Houston IPMS Show
Posted by modelcarjr on Saturday, May 4, 2019 3:38 PM

I had the good fortune to attend and enter the Houston IPMS show which had over 600 entries and was the strongest attendance in 10 years. Only about 100 were car models. Other categories included a lot of military sugjects and sci-fi. I was fortunate to take two 1st places in Street Rod, 40 Ford Coupe, Light Truck, 29 Ford Vintage Beach Racer, a second in Street Rod with a 37 Ford Coupe, and third place in Open Wheel Racing with the Rislone Eagle 1968 Indy Winner driven by Bobby Unser.

It was a great show and I also picked up a few new models to build! Special thanks to Tim Boyd for two great articles recently in SA. One was on the 40 Ford Hot Rod and the other was the Vintage Beach Racer. I used both articles to great success! Thanks for looking! Cool

If you cannot have a good time, what kinda time can you have? JR

Next on the bench:  Another 1970 Hemi 'Cuda, 1958 Chevy Impala, 1987 Buick GNX, 1950 Chevy Pick-up, Indy Reynard, 1965 Corvette, probably not in this order.
