DETROIT AUTORAMA THE GREAT 8 WHO WILL WIN THE RIDLER AWARD?

I was on the road last week heading across the country through parts unknown!
I got some great new photos and I will try to follow my usual Great 8 pics, but must interrupt the six days on the road blog!
If I realized I was a week off I may have actually stopped in Detroit, but it did not work for me.
Have a look at last years competition on the link here

The Detroit autorama GREAT 8 have been picked, only one takes the Ridler Award!
HERE WE GO
I am going make my comments beneath each car
Shipped all the way from Australia
Chris and Colleen Bitmead's Ford Falcon XBOSS
Two Big Thumbs up for making the trek from downunder although the car is fantastic it lacks a unique look from 1st glance

Pat and Mike Matkin's 1938 Graham Shark 
When you take a car that already possesses a unique design any changes might be lost  

Mirage, Lincoln Zephyr Custom
First glance I leaned into this one, but balance and overall flow of design changed as you move to the rear of the car

Bill Thomas's 1939 Oldsmobile Convertible "Olds School"
Remember First Glance and this one looks like a chiseled masterpiece  

Joe Horsick's 1961 Chevrolet "Double Bubble" 409 wagon
Many innovations here, it looks like a modified Chevy, although exotic and nicely executed

Greg Malvaso's 1940 Willy's Pro Street
Been done before, but not to take away from a spectacular presentation, it still looks like a 1940 Willy's

Mark Gooden's 1952 Mercedes Benz 170S
It takes an enormous imagination and large risk to roll a Mercedes Benz into the Autorama and it is very well done!  

Dan Warther's 1937 Ford Deluxe coupe with Ford Hemi
Subtle body changes clean build

Eight absolute fantastic cars for sure, but lets go over the rules, the car must 100% preview to any public viewing at the Autorama, they look for not only quality, but I think the overall first impact of the car when you see it. Innovation followed through a theme. The Ridler award is one trophy that has the biggest impact.
CARHUNTER has it narrowed down and will pick my choice, I have been on the mark so far so lets see what happens this year WHO DO YOU PICK?
