Tales of Inspiration Contest - We find it all around us – in the things our friends and family love, in stories, movies, books, television and the internet.  We find inspiration in that picture of our buddy’s build, or from the latest restoration coming out of a favorite shop, in the AMBR and Ridler winners, and the smaller car shows and contests. We find it early in the morning, polishing that fender, and late at night dreaming about the perfect wiring system.  More Info
