      Yesterday, @gapracing's Tim was spotlighted by @scottieDTV - the first of what will probably be many interviews about #stampede, a Great 8 hopeful. Well deserved, Tim...

      And there you have it: Stampede. @gapracing is debuting this monster at the 2015 Detroit Autorama, attempting to earn a spot in the Great 8. We were honored to have created the color, Super Blue, as well as wet sanding &polishing the whole damn thing. Kudos to Tim and his crew as well as @comptoninteriors for creating a "stitch less" interior that used no hot glue guns (that I know of). Tomorrow we can relax and soak it all in...

    Goodguys Truck of the Year????

    We took the Hudson up to the 2014 Goodguys Lone Star Nationals in Ft. Worth last weekend in hopes of becoming the 6th and final Finalist for the Goodguys' Truck of the Year - Early (pre-'53). We arrived just in time to line up amid well over 100 phenomenal trucks all vying for the last spot in the coveted contest. Only in Texas could you see this many "over the top" trucks in one place.
     
    In a effort to for once write a quick, to the point blog, we were selected as the 6th national finalist to compete for the coveted Truck of the Year - Early Award. We cannot thank the Goodguys organization enough for the privelidge and honor of the selection.
    I am not sure when the selection is made, as I understand they do it by "committee" in their offices versus at the actual show(s). I guess that is because the 6 finalists are chosen from select Goodguys events around the country versus from one show as with the "Street Machine of the Year" and "Street Rod of the Year" awards, among others. So, we wait. Presumably, the selection will be made this week and the winner announced.
    Whomever the winner is, they will be invited to appear at the final Goodguys show of the year in Scottsdale, AZ next month. If the stars all line up, hopefully we will be writing again from sunny Arizona. Stay tuned.
    One of my favorite moments was when this young man walked up to me, stuck out his hand and said, "Hi, my name is Hudson". He proved to be a polite, interesting young man with a great handshake. Someone has done a great job planting the right seeds in Hudson. I hope to meet him again.

    One of the other 5 Truck of the Year - Early candidates
    I don't know whom the other 5 candidates are, except this gorgeous black Ford pickup. Obviously, the stakes are high and I'm sure the other 4 trucks selected are equally as attractive and worthy. The Hudson has its work cut out for it.
    Also, the folks at Bangshift.com were kind enough to take an interest in the Hudson and shot pictures for an upcoming article they will post in their popular online magazine. I'll post a link to it as soon as they let me know the article is released in to the wild of the Interwebs.
    The following images are a few of the things that cought my eye while hanging out in the Heart of Texas.
