So this was entirely impromptu on my part, having decided at the extreme last minute to go. Spark Plugs Auto Club is a local group I had never heard of before but they came with some simply gorgeous cars. The Exocet was very much out of place in terms of style yet fit well in terms of labor of love all these cars are.

The only other import from Japan at the show was a 1991 Nissan Figaro.

While I definitely stood out as the only exoskeleton vehicle and the only road-racing prepped car, I wasn't expecting to be recognized in any way. Still, the club's judges felt my Exocet deserved their Coolest Car Award, which I wasn't expecting at all.
