Saturday evening found us at the Joint AMCRC & Marlin Club’s Awards Banquet.   Seventy guests were on hand for the event.  Noted author and historian Patrick Foster treated us to a wonderfully entertaining and informative presentation on the evolution of the Rambler into Motor Trend’s “1963 Car of the Year”.  Chris Ziemnowicz of the Marlin Club produced a slide show featuring the winner’s cars to accompany the award presentations and the dinner was capped off by a lively auction.   Joe Liption, Vice President of the Marlin Club served as auctioneer for their club.   The Met New York/New Jersey's own Vanna White (Rosemarie Stathes) helped raised over three hundred dollars for their chapter!
