  1. Best in Show Automotive: Kevin Intzeller, 1951 Chevy
    ??any chance you could correct my name to Iutzeler?? You have it spelled wrong in the automotive categories, but spelled right in aircraft ((Check in A-8)) Thanks in advance.

    1. Kevin, thanks for catching that– I spelled it right once, but wrong about five times! I’ve corrected them now.
