HAMS 2013 Model Car Show & Contest Results

August 10, 2013 at 9:34 pm | Blog | No comment

 

On August 3, 2013, HAMS held their annual model car contest. Forty-nine modelers entered 189 models in 21 categories. Two of those categories ended up being split into two separate categories each because of the quantity and quality of the models. We would like to thank everyone who attended, entered, and/or vended at the show. You are what made the show a success. We would also like to thank our sponsors, ModelJunkyard.com & VintageRPM.com, and a special thank you to Curtis Burton and his wife for bringing out a pair of fantastic 1:1 cars (Hennessy Ford GT and 1969 Shelby GT500 Convertible) to help celebrate our show theme of “A Salute to Carroll Shelby”.
