The '63 White Monza Lambrecht car was classified into the Modified class for Concours - technically correct due to the incorrect size of his whitewall radial tires, but grossly incorrect for what is probably the last most perfect factory original car we will ever see again.  Mark Corbin and I made a personal appeal to the Concours chair to - just this one time - override the rule book and give this car the recognition it deserves, but he stood on the letter of the law and refused to reconsider.

All the rubber moldings, bumpers, etc are in pristine, soft condition, the metal trim shiny bright, even has the drips and droops of glue and goop where the factory left them.
