And the winner of the Concourse contest is... drum roll please...

None other than Tony Phalen with his 1969 Chevy Z28 Camaro painted with a Gulf Oil racing scheme.

Here are a few of my bodies from this weekends roar carpet nats. The red black and white one was my main body but it ended up getting tore up in the qualifiers. I guess i pressed a little hard on the xacto when painting because it tore right down the side on my red cut lines. Because of that on Saturday I had to quickly paint up a body for the mains so i painted the black and green one up in back of mikes in less than 2 hrs right before the concourse lol.
