Trophies
« on: May 30, 2013, 02:35:52 PM »
For a couple of years now, I have been looking for vintage trophies & pics of trophies as ideas for creating trophies with style.  The trophies currently in use at car shows are too cartoonish for me.  So far I've managed to purchase a couple of cheapo trophies from eBay, primarily for the trophy head.  I'll post pics of those later.  Meanwhile, here are a few trophy pics that I've found from the 'net.  Feel free to post vintage trophies.

Starting out with a pic from the Altered thread, John Batto with his Crosley and a few of his many tropies.

FROM STREET RODDER MAGAZINE
   
In 1961, Rich's roadster won the Grand National's AMBR trophy; Al and Leroy Stanton got the car ready, and his mom entered it. The following year, Rich's Top Fuel dragster won the America's Most Beautiful Competition Car trophy at The Grand National Roadster Show in Oakland. Rich still retains the two prestigious awards, and he's the only person ever to win them both. They're stored with many other significant awards he's won over the years.

This is a vintage one of a kind trophy from a famous first race held at Charter Oak Park Connecticut in 1905. This was a 5 mile oval dirt track.This is the second place trophy and was sponsered by AAA and was somewhat of a disaster because of numerous accidents and did not resume by AAA untill I believe 1916. This 2nd place trophy was won by C.S. Henshaw in his Thomas Flyer and the first place I think was won by Barney Oldfield in his Green Dragon.
