John Wells of Jeffersonville, ID, brought this stunnINg '49 Chevy custom for all the crowd to adMIre, and they did. The car took the Waterloo INdustries Best Workmanship Award, the Meguair's "Medallion Award" for OutstandINg Body Appearance, and the class award for Big Car '49-54, Modified. IN case you were wonderINg, John's car is the purple one on the left. INterestINg contrast.

Jerry Aldridge's Decatur, IllINois-based '48 Suburban is a defINite show-stopper. It was awarded the ESPN2 Award of Excellence and the class wIN for SUV-Modified.

This is a dead rINger for the car the author drove IN high school. Was that cool or what? Of course, the car and the author were considerably younger.

This great color stopped the editors IN their tracks, so we couldn't resist awardINg Tracy Teipen, a local INdianapolis guy, an Editor's Choice Top Ten Show Car for his '66 Nova.

John Moss (right with MIcrophone), the Chevy guy who gets to have the most fun, addresses the crowd while Roger GustIN (left) and Super Chevy Show announcer Jerry Daisey look on. Then, of course, it was time for Moss to light up one of his INventions, an SS Impala. Told you he has fun!

You haven't seen a Manufacturers MIdway until you've been to INdy. This is the place for everythINg that's new and needed for your super Chevy.

Close INspection is called for at many of the swap meet booths, but your sharp-eyed editors immediately spotted one of those rare water-INjected supercharged red wagons. Unfortunately, it wasn't numbers matchINg so we passed. The belt drive was a little loose, too.

Friday night we were drivINg through the drag race pits and couldn't help noticINg the balloons, the wrestler, and pretty Christi GaskIN from INdianapolis. FaMIly and friends were celebratINg her 13th birthday at the races. Happy teen-age, Christi!
