A few pre-show pics to enjoy......
Don't forget the whip. Mike's been a bad boy.

Space looks good Mikey, surprised no back curtain divider, see you tomorrow.
World of Wheels - Chicago 2018 was OUTSTANDING!!!
Well over 600 vehicles attended & competed in various classes.
I was placed within the "Conservative Hardtop" class.
Conservative one would ask. Right? Ha. That one left me puzzled to, until I began glancing around at all the other truly, truly outstanding vehicles positioned all around the show floor.
These fellow owners certainly brought their 'A' game and it was/is amazing to try and conceive the tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in most of these high class vehicles.
Made me humble knowing despite how much I enjoy my SHO, and how much time, talent, and treasure I've poured into mine, that I am still just an amateur in comparison.
That said, I am still very grateful at having been allowed to exhibit. I met so many wonderful car enthusiasts and spectators alike from all walks, all ages, and all ethnicities. It's nice knowing we all share a commonality in our love for motor vehicles.
What a great experience!
I had to laugh because some of competitors commented at the awards ceremony on how they grew tired of hearing people talk about my SHO. More importantly while those very same spectators were checking out their cars! LOL.
So yes, I am happy. Happy for a multitude of reasons. I was graciously bestowed a FIRST PLACE plaque for the aforementioned class. Wow! First time exhibiting and I received that level of recognition.
Completely and pleasantly surprised.
Elated I was able to inform so many people about the SHO platform as well as representing the SHO family at such a ginormous event.
Here's a few pics......
Thanks to all who made it out. I enjoyed visiting/talking.
Congratulations! Thank you for the getting the SHO known to more people
mike- well done. kind of nice being the only sho, but not a surprise.i have same issue at the much smaller shows that i take mine too. no way in a stock class. of course i get away with the same thing since few if any judges have a clue what a stock gen4 sho looks like. but mine is now where near as rad as yours.
Excellent! Glad the event was such a huge success for you! It's obvious you have put a lot of time, money, and love into your car.
Now you have to top it for next year.
Yep, spent hours walking and drooling, amazing work everywhere. Mike deserved what he won, they truly had no choice, the effort is obvious.
Thanks Tommy Boy.
It was great seeing you once again. I enjoyed catching up and thanks for bringing the guys out too.
I'll have everyone know I did implement the "safe word" almost instantly. Hahaha.
But yes, tons upon tons of just simply incredibly well detailed and well built, well displayed cars.
I did my best (to display my best) relative to all the other wonderful cars there. I am grateful for the recognition I received.
But most of all, it was just a blast getting to speak to everyone about the SHO platform.
CONGRATS ! Mike
