NCRS National Convention 2007
Best Western Royal Plaza
Marlborough, MA

July 22-26, 2007

This was the largest, most successful NCRS Convention ever!

Tuesday July 24

Leaving home for Marlborough MA.

One of the first cars I spotted on the judging floor was this beautiful '63 belonging to
friend Bill Nichols. Bill is a high level engineer with GM Powertrain. It is great to see
someone so intimately involved in the development of the new Vettes so involved
with the restoration of the old ones!

This was my setup for the event: Out in the parking lot,
collection jug under the hood and brochures under the wipers.
