Congrats on the win thats awesome! Jacked up was the wrong wording I only said that because mine looked like that not to long ago because i knocked my grill out drivers side. I noticed the scrape on the drivers side...

There's one chip on the front drivers' side of the clam...lol, and the vent cover I have but the screw came out, haven't gotten up in there to put it back in. But if a chip on the edge of the clam is "jacked up" sure =P

There was a Ferrari f430(bone stock no mods so they didn't give him any points really) a 2000 Lotus Esprit(honestly thought he was going to win, but it was also bone stock) only 3 cars classified as "exotics" The judges actually judged correctly based on points for mods, and not just the model of the cars.

Congrats. That's a big ass trophy.

That being said, sorry, but I'd give it to the F430 - stock or not. Even an '04 is still worth like $140K. I'd take it and buy 4 Elises! :)

And yeah, I own a Saffron Yellow Elise!

I 'lost' a best exotic at a cruise night to a Ferrari 250GTO kit car. It was beautiful, but it was a damn kit car. :)

hahah no worries buddy, I was just being a smart ass back =P

I also agree that the Ferrari should have won. I honestly didn't think I would win when I was listening to the announcements =P

I don't think points for exotics should be given based on the sale price - ever! Just because you can afford a car doesn't make you worthy of receiving a trophy (and yes, it's you getting the trophy, not the car.) Someone who puts time into their cheaper exotic is more worthy that someone who only pays for and maintains a more expensive car, as long as they are doing useful and maybe unique things to it. Awards for stock cars should go to the manufacturer, not to the purchaser.

I'm not sure why the Lotus was in the Exotic class, other than apparently they had a class and almost no cars for it.

Congrats on beating the 430 and on the win! What mods do you have? Did you only show, or get a time slip as well?

I was going to head out there myself and just watch the racing, but Wilmer/Hutchins police are hell and registration was out. Nice to know the lotus is classified in the exotic class. Will definitely be hitting up some shows soon!
