First Car Show with the 68
« on: September 28, 2012, 11:05:44 AM »
One of my local Mustang friends invited me to show my 68 Mustang at the local "All Ford Show" last weekend.  A number of people asked me who painted the car, where I got the chrome replated, and who helped with the restoration. I was very proud to tell people Charles Turner and Pete Morgan helped me through the restoration. Many of the locals flocked to the car to inspect the engine and undercarriage and were in awe of the details. I hope to enter an MCA show in the future.

Thanks for sharing.  Most folks don't see concours level cars at shows like that.  Good to know that there were some that appreciated the work... which Pete gets the most credit for.

Very nice! I hope I get to judge it some day. Not much writing on that judge sheet I bet. Marty

Thanks......I'm not sure about the Judge sheet at this show, I humbly accepted the "best in show" award although that was not my intention for showing the car. Alot of the locals had "heard" that I was restoring my parent's first car and they wanted to see how it turned out.
