With the two-and-a-half-year, father-son project now complete, the Browns debuted the roadster at the Goodguys Del Mar show in 2008 where it won the Real McCoy award; in 2009, the pair won a Timberland Homebuilt award with it. The following year, Tim received a STREET RODDER Top 100 award, and is currently in the running for the magazine's Street Rod of the Year competition (see www.streetrodderweb.com for more on the contest). But more than the awards, the car represents the quality time Tim and his dad had together building the car-something no car show plaque will ever top.
