Chris Conway's 1981 Imperial spends some quality time with Donald Taccone's 1956 Imperial sedan. The scenery was a perfect backdrop for a wonderful gathering of cars and enthusiasts. Chris Hawkins' 1960 Chrysler New Yorker Town and Country.  The car was "in process" at this time, and Chris has done a wonderful job of restoring it.

Cecil McCall owned this stunning 1964 Ghia Crown Imperial limousine.  The car was "updated" by the original owner with a '66 grille.

Chris Hawkins owns this 1966 Imperial LeBaron and this 1966 Imperial Crown convertible.

Elijah Scott's 1971 Imperial LeBaron.


Patrick West's 1976 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham and Christopher Conway's 1978 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham.

This 1981 Imperial was owned by Christopher Conway.

Many people made it to the show without Imperials, but still enjoyed the gathering of Imperial enthusiasts.  Especial thanks to Chris Hawkins for providing use of the SCIS grounds -- his generous support for these meets is greatly appreciated.  Kudos also go to Chris Bunthoff and Patrick West for helping with refreshments and other arrangements.

Most of all, THANKS to EVERYONE who attended -- the cars were fantastic, but it's definitely the people that make these gatherings so enjoyable.
