continuing the coverage of the Hot Rod Fever show.
Every car show has winners and losers. Those owners whose cars stand out in a crowd of awesomeness are rewarded. Sometimes with cash, sometimes with prizes, and sometimes with a trophy.
Well at the CTEC show the trophies were outstanding. Not your average run of the mill things bought from the party store. No, these were hand-crafted and painted right on campus.
The joys of constantly disassembling vehicles is that you come up with spare parts. Like a whole bunch of pistons, brake rotors, ring gears, camshafts, etc.
Seriously, who wouldn’t want one of these manly concoctions sitting on their mantel? Creative thinking mixed with a whole lot of candied paint:
And there was a whole table full of these things! I sat and drooled for a while:
And what I have to imagine was the first place trophy. A ginormis golden and purple camshaft with three rings of excellence atop it. Absolutely gorgeous:
Congrats to all the winners, and to whoever had the awesome idea of making these things. Job well done!
