Who would of thought?
« on: October 19, 2014, 07:27:46 PM »
So it was a good weekend. 

I entered my '77 Bobcat in a local car show and low and behold it won first place in the classic original category. 

I was pretty excited.  I guess there will be more car shows in our future.

Who would have thought a Bobcat could compete.

 :D I think if you put a Lincoln badge in the middle of the grille and come up with a bumper mount rear tire kit it pass as a Lincoln version.I never heard of one but they did make a Lincoln version of a Ford Grenada(Versailles). Add some nice wire wheels to complete.
Pinto-is short for pint-o-fun.

Since I last posted I entered my Bobcat in two more car shows.

In the first I won 3rd in the Domestic Category.
In the second I won 2nd in the Classic Category.

Feeling good- might do this more often.
