Unfortunately this thread is not about a bikini contest at the Challenge. 
 

Does anyone know the make of the "bikini top" that was given as a prize at the Challenge?  I'm curious what it looks like and if I can make it work on the spyder. Also, is it $0 budget hit if I won it?

I like to think Challenge prizes are free in budget. I like to think this because I want Gumby to add that free turbo to his car for next year.

Right?!  I didn't even know I needed it, but now I'm really excited about it.  I picked up a roll bar yesterday for $20 that the seller "thinks is from a Corvette".  Appears to be good dimensions to cut and fit on the spyder!

They also won a $1000 ebaymotors gift card, and 10 other folks won $100. Is that prize money "free" to budget?

I want it to be free, but I see a potential mess.

Congrats on the win, but prizes aren't free to the budget.

Yes, we can. No need to ask Tom, I approve and will help with promotion.

I haven't been to the Challenge before but I can't imagine I want to see any of you guys in bikinis.

The year that I did the first Q45 with the Cheerleaders, the Rapper suits, the DJ and the sound system my real goal (which I didn't perfectly hit but still good) was to recreate Nopi Nationals circa 2003.  I wanted to create some juxtaposition of "everything that GRM never was and never would be."

That was a lot of fun at the challenge and those days were a lot of fun back in my youth.

 

I have considered a HIN theme for my '90s rice rocket... this will probably be my last challenge car so I'm not concerned with being banned!
