Caution -- This page will load SLOOOW -- Sorry! Good time to go get a coffee!

     This is our first attempt at this contest -- 1999 -- and we were surprised at the response! Great time had by all!

     Mr. Randy Rundle, of 5th Avenue Antique Auto Parts (see the Links Page), was our esteemed celebrity judge. "It was a tight race," according to Randy. The "People's Choice Award" was a close-call, too! Enjoy the entries ... it was a lot of fun. A special thanks to our Count and Countess for tallying up the People's Choice Votes: Tony and Joy Pascerella.
