Yeah both valid points. Bums me out, really, cause I'd much rather these cars go into the hands of snooty old fart wine and cheesers than to scum like this after whom the car is only useful as parts/scrap/lemons junker

My two favorites included the guy who trailered his slammed miata there because it was too low to drive and the blue miata with such low offset wheels that he had like 3 inches of poke. His solution? Massively cut the fender while, I presume, he waits to install flares.

Yeah I saw both of those. I did not get a chance to really walk around and see all the cars as they were lined up. I saw most as they rolled through though.

There was a nice older wine and cheeser behind my booth that had the FM catalog on his car. He had a silly speaker setup that would read out everything done. It was making me go crazy listening to it all day repeat the same things. I really wanted to go over, and be like I could have done this all for half the cost and you would have been at the same WHP.

I think the old guy had the entire JC Whitney catalog inventory in his car, too.

The kid with the giant wing looked like he was 15 and had a job bagging groceries. No reason to make him feel bad. He probably gets plenty of that already.

I quite like the eliminator at 4:01. I normally think they look kinda off, but the proportions on that one seem better to me for some reason.
