We challenged readers to take part in a Street Rod Scavenger Hunt while thousands of the classic cars were in town for their national meet last weekend at the York Expo Center. Contestants needed to photograph a list of items and submit them to our online street rod gallery here. The contestant with the most points, as defined in our contest guidelines, would be declared the winner.
There were several fun and impressive entries. We were really excited to see how determined our readers were to find all 10 items, with bonus points. Everyone was shooting for a perfect score.
In the end, Lance Peters of Red Lion was the winner, accumulating 18 of a possible 20 points. Lance found all 10 items on the list, and collected bonus points in all but two categories.
Here is his winning collection, along with captions/comments, where applicable.
In some of our entries, the term “vanity” plate threw some folks off. We judged some entries to be special organization plates instead of vanity plates.
This category was tough to judge. One man’s pink is another man’s fuschia.
As our winner pointed out on his entry, the list asked for a racing number ON THE DOOR of the car, which meant those cars with numbers on the rear quarter, or area just behind the side window, did not count.
We got some great entries for this “toy” category.
Wolf shifter knobs seem to be all the rage with the street rodders, as a majority of our entries featured them in this category.
No one found a Ford engine in a Chevy, but almost everyone found their Chevy engine in a Ford.
Whitewalls and chrome wheels seemed to be one of the easiest finds.
There were plenty of T-buckets, and plenty of folks sitting in them.
Congratulations again to Lance, and thank you to all of our contestants, including Michele Kern, Susie Lewis, Emma Grace Paul, Joyce Krauss, Ariel Chambers, Sam Garncarz and Charles Dugan.
