Past Events 2005

January 28-30, 2005
LAS RYDS HEARSE CLUB competed in the 
Windy City Club Challenge at the Chicago World of Wheels.
It was the first time this or any club has ever 
competed at the World of Wheels and we totally ROCKED!
We displayed 6 member hearses in a graveyard setting 
complete with cemetery gates and columns, mausoleum, 
talking mortician, haunted talking tree to tell the crowd all about LasRyds, 
and special visits from the Grim Reaper himself 
giving a few "safety" messages for the crowd...
little did we know that he's over 8 feet tall.  
Out of the many car clubs entered, LasRyds placed #1, yep, First Place!  
How's that for the underdogs coming out on top?

You can see a bunch of our pics at www.thanatophobialand.com/wow2005.htm
A very special thanks to Sue and Rick Rager for 
ALL of their hard work planning, building, 
and everything else to make this happen!  
Another thanks goes out to Bob Miller  
for his "nightmare" of us competing at World of Wheels 
and to everyone who displayed their hearses, 
helped set up and just provided moral support in this great event.  
We'll be back next year!
