2010 Winning Vehicles

Thank you all for making this another fabulous show with approximately 270 vehicles attending. You donated 168 pair of shoes for BIG FEET plus $345 in cash donations. Thank you again for helping kids in need!

I don't recall an ABCD that it hasn't rained including this one! By noon, the threatening clouds gave way to bright, clear skies so most of us left with a little sunburn!

We are still uploading photos, so if you have one you'd like to post, please email it to debra (at) kipmotor.com.

THANKS for making this a fabulous show!!!

The Girls also collected about 20 pounds of toiletry items for their service project at The Ronald McDonald House. Sweet!

Below are the winning vehicles. All vehicles had to be 25 years old or more to place in Class voting.

Best of Show

“ I think I speak for all of us when I say,’ huh?'"

I almost demanded a recount when I received the people’s choice ribbon.  Is there any other number voters could have got AR5 confused with?  I love my car, but it’s hard to believe that many other people would also like it enough to vote for it over some of the fantastic cars at the show.  Please let me know if there is any possibility that this is a mistake!?  Thanks again for all your hard work.  The show was wonderful.

Editor's Comments: After a couple of inquiries concerning the BEST OF SHOW aka PEOPLE'S CHOICE winner, I recounted the votes, doubled checked the ballots and yes, the '88 Alfa Romeo WON the Best of Show. It doesn't take many votes to win as most people vote for their own cars. My guess is that a group of folks block voted for the '88 for whatever the reason. So, the winner stands. Keep in mind that most ballots did not have a vote for Best of Show.
