Sometimes the best things really do come in small packages.  That was certainly the case with the Chattanooga O’Reilly World of Wheels this year.  102,000 square feet of space filled with over 150 of the best cars, trucks and motorcycles to be found anywhere in the country. 

On Saturday afternoon a delegation of judges and show staff delivered the special “Fantastic 5” Plaques to:

Erwin Aderhold, 1932 Ford Roadster

Sam Lynn, 1967 Pontiac Firebird

Jim Jackson, 1957 Cheverolet Bel Aire

Len Evans, 1941 Willys Coupe

Scott Jobb, 1937 Ford Cabriolet

These plaques are placed in the displays of the top five contenders for the Bill Croft Memorial Award for the Best First Time Shown in Chattanooga.  This award ultimately went to Sam Lynn.

This same delegation also delivered the “Bikers Best 5” Plaques to:

Rocky Vowell, 2005 Custom Pro Street

Sidney Irvin, Jr, 2005 Ironhorse Texas Chopper

Delbert Haynes, 2009 Big Dog K-9

Jeff Hibbs, 1995 Honda CBR900

Chaus Neal, 2002 Honda Goldwing

These plaques recognized the top contender for the Chattanooga Charlie Memorial Award for the Best First Time Shown Bike in Chattanooga.  Rocky Vowell came out on top in this competition.

Meanwhile, the show continued to rock with returning feature favorites, Von Hot Rod, a nationally know pin striper and the On the Edge Bike Team, an amazing group of bicycle stunt riders as well as a motorcycle stunt rider.  Other special features included a TNA Wrestling super star, personalities from top TV shows and Miss World of Wheels 2011. 

The Tennessee Gold Cup Award that goes to the Best First Time Shown in Chattanooga from Chattanooga went to Jim Jackson from Murfreesboro, Tennessee with his 1957 Chevy Bel Air.  This award is always a local favorite for obvious reasons!  Other special awards included the “O’Reilly Pick of the Show that went to Tim Daniels and his 1939 LaSalle, the Ford Muscle Award for the Best Ford Powered Ford going to Perry Burchfield and his 1961 Ford Galaxy and Billy Head and his 1964 Chevy Impala walked away with the GM Muscle Award for the Best GM Powered GM car.  The Mopar Muscle Award went to Patsy Beaty for her 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Import Muscle Award was awarded to Brandon Griffin and his 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse. This year’s “People’s Choice Award”, voted on by the show's spectators throughout the weekend, was presented to Bill Wiley for his 1957 Chevy 2 Door Hard Top.

MotorSports Productions’ unique Gold Star Street Series for street driven vehicles awarded several awards in recognition of exhibitors who enjoy not only showing their vehicles but also driving them.  This competition does not judge the undercarriage of the vehicle and appreciates the special efforts of those who “drive and show”.  These awards include Best Interior awarded to Buster Isbell with a 2005 Toyota Tundra, Best Engine going to Larry Miller and his 1937 Chevy 2 Dr Sedan, Best Paint to Perry Mayo with his 1937 Ford Cabriolet, Best Use of Color to Jeff Hibbs with a 1999 Chevy 3500, Best Bike Paint to Jeff Hibbs and his 1995 Honda CBR900, Best Bike going to Delbert Haynes with a 2009 Big Dog K-9 and Best of Show awarded to Bob McCary with his 1941 Ford Convertible.

The Chattanooga Speech and Hearing Center participates in the show each year by manning the Monster Truck Bounce House and accepting donations. 100% of these donations go to provide services to children who cannot otherwise afford them.  We would like to thank all of our exhibitors who participated and helped this worthy cause.
