Dear Dinosaur followers,
As most of you already know, the Cavallino 25 tried to have most of the previous 25 years Best of Show winners on display this year. The blue car was invited as it took that trophy in 09. Was another good car show day as my voice was about gone by the end of the day, but it was really windy and quite cold.
On Sunday we took the car to the Classic Sports Sunday at Mar-A-Lago. An amazing collection of all sorts of makes were there. At the gorgeous luncheon buffet they passed out awards. Surprisingly the blue car won not only the Class Excellence Award but it also garnered the Best Competition Car Award. Total surprise as I thought we were there as a previous Best Comp Car winner from 09 as well, but it turns out that all entrants are judged at the CSS. Now I have to find room for two more big trophies.
Totally unrelated to the awards was the fact that all of the Cavallino 25 Staff wore name badges which all contained a shot of the blue car in the background. Spoke to an event organizer and it was randomly chosen from literally dozens of photos. The one in the photo was gifted to me as another memento.
Will post more photos from both events later.
