, I let my wife(who looked hot as hell driving it) drive the Camaro, just to support the show, plus she's been bugging me to drive it. Ended up being three Camaros there,wierd at a small town car show, A Yellow LT, a SS/RS Inferno orange, no stripes, and my car. I parked next to my wife in the Woodie. They started calling off numbers at the end of the night, there was over 100 cars there, some pretty nice stuff. I wasnt even paying attention, and someone said, they just called your name, thought I won a door prize or something, make a long story short, they were announcing first place, I thought, Wow, the Woodie took first place...Cool...Well...as I went up to get the award, the guy says, Nice Camaro by the way...holy crap the darn Camaro took first....Man there were alot of dirty looks coming my way, I thought, Camaros nice, but I sure dont deserve a 1st place, turns out they let all the people there vote, and it must have been alot of younger kids, so they picked the Camaro. Thought that was kinda funny......

I've seen the picture section and that post, it's a very nicely done wagon. Amazing what kind of reaction these Camaros bring, well done I say

Little confused, I did attach the link to the photobucket album with pictures of the Woodie and other cars we've built, I think you misunderstood me, no biggy, since I'm a nice guy and love to show off pics of the cars, I resized three of them and I'll post them here, hope you all like them. Two of them were taken over vacation at OCC.
