that's weird that in all this time this is the first time a lady has won... but i still don't quite get the concept of building a car solely for these types of shows. i guess i'd rather buy something and mod it, drive it and show it. but that's just me...

Those cars are stunning. Not my first choice from the 2010 show - but well deserving of top honors!

I'm generally against show cars that don't get driven.
I'm of the mindset that if you buy something that is meant to be used...then it should be used.

That's like Lone Watie thinking a piece of rock candy is "fer lookin through".
