I just can't decide between three cars , that Ultima is stunning ! The Dyna Scorpion is a resurrected moment in history and as for the Murdered out car , it's Black! infact it reminds me of a line from one of my favourite books , " it's black on a black background with black buttons that light up black to tell you you've pressed them" , I need more time to think on this one . Extra kudos for identifying the book the line is from.
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.

Tomeg gets my vote , after reading all the build thread and all the unique fabrication and research it comes out top , it's another really tough call though as it's maybe not the most beautiful car but that's very subjective , all the effort involved cannot be denied though .

TomEG's got my vote, I love all the reverse engineering and hard work that went into it.

While I appreciate and respect all entries and entrants; a murdered out single deck graphite buggy was a no brainer, for me, at least, as I have no brain. No brains, no headaches.

BOTMC!
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I think this is one of the most "balanced" BoMC rounds... lots of stuff, resto-mods, replicas, scratch-built engineered stuff, I love it!!!

Maybe I should have voted for myself.... but OrangeMazda gets my vote. :mrgreen: That is a beautiful build!! And his build thread actually has pics in it! :lol: suck it photobucket...

Like Lonestar said, it's a well rounded group this month. It's really hard to pick one when they are all so amazing and you can see that so much effort went into each one. Great work guys!

If I ever get my garage finished I'll get back to work and enter some more of these. :lol:

A well deserved win TomEG , I do feel sorry for the rest as there really were some deserving builds .
