I've never been more embarrassed by this club that by what just happened today. 
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. 

Well, he does have the original Firestone 6.50-13
tire in the spare location, complete with the two felt pads protecting the metal
underneath, the molding plugs unmolested.  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.  

You will never see
a car in more original and new condition as this one.  To call it modified
because he didn't drive it here on 52 year old bias belt tires is insane. 

CORSA is insane.
