Well, the FuglyCool winners fronted on a bitterly cold night to do a few parade laps in front of a drooling audience who a) marvelled at the skill and creative genius behind these two extraordinary builds and b) wondered how they beat the sheer magnificence of the mighty MetroJET to take out top honours.
As an unbiased observer, I can tell you that these beauties are much, much better in the flesh than the pix on this forum suggest:
...and though neither of them had wings or a jet engine, it was an absolute joy seeing them circulate on my track.
As always, winners are grinners...
Perhaps, on reflection, I now understand why Munter gave these builds the nod. Both cars are ridiculously cool. But those builders??? Maybe that's where the Fugly came into play.
Thanks again to everyone who has enjoyed this thread. It's game over. You can both stop clapping and sit down now.
