Inola, OK
Entries thread is here. https://gbodyforum.com/threads/feb-21-entries-sleepers.80672 entries are listed here in the order they were posted in this thread.

Vote using the poll, which will close on Feb. 1 about 10:40AM central

Winner gets on the home page, and on the FB page (and the twitter header but I need to remember that so b*tch me out if I don't lol)... and one T-shirt with the car on it (see last month's winner thread for more) that will be in the shop ...

so GO

Unlike many other threads I feel this one really needs people to read what's been done to the cars...

Don't vote for a BEATER.

Vote for the car actually packing something it doesn't look like it is

That was the description I was going for in the entries thread, but that one is much much clearer. 6 of one half dozen the other etc. 🤷‍♂️ Like I said there, you guys know what it means.

Too busy driving and dragging mine to paint it. I see your point. Didn’t vote for me.🤪

Wasn't targeted to any car in particular. But in the original post thread there were a handful of cars that aren't really sleepers that went through nominations. A couple were beaters, were shiny but slower than the offspring of a carry and civic would be, or some cross in-between.

One difficult thing about the idea of a sleeper is what expectation do you tie it to? The average driver on the road these days has no idea how slow so many of these cars were stock and that your baseline 2021 Kia or fiat is probably faster. . .

I'd bet gbodies get 'over-rated' in terms of ability at the stop light in 2021. If anything, that probably means many a sleeper in 1985, or 1995 has 'expected performance' and thus isn't deceiving anyone these days.

The bar has been raised methinks.
