Our first place winner! Congratulations to Terry Lassiter for his first place win of the 2020 Sandhills Motoring Festival Virtual Car Show! His prize 1972 Pontiac LeMans has a very special history as it was purchased as a father son project to do together. Unfortunately, his son, 18, passed the same day they took possession of the car. It was restored by Terry to his son's exact standards. A bittersweet restoration but it's all about his son: Brian's dream.

Year: 1972
Make: Pontiac
Model: Lemans

Terry wins two tickets to the SMF BBQ and Informal Car Show, taking place at the Pine Crest Inn in Pinehurst, NC on Friday, Sept. 4th, 2020, congratulations once again!

In Second Place for the SMF-VCS 2020, Congratulations to Chip Wright and his 1931 Springfield Rolls Royce!

Year: 1931
Make: Springfield Rolls Royce
Model: Phantom I Newmarket Convertible Sedan
Owner's Description:
The car is mostly original retaining its original body paint, interior and chrome work. The fenders have been resprayed. The body has never been separated from the chassis since it was created in 1931. Originally delivered November 3, 1931 to W.W. Volhard of Cincinnati, Ohio. Mr. Volhard was the president of the Eagle Leather and Counter Company in Cincinnati. The following year the car was sold to John S. Swift of the meat packing company Swift Meats. The car was then sold to D. Cameron Peck, an early pioneer of car collecting focused primarily on Rolls Royce cars. There were several other owners prior to my purchase in 2017 from Robert Evans of Massachusetts. It was also once owned by Frank Cooke, owner of the Vintage Garage, a premiere restoration facility of Rolls Royce motorcars. One of 67 Newmarket convertible sedans produced from 1927 to 1932 by the Springfield MA factory of Rolls Royce, it is one of only four divider window convertible sedans produced, a very unusual feature in a convertible. As with most fine cars of the day, this car was delivered as a rolling chassis to Brewster Coachworks to produce the body for this beautiful example. Weighing in at almost three tonnes it is powered by a 7.6 liter straight six engine producing a bit over 100 H.P. it cruises comfortably at highway speeds thanks to the overdrive unit fitted. A wonderful example of the opulence and high quality engineering Rolls Royce Motorcars are known for.

In Third Place for the SMF-VCS 2020, Congratulations to Lawrence Baxter and his 1969 Jaguar!
Year: Dec. 1969, first registered 10970
Make: Jaguar
Model: E-type Series II OTS (known more commonly in America as an “XKE”
Owner's Description: I acquired this vehicle from upstate New York in 2014 and thereafter had it fully restored. It has a factory hard top and triple SU carbs (permitted in England but not in the US at that time). It is therefore more powerful than unmodified similar US models. It drives like a dream!
