Great story and congrats on the win. I think it shows an increasing awareness in the public of how much work is involved in restoring a classic GT to that level and perhaps it's also an indication of greater interest in GT's in general.

Everyone who is anyone knows class when they see it. I bet there was some grumbling among the entries, though.

That is amazing considering what those antique cars probably looked like.  It says miles for your restoration, though.  Congratulations!

Congratulations!  That's quite a feat at a car show.  That is one nice Panzer.  This is as close as I could get to the color.  Thanks for sharing.
