Default Fall AutoFair - They liked red this year!

I attended AutoFair here in Charlotte this past weekend and won best C3 and Best of Show for our club, I was stunned! Must have been that $50 I slipped the judges.... ..... KIDDING!

The yellow C3 owned by my bud Karl is a show winner too.... I got lucky!

Hi RMV,
What a terrific looking car!
I can understand why it was a winner!!
Regards,
Alan

I'm thinking 71?
Or maybe a late 70?

As a group (NCRS) we were very lucky to have had the opportunity to run laps around that track. I ran two of my cars there, the '71 WB and the '72 Bryar Blue car. Too funny, I ran out of gas on the last last in the blue car and coming around the last turn, I made it right up to that Sunoco fill station in your picture! Looked like I planned it! No one knew what had happened and lucky for me a friend had a gallon of gas with him, as the Sunoco was closed....


Thanks for the memory!

Thanks Alan, it's not of the same class as yours though!

It's a late build '70, L46 with no other options except the AM/FM radio however I added power steering during the restoration.

Thanks, I worried that the redlines clashed with the paint but I think it worked out. When I bought the car in 1999, it was silver. The car original color was Monza Red so during the restoration I researched and found one of that color and didn't like it because it looked more orange than red. So I chose Rally Red which was a '65 thru '68 color. I also found out that the paint code for Rally Red in the '68 is 974, the same code for Monza Red in '70....so you could say I have the correct paint code for the car...wrong year though..
