Being that the voting hammer came down without any notice and thread was locked so there couldn't be any replies posted there for some reason....

The real winners are those who helped in the creation of the Gator Bob car.

NOOSE Custom Painting-Since 1967
Who was the despoiler of the clear purity of virgin Lexan body - By Outisight Designs

If you want to win the the next Concours at your track contact Joe with your dream paint scheme or concept of what your slot car is supposed to look like.

Joe wins :victory: .... but I'm keeping the Award :D

Thank you Mr. Noose :good:

And .... Thank YOU to everyone that voted !!! :clapping:

Hey Bob,


:dance3: Congratulations :dance3:


Well deserved win :good:

I think the other thread is closed so that nobody can vote anymore.

Cheers,

No Bob, I provided no "prizes" for the previous race and there are no prizes given out at this race other than bragging rights.
It's all for fun and we have to be careful about taking things too seriously.

I'm willing to bet he paid good money to get the body painted, chassis built, and motor work done.

But mine is still more 'priceless' since I done it myself!

I have no problem with "check book" racing Brian. In fact it encourages some very beautiful cars that would not normally be seen.

Your car Brian... is very nice btw. The fact that you did it your self is testament to your skills to be sure!

Actually the body, motor and chassis were all free. It was a joint effort me noose and hershman for the fun of it. Bob I could not charge as he is a good friend.

No money exchanged hands or small pets were injured in the creation of the Evil thingies. lol...

Bob,

I will offer congratulations for the Concours win!

No one was even close!

Maybe the next Proxy should mandate a more satifying award for such an accomplishment!
If so, there should be a specific criteria for how that is judged more accurately than a popularity vote. It would give more credibility to that competition.

Jairus,

Regarding check book racing... the chick is in the mail! She required more than a first-class stamp, but she is a 1st class chick!
