Buddy - you've shared this build from day one.  The inspiration, the changes, the troubles, the successes. 

While you and the team have fronted the time and money, the sweat and the headaches, we've also become invested in this project.

Federal-Mogul may make spark plugs, but we know who the champion is.

 cheers

Thanks again to all of the votes and support!
 
The votes count for 33% of the total 'value' Champion places on the entry. The rankings were based on video views, so it's hard to guess how the views correlated to votes.
 
Champion will announce the 15 finalist on Feb.18. Thanks to all of YOU, I feel our chances are good.
 
Regardless of the outcome, we owe a HUGE part of our success and fun to all of you, for the support and encouragement you have provided us.
 
Thanks again!

Hey, we just pushed buttons - YOU GUYS pushed the project!

Best of luck - there was nothing else competing in this competition that had a story like the FlatCad.

I have been lost for the first 15 min. of my day now. I haven't any thing to vote  on since it was over. Good luck Buddy and crew, you had a great presentation, first class video and Glen's words we all want to hear.

Well Gang . . .  we did not make it to the top 15 finalists - THANKS for all your support and efforts - you've been amazing and we're blessed to have you all involved.

This is kind of like every dang contest you've ever been in - somebody has to win and somebody has to lose (unless it is a 'Politically Correct' event - where everybody gets a fricking trophy).  So be it . . .

Yes, we were obviously way ahead of some of the 15 winners in the number of times our video was viewed and I'm sure we were way ahead of some in votes, but this contest was clear -> 1/3 Votes, 1/3 Best Depiction of a Champion and 1/3 Inspirational Quality.   In the end the first third is very concrete and the last two thirds are intangible and involve the opinion of the judges.   Their opinion is just that - theirs . . . and it is also their contest, not ours.

So with all due respect to Champion, we're thankful for the opportunity to represent the true hotrod spirit of the HAMB and the entire LSR community as a whole.   We gave the contest hell and we had a TON of support from this LSR community - you guys are awesome!   We also made a lot of new friends - makes it all worth it in our minds.

Onward and Faster . . .

The FlatCad crew, sponsors and supporters are not slowing down - we plan to be right back out there this summer . . . as we're just getting started. 

I'll leave you with this --> It is not a car, an engine or a cool part that makes all of this special -- it is all the people on our extended team . . . that is where the Champions truly come from.  No trophy or prize can touch that - period.

Take care and keep swinging the bat with us!  And Hard! shocked

See Yah on the Salt  . . .

It was great to see Buddy and the FlatCad at the GNRS. We were in the same building and I doubt that I

said more than ten words to Buddy. That's just the way it works. All of us were busy even with nothing to do.

His effort in getting the car there was supreme as is everything they do.

See you on the Salt.  Good Job, Buddy.

Rat's I voted every time I was around a computer.

Maybe the next contest will be "doing the impossible with an engine and a combination of parts and custom engineering that has never been done before and then having the nerve to drive it at the most hostile place on earth!" That contest I am sure you will win.
