SBR, did you have a '67 at the event, and did we have conversation?

Yes we did, it was great to visit with you and to see your car again. I did have a car there, it was the red on red 67 435 convertible.

Yes, I was pretty sure that was you! This is the best pic I have of your fine red '67 in the background, but it deserves sharing here!!

It was great to meet up with old friends...and make some new friends too!!

Thank you Jake!! I must say that your family has set the bar in the stratosphere of family car stores!!

Here's a few more, including Paul and Yvonne, also the interior and chassis judging teams at work. Did I mention that the operations judging scored 100%?

When this car was new it was the "Grocery Getter", they were just cars...
A week before the wedding (February) Yvonne slid off a snow covered road into the ditch. A neighbor came by and found a crying Yvonne, sure that Paul would not marry her after wrecking his Corvette.
Well..it was a soft landing into a snow bank, no harm done, and a happy ending!

By coincidence, of the four '65's presented for judging, all were 300 HP. The was a '65 Fuelie coupe maroon/white interior Duntov Award winner displayed also. Seventy Corvettes in attendance, a great turn out for sure! Long distance award was from Massachusetts.
