An Explanation

This website has been created so we could share the story of the show car, Heavy Metal, which has been entered in numerous car shows, in various incarnations, beginning in 1998 and continuing until the present day.    The website is presented in a manner very similar to the booklet which was created for judges at each of the car shows.  We hope you enjoy it.
