Just have to take a minute to brag on my grandparents - they've spent years - many, many years - restoring their old '40 Ford convertible and finally finished it this year. They did most of the work on it themselves, and it is BEAUTIFUL. They've been entering it in some shows lately, and this is the email I received from my Grandma this afternoon:
"We took our car to Whitewright yesterday and won..PEOPLE'S CHOICE..that meant we were in competition with 42 other cars..it wasn't just our class, it was all of them that were there and there were some real nice ones..ta-da ta-da..we were so proud..love y'all..me"
