It has been brought to my attention recently that some of the generator/fan belts I have made are ending up on the engines for cars winning awards when being shown. I've known for some time now that high end restorers are now buying belts from me, as well as individuals who are restoring/maintaining their own cars. While I have never asked customers if they intend to put the belt on an engine or just use the belt in a tool kit, I also knew that some were going on the cars. Bravo! That's a great use of the belts.
Perhaps somewhere around 90% of the USA high end restorers are buying some of these belts, although I have never asked for permission to use their names, so until I cross that bridge, they will remain unnamed. However, I can say I am very proud to know that the list is really quite impressive.
This post is however not about professionally restored cars. It is about a couple of individuals who worked hard on the cars themselves and had professional help where needed to complete difficult tasks outside of their own skill set. This year, at least 2 cars received top honors in their groups where I am aware they had my generator/fan belt on the engine. Congratulations to these two owners!!! I would be very happy to hear from others.

2019 West Coast Holiday Winner: Mario Manzo.
Below is a shot of Mario's engine. His car was a joint effort with Matt Howard, Deluxe Customs.
Perhaps there were other winners and I would love to hear from them!
