Finally the big one after about 70 shows

After 4 years of showing now, 47 awards, probably about 70 shows, I finally won the big one in a show! Best of Show, it's wasn't a big show, but it's my biggest trophy size wise! I've had more prestigious ones, but not one this big, and I wanted a big one! LOL

I'm not 100 percent sure, but I think it's the GPS antenna. I've replaced my head unit/amp years ago, so my current one doesn't use it for GPS or satellite if I'm incorrect in it's function. But it will remain as it would be more hassle to remove it and then clean up that area and the hole.

Thanks all for the well wishes, it's been a grind with all the shows, but fun too. Always a bit disappointing not to come home with a big one, but I also recognized it's the nature of the car show biz. It was nice to break through finally.
