In Hilliard Ohio. Probably over 200 cars and some very nice one's at that. I didn't think I'd get anything, but I did get a Favorite's Trophy for my effort. The show was tilted towards classics which is why I was surprised I received something. They didn't have an import or above 1981 and above class or something like that. They did have Vette, Ford, Chevy, Mopar, that kind of thing. Someday I'll get a big one, but I'm not going to get greedy, this is my 5th trophy in 8 meets this summer, and lot of great cars went home empty handed. :) It was for a great cause and I was happy to represent. But man was it hot (93 degrees) and humid (60/70%).

Take note of the Dawg, the new Chrome Hood fins! Notice how they tie into the Chrome on the headlights/Emblem/wheels. I think they make a nice accent.

Never a worry on my part at the least. I've reach my summer goal of 5 awards, that was what I was shooting for. I just wished there were more for the Import class or newer cars, but I just keep plugging away and keep learning with each meet. Being recognized for being one of the top cars in most meets is something. With my sensor problem that I scrambled to get fixed on Friday, I was just happy to have an opportunity to compete! :)

I don't know about the Chrome Radiator fin, never thought about it. I was pushing my Chrome limit with the hood fins, although I do like the idea of Chrome Roll bars like on Marykay's SLK. I'm more inclined to look at getting the wood grain kit for the center console, since my car came with some wood grain paneling from the factory. I just don't understand why they did half a job from MB in the first place. I'm still exploring the lambo door hinge kit. I just can't find anyone that would install them. I even asked LSD doors if they heard/knew of a vendor in the region that installs them. No response yet.

My advice would be to NOT install a LSD kit on your car. There are threads on this board from extremely qualified members (past and present) that question whether or not they put too much stress on the chassis inasmuch as we have vario roof systems. BTW, glad you were able to have a good show afterall.
