Congratulations on the award! I`m not much into points, judging, and awards.... but I KNOW it takes a lot of work & dedication to achieve one! Great job! And the pictures are fantastic.....LOVE seeing a classic Vette out on the road. And I really enjoyed some of the vintage settings, too! Thanks for posting!

Congratulations on your National Top Flight Award. What a great looking Corvette too! It's nice to see that you drive and enjoy your Corvette. Thanks for sharing those great photos too. I especially like the one pictured here. Talk about a perfect classic "Americana" Post Card. Coca-cola and a Classic White Chevrolet Corvette. An NCRS NTF one at that!!
Congratulations again!
Tooch

PS- I'm thinking you may have a new avatar photo in the future!

Congratulations on this significant achievement!

I know how much work goes into this and I also know how much you learn about your car through this experience. Can you tell us about the judging experience you had in Texas?

Congratulations Revi! This is an amazing accomplishment for someone who drives his car to NCRS meets.

I would still like to see your car (maybe when it cools down a little) this fall so I can see just how I have to go.

I am embarrassed for you to even look at my C3 now.
