Yeah the rules call out exhibition cars for teams whose builds didn't get done/broke/other circumstances.  It's not just sign up for exhibition purposes.  That's not fair to the competitors

Although it'd be cool if Radwood hosts a show on Saturday during concours, so cars like that can show up and have a place.

Nothing is stopping people with minty 80s and 90s cars that are well over budget from going to the Challenge as spectators and parking all of their cars in a big row in the parking lot with the hoods up.

Just sayin'

Well, nothing official.  I suspect, based on my own experiences with keeping such hardware running reliably, that may be wishful thinking and very dependent on the skills and patience of the owners.

Why do I want an early 80's Caprice coupe all of a sudden?

Fixed for more awesomeness. I mean they were terrible cars but factory Hyundai turbo car in the early 90’s.

I've got Skyways on my 24" cruiser, but the 20" I will bring to Challenge is wearing Mongoose Pro-class hoops laced to high flange Sunshine hubs laugh

Great.  My 97 Jetta GT and my non running 98 Eclipse qualify.  Or is that a good thing?

Completely off topic, but do they make tuffs in modern geometry? I'm having a berkeley of a time finding a set of wheels I want for a pseudo mid build. I found most of the right pieces- Sunday makes a sweet pink frame and I've considered just calling Mike Laird- but NO ONE is making white hoops right now, and tuffs might be a better idea.
