This year John Young placed First, again, in the Corvair class with his '66 140 Monza. Second place was won by Frank Pella and Joe Hiller a took home the 3rd place trophy. Charlie Evans' V8 Monza won the Best Daily Driver trophy. It was a great day if your car was BLUE!!! Ron Bloom and Jim Mills both received Certificates of Merit.
