SO WHO WON???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

So if I had all the votes, you'd already know.  ::)

Not waiting on me for a change.
Derwood

One judge on this page and one on the Classic page still pending. People have stuff going on and are busy so whenever I receive their votes, I will finish it up.

For those who might be wondering: They way I've done it up to this point is, I make mention in the contest thread regarding turning in votes. When it comes down to one judge left, I contact them through PM as a friendly reminder. That is done so it's all good.  :)
If you can't look back on your younger self and realize you were an idiot, you're probably still an idiot.

    Hmmm. I think I've been at it 4 years..................   ;D

    I wonder how far back and if there's any archive for previous FOTY contest.   :)

    Thanks for the votes!   I am still amazed at how many sleds are still out there!  I entered in 2008 with a Super 340 I picked locally.  I actually ran against it with my 73 340 Starfire.  Here's a pic of the Super as I found it:

    I do!  It also came with a spare NOS engine.  Its all apart now, and the tunnel will be going out this month for paint.  Hope to finish by spring.

    I would like to thanks Chris and your judges for the votes, it was a real surprise to me when I heard about it, pretty cool.
    I would like to thank my good friend David Shope who found it buried in that barn and stayed on the guy to sell it.
    It truly was a barn find.
    Thanks again to everyone involved. Tim

    Thanks to all who participated in making such an enjoyable thread to follow.
    My wife says that I can have all the sleds that I can hide.
