AMC TAKES TOP HONORS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kevin's exquisite Jav takes the GOLD
Randy was there and tells it well -
Boy, all the AMC guy's were stunned. The 1970 BBG Donohue bowled them
over. And with *honesty* this Mopar club awarded the trophy to the best car
there. No one would have thought they would ''allow'' an AMC to win the BIG
prize. The neat deal is, all the publicity shots AMC will get because of this.
This Mopar club always pictures last year's winner on everything for the next

But.... Others did well
too. We had a couple of 2nd place winners as well. Brian Tolley got a runner up
with his beautiful 1969 AMX. [doh.. but popped the driveshaft, motor mount,

hobby's part to deal with AMC on a positive basis. Some AMCers avoid Mopar
shows. I don't understand why. This should open the door a little wider.
