In the January 2012 issues we brought the story of the biggest shake-down road trip Project X has ever undertaken, but there were so many photos that we just didn't have space to print! One of our favorite stops, and the destination for the Popular Hot Rodding/Real Deal Steel Tri-Five Cruise sponsored by Woody's Hot Rodz was the Shades Of The Past car show in Pigeon Forge, TN. Thanks to the show's patriarch Bobby Alloway, X had a space of honor near the corral for the winners- and this gallery shows the judges picks for 2011.
One of the unique things about Shades is that the same car can win in multiple categories, so you'll see a few repeats cars with different awards. Either way, these winners show what a diverse show Shades has become over the years, as well as the high caliber of cars that show up to show off.
