Well...as most of you know we did the Mustang Club of Americas Nationals.....

As usual...it was EXREMELY stressful, BUT , it was alot of fun! WhiteSnake could not be there but J took the Snake and we had the main BAR room going all weekend...and trust me! We needed those Margaritas to get thru the weekend!!!! :eek:

Well, after spending a day on my undercarriage, (It NEVER LOOKED BETTER) they did not judge them! :mad: I made them crawl thier ass under it anyways. But till I get my judging sheet, I will have not have any idea if I even got any points for it or not! :mad: I told them to look at Steve's too, but dont know if they did!

On Saturday, I heard a 'POP' when i was cleaning my interior...I ignored it...WELL.....when it came time to put up windows and such, I HAD NO POWER!!!!!!!! NO BATTERY, NO HORN, NO LIGHTS NOT NUTHING...I FREAKED OUT! It NEVER fails!!!!!!!!!!!

And THANK YOU to DARRELL for working so hard to try to get me going again! Looks like something just put a MAJOR draw on my battery, and it was wasted. The SVT people in the SVT trailer had a Quick Jump, and got me going. My friend Tim w/ the '69 Mach 1 let me use his gel cell while he took mine home to charge overnight. Needless to stay, I stayed stressed out the rest of the weekend, and just kept drinking the margaritas......

The major highlights for me is when Jim Silverman the Head MCA judge of the late models approached me to talk to me bout my car. We hung out alot over the weekend. He was VERY cool (and from Bawwwwston) lol ...and also when Austin Craig approached me, remembering when we met in '99 at FFW / Ennis, when I got featured on My Classic Car. I got to spend some time w/ him and Scott Hoag of TEAM MUSTANG, and that was just TOO COOL FOR ME!!! ;) I thourougly enjoyed swapping stories at midnight in the bar of all of our expieriences of getting tickets....I had many. And Austin Craig is prolly one of the most personable people I have EVER met!!! :thumbsup:

sooooooo.......... in the nutshell....here it is...
I myself, am looking forward to getting my judging sheet...I put myself in a tougher class on purpose because I WANTED my engine and undercarriage judged...they did neither in Daily Driven...and obviously, the daily driven miles and wear and tear did NOT make a diff. in the judging, but deservingly so...I KNEW I was gonna get the shaft on my paint, and my seats...hoping my new top and bumper might help and the other EXTRAS i made sure were perfect..but you can only do so much on a hard driven 114,200 mile car.....so considering that, I guess I'm happy? :yup:

Members in thier respective classes:

Darrell: Silver(you GOOO boy, and you dont even have tits...lol..sorry, couldn't resitst!) ;) (inside joke for some of us!) lol!

John and Barbara: GOLD....(VERY WELL DESERVED);) yalls car is SPOT ON!!!!!! AS I'VE ALWAYS SAID!!!!!!!! and steve agrees!

Steve: Silver(DONT UNDERSTAND WHY HE DID NOT GET A GOLD...we'll see when we get his sheet)

ME: Bronze....understandable, my seats and my paint kicked my ass I'm sure, again, well see when we get the judging sheets!

DAVID M. : 1st in PEOPLES CHOICE....his car is bad ass for a new stang....even thou its NEWER.....Ive seen VERY FEW undercarriages that look like his...hes got something to be VERY proud of!!!!

Richard: GOLD in his class!!!! His Stang was looking good, and two thumbs up! :thumbsup:
so ....with that, I have not got my pics developed yet. I'm still having issues w/ my computer/ digital camera.
Here is one shot that Mike took at the show of me, Scott Hoag and Austin Craig......THANKS MIKE! I OWE YOU!!!!!! ;)

Hey that you very much Christine & Judy for the margaritas, they were very much needed and with all that went on, very stress full indeed. Let's say, its not very often you get to prove a head judge wrong and he changes his judging sheet!! :thumbsup: :bounce:
Some Awsome cars out there this weekend and it was a learning experience to be judged by MCA rules. I AM getting my judging sheet to see what needs attention. They spent 15 minutes on my engine & looked at the undercarriage. The 4th generation street driven class is a concourse, all stock (mods get points taken away), which seems to contradict the class of "street driven". Point taken away for non original coil? WTF, the car has over 118k miles and things go out, oh well. Had a good time anyways with the good company I had all weekend... :)

I too question why Steve did not get Gold.Talk about consistency, that Snake looks great when it's dirty,whenever that was.

When I tell someone I will do something,all Hell couldn't keep me from doing it. What I have not told you, I was over at the Ballroon entrance sucking down another gallon of water and a lady, new member MCOH walked up to me and ask if I had cast my vote. I told her yes and volunteered to hunt down those who had not cast their vote. She gave me the handful of ballots! You got roughly 50% of the total and I passed out the rest. I don't know if they are counting chads or not.
