I saw the progress this car made from filthy to factory perfect on the web. Truly amazing to have a factory brand new 52 year old car.  To deny this car itsproper place is utterly ridiculous. I have usually defended CORSA in the pastand encouraged people to join, but it is things like this that drive peopleaway.  CORSA wonders why membership is shrinking.  Stupid stuff like this ispart of the problem. Sticking to the letter of the law?  It's a car event, not areligion.
