The contest is down to the final 10 days.  So if you have not already, this is just about the last chance to vote and/or comment.

I am keeping my fingers crossed.  Makes it hard to drive the sled, but I am hoping it is worth it.

 Yes, good luck. It seems your Invader has kept a substantial lead through this contest.

I was hoping to hear and/or see something as the contest was advertised to close on February 28.  Nothing. Then today I spot on the web site that the contest has been extended until the end of March.  Not sure what is up here.  But I am thinking that there are now another 25 days for me to get votes.  So feel free to reach out to family and friends. :-)

Good morning.  If everything holds true to the information on the Sledbuild web site, the contest is now in its final days and will end at the stroke of midnight on Sunday, March 31.

By popular vote, the green sled is still ahead.  But it will all depend upon the electoral college.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Good morning.

The results are in and unfortunately, the electoral college had other ideas.

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement and support.

At least one of the winners has a Kawasaki engine. https://www.sledbuild.com/winners/

 Wow, I thought you were kidding about the Electoral College earlier.
i thought the most votes would determine the winner.
 Oh well, you had a tremendous entry that obviously had a lot of support.
That Rolloflex sled that won the "electoral college" is pretty cool too.

I see that another Kawasaki has been entered.  A very nice looking sled!

The 82 LTD that is a beautiful sled.  I posted my daughter's pink sled last week.  For some reason it still has not shown up on the Sled Build site.  Did you  have any trouble viewing the site?  In my browser I am only seeing a few of the sleds.  But, if I use  the link to the green sled it takes me right to it.

I am getting a little confused.  I submitted the pink sled a week ago and in that week I have seen no updates or new sled on the Sled Build site.
