The winner may have well just bought a new car in .pointless. well done though karl.
Yeah not exactly in the spirit of things is it, I think to qualify as a car it should have had to have been driven there at least. Or have 2 categories, one for cars that get used as cars, and one for car shaped things that never do any actual miles

Yeah, normally I think these competitions just have one overall winner. They did split it down this year into different Marque's which meant more winners and better odds of winning. BUT, you cannot compete a daily driver against a show car that arrives and leaves on a trailer.

I'm just honoured to have been selected, and seeing Kumo get all the attention. As they say, it's the taking part that counts, so no sore loser here :)

Congratulations on second place. Think for next year only cars actually driven to the show should be allowed to enter. You’ll still get someone trailering down and unloading around the corner though.

You can tell which ones went in on a trailer... zero wear at all on the brake discs... Most of the cars in there had brand spaking new, out the box discs :joy:

There was no official second/third place etc... I was awarded it by my EOC family based on the fact it was the only car in there that is used every day and had been slept in the night before by 2 very drunk people :joy:

Well done @Karl you did well to come second against a trailer queen, no road car is going to be able to compete with that.
Does anybody have a picture of what did win it (just being nosey) :)

There were a few winners. There were a few categories for all the Japanese Marque's, so Nissan, Toyota, Suzuki, Subaru, etc.
Then there were 2 "special" categories which were Motorsport and Retro.

I fell into the Nissan Category, and the winner was...

Widebody Nissan Skyline R32 GTR. Looks to have been completely rebuilt from the bottom up, with new everything. You could eat your dinner off the engine.

Must agree with the comments, a car is for driving not trailering around the country . Absolutely useless, any one with a bit if money and time can get a vehicle to that standard if it's not driven . Bloody well Karl.😎👍👍👍👍Ellgrands rule ok.

Karl your the winner bud, the Skyline was a pure show car, once built and kept in a heated garage anyone can clean that for shows but to run the car every day with kids and the shit roads we have over here and come second in the Show and Shine is a BIG CHALLENGE which you mastered. Well done bud.
