Posting this a little late but I entered the CJ into the Rockford Hooters end of year Labor Day Car Show. They have cruise nights every Friday but this was an actual car show on Labor Day Sunday with judging, trophies and prizes. They had a pretty good turn out with over 130 cars. Here are just a few.

Not sure about the square headlights but I love the color.

This guy had his intercooler in the trunk and the ducting took up the entire passenger's side.

I'm pretty sure this guy said something like 2000HP.

A bought, not built Bronco. Which I thought was kind of cool.

No comment.

Here's about a thousand hours worth of my labor.

I had to leave early but the guy in a Corvette parked next me was kind enough to take my business card to let me know if I won anything. Sure enough, he called me later that night to tell me that the CobraJ7 won Best of Custom Car. I just got the trophy from him. I think I might need to take the CJ back to Hooters to get some pictures with the girls.

Congrats Mike!!! I never doubted. And no custom hood prop for your BOC! Lots of nice cars at the show.

Go Fish! <*////><

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Nice man congrats on that. You certainly deserve the recognition. Nice to know the judges realized it's not about buying every bolt-on shiny object out of a catalog and calling it a custom Jeep.

I gotta say I do like that Bronco though. Any second gen Camaros there? I have this fetish for them but I hardly see them anywhere.

I know this thread is a little old, but I still wanted to comment.

I recently acquired a '79 cj5 and your build is an inspiration. Thanks so much for spending the time to put so many details on this site.

How are you enjoying the fruits of your labor these days?

Is that the dreaded "Jeep Lean" I'm seeing on the famous Cobra CJ, or does Mike need to loose some lbs?

I just noticed the earlier (oct.) posts of the show. Congrats Mike, it was a well deserved trophy. I also really love that blue bobtail Bronco.
