It is an award given out at one of the custom car shows in Detroit, I beleive Autorama. Rides had an episode on it last year, and a guy from a small town near Chicago won it. I beleive that it is among the top awards in the Hot Rod industry, and there are strict qualifications on the cars that are entered and the judging is pretty intense. I seem to remember that it has to be the first show that a car is in or something like that.

You couldn't find any web info because you misspelled it. Check here:Don Ridler Memorial Award

The cars that compete for this award are high dollar pieces of art. Most are built by pro shops for a rich owner (or a group of owners), but a few are still being built by amatures. The street rod world has advanced so far, that these cars bear almost no relation to hot rods - they are built for show. They're fun to look at, but they've bastardized the hobby. The cars will never see a drag strip, and most won't even be driven on the street for the first year or two!

Am I the only one that thought it just a little bit weird that Batman takes his pants (tights) off when he hears mention of the Riddler?

Both Cesar Romaro and Nicholson are pretty scary.

Sorry, but I believe you are talking about the Joker:

Cesar Romero:


or Jack Nicholson:



Which Riddler are you referring to:

Frank Gorshin (Which I believe was the best Riddler)


John Astin (better in the Adams Family)


or Jim Carrey
