ok.. here is the scoop.. last saturday i was driving to the hobby shop on base, putting some scout axles under a cj-5.. and they are having the 1st annual MCAS New River Car & Truck show.. so i say to my buddy.. lets go check it out.. the vehicles were just arriving..
as i drive up.. this guy flags me down.. and asks for my registration.. i say.. im not entered.. well.. then he talks me into entering.. $10.. i get a T-shirt.. cool..
so here's the jeep.. parked out with all these show cars.. and show trucks.. with armoralled swampers... and custom paint jobs.. chrome engines.. what not.. and my beast..
it sits out there with a spare driveshaft in the back.. old burger king cup.. pair of dirty coveralls on the floor board.. jumper cables, tire iron.. all just heeped in the back.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]..
i explain to the people that i wont be around.. they say no problem..
well around 1pm we come back.. covered from head to toe in grease & sweat.. we of course vote for my jeep.. for best of show.. peoples choice.. as we are turning in the ballets.. i notice two guys checkin out the beast.. so im jokin around and say... well atleast i got 2 votes.. and 2 people to look at it.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img].. they people working their start jokin around with me.. and as i am leaving.. i say.. "so when do i come pick up my trophy's?"...
well the show ends at 3pm.. i get back there at almost 4pm.. my jeep is the only thing out there.. except for the folks cleaning up.. and they are almost gone.. i stick my head out and say.. "well?"
they all yell.. "you won!"..
well.. sure enough.. i get to the jeep.. and there sits a first place trophy for the truck class.. about 3 feet high.. glittering in the drivers seat.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]..
