    Default FIRST CALLAWAY AWARDED NCRS McLELLAN AWARD

    At the NCRS national convention held in ST. CHARLES MS. this past week,
    my 1989 B2K #35 was awarded the McLELLAN MARK OF EXCELLENCE award. This the first CALLAWAY to go all the way through the ncrs judging process. To qualify for this award the car has to first pass a performance verification, this is the most nerve wrecking judging anyone will ever go through. Every single function and operation on the car has to work as if the car had just come off the assembly line. As well as a 10 mile road test in which the car has to go 80 % of redline at least once.
    This can only be done at a regional or national convention. #35 passed at the regional in Novi MI. this past May. Reeves himself was there and came over to check out the first CALLAWAY to pass PV.
    After passing the PV the car is then judged at the nationals and has to score above 97%. With help from both Chris and Luigi , the judging went well and #35 scored a 99%.
    The editor of the NCRS RESTORER magazine took numerous pictures and will be writing an article for an upcoming issue. The car will be on the cover of the fall issue
    I look forward to seeing eveyone in carlisle.

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    Having been through this process with my '69 (for that era it's called the Duntov Award, but it is the same process), I can definitely appreciate this feat. It takes quite a car and owner to make it all the way through the process. You are correct, the PV is definitely the toughest - you never know what mechanical gremlins will show up unexpectedly.

    This is definitely something to be proud of!
