Default Re: 2014 AMBR Contender Sneak Peek

looks like it should be one of the contenders from the pics. Now that it is not about being the most Hi Tech or all about points, cars like this have a chance. Beauty and style now go into the equation as has been seen the last two yrs.

I look forward to seeing it on the main floor.

Get a hold of that guy Terry Stoker (maybe thru 39ChevyBob) mentioned in the first post. He built that green car. I saw it first a few yrs back and was floored when I looked inside. Very tasteful

Rad! Regardless of how it competes on the level that the AMBR is, I think it will continue to do what has been happening in the last few years and rattle the cage. It looks like a beautiful car and I can't wait to see it in a few weeks. Good luck!

Ala Kart will always be the king to me. I wish crazy show rods would be as accepted as the dime-a-dozen vanilla flavored cars, but then again I like being the only guy anywhere explaining why there's upholstery on my engine. People just don't get it. It kinda rules.

I love the fact that the owner and builder are building what they want first and not trying to fill the wish list of what they think will win. I think many of the past contenders ( and some winners) look confused in their design trying to fill in all the required boxes. Many of them are not comfortable or drivable. Essentially just a piece of art trying to look like a car. This car is the best built and most highly detailed example of what the owner thinks is the most roadster. Regardless of the shows outcome, I hope he enjoys this car for thousands of miles. I dig it

AMBR, great show! I enjoy seeing what the guys with the mega bucks are building, but I relate to the low buck builds. You can learn something from both. To me it's all about the quality of the build, not the amount of money it cost. This 32 roadster looks very high quality to me. Here's hoping it'll be a contender.

That car is a breath of fresh air in the middle of the billetted, candied mega$$ contenders for this trophy that seem to garner the big share of the media attention at that show.

I like cheering for the underdog - I would have loved to see Russ Freund's purple T win, and I cheer for the Ottawa Senators - so I guess that makes me a little whacky. Good luck in the big show!!

I like it.
Subtle is good and hopefully last years winner represents a change toward more traditionally styled cars.

Good luck.

I love it, awesome car, great idea and build!!!!!!!!!!!

But ALAS, it will not even get a sniff as a AMBR contender, In recent years cars like this have been swept under the carpet and that is a shame.

[QUOTE=K13;9444091]There have been a number of cars in contention the last couple of years that we're not high end shop, money thrown at the cars. The two from Thee Inland Emperors from the N.W. immediately come to mind. Since the rule changes a couple of years ago things have definitely been swinging away from that norm.


I agree from what I've seen the last couple of years. There are always the high dollar professional cars but the cars from the Inland Emperors have been club built (If I recall correctly) and were both really impressive entries. As mentioned, things have changed quite a bit in recent years in a positive way.
