Last weekend my dad took the 1968 Shelby Mustang that he had restored and rebuilt for Dan Heller to the Autorama Car Show in Rosemont,Illinois which is right outside of Chicago. My dad brought it to Detroit the weekend before but since Dan Heller lives in Illinois, he wanted his friends and family to be able to see it at a show. My mom, dad, and I traveled to Rosemont with the car on Wednesday and started setting up that night and finished Thursday morning. The show started on Friday and my brother came down with a friend that day. That night, the judging started and we were accepted into the top twenty, along with the car next to us. Our car show neighbors turned out to become very good friends of ours; they were the nicest people and we hope to see them again soon.

When we walked into the show on Saturday morning, there was a large banner standing on the ground right next to the mustang. The banner read,”Select Six.” My dad was instantly on cloud 9 because that meant the Shelby was one of the top six at the show. My dad said that was a once in a lifetime achievement and he never believed that he would build something that would be in the select six. We went to a banquet for it on Saturday night and there was a cool video showing the six cars and Dan Heller received a nice award and jacket that had a select six emblem on it. Dad also received a $1000 gift certificate to Billet Specialties. It was an amazing weekend that our family will never forget and I’m so glad I went to support my dad.
