For the overall loser (I've got my eye on that one!), for the 'best dressed', i.e. customised/paint job, and one called the 'Piston Broke' trophy, which is given to the member who's actual classic car has had the worst luck leading up the rocker box race night. Last time for example a Model T owner won that as he had made his way to a local show but just couldn't get the car running to come home, later on he realised that he put the wrong fuel in the car! Previous winner was an MG ower who managed to put the jack head through the radiator as he was lifting the car. It is of course a trophy I definitely don't wish to win.
Completely off topic, but reminded me of the rally driver who's Escort stopped dead on a stage. Navigator got out, opened the bonnet and said "Ah, the alternator's knackered". "No worries, we have a spare" says the driver. Back comes the reply, "No, it's got a con-rod through it".

Hehe, now that's definitely worthy of the 'Piston Broke' award Martin!

Well, it was the latest Rocker Box Race meet last night, pics below. Mine's the Starsky & Hutch tribute (with working flashing siren!) It was really good fun. Thank you again Tom.
