Saturday was consumed by the

popular vote car show. There were a

lot of cars brought to the convention

that haven’t been seen before, either

because past conventions were not

convenient locations for a car owner or

the car was only recently completed.

No matter; seeing some of these cars

up close made attending the conven-

tion worthwhile.

The voting ended at 12 noon and

by 2 p.m. the trophies were awarded

and cars were being pulled into trail-

ers or GPS systems were being set for

“go home.” Of course, there was still

vintage racing going on. The SVRA’s

schedule called for a race on Saturday

afternoon and another one of Sunday

afternoon for anyone who did not get

their fill of unmuffled race engines.


Having a SAAC convention during an SVRA weekend provides the opportunity to see race cars that would not otherwise be displayed

at a convention. The Can-Am McLaren [


] was powered by a fuel-injected Boss 429 engine. Dan Gurney’s Lola T-70 was moti-

vated by a small block Gurney-Weslake engine.

Ron Desko of Fairview, Pennsylvania brought his super-slick 427-

powered Falcon. Ladder bars look exactly like the ones Bill

Stroppe built for Shelby’s drag GT350s.
