For 2 days now I cannot get this video to play or other ones on you tube. I tried restarting my computer. Using Chrome and Microsoft browsers and still the ring of death. Anyone else have you tube issues?

Can anyone name the owners of all the cars in the MCR display? Dean Ricci owned the white 70 convertible. Carl Galietti owned the factory black 69 Mach1 and the paint was acrylic enamel and PERFECT-always won for the paint. He bought the car as an 18 year old Ford intern in 1969. I wonder if the red Pantera was Brian Federov's car. The blue 69 Shelby looks familiar but can't put a name to the owner.  I'm surprised Vito's 67 GT500 wasn't part of the display. Thanks for posting the video. I sent it to Kurt Frederickson to watch to see if he remembers more.

pics from FB Shelby 67 research page. I know at least 4 owners that were there. READ the text and see the auction results there for Shelbys auctioned off. I remember those days where you had a car show and auction at Autorama.

The story of this video, I was researching '67 stuff and on a non-automotive Michigan history page, a man posted it.  He said he'd been going through some unknown and unnamed boxes of crap and when sorting, he found the VHS tape, which is in good shape, played it and transferred it into digital form for upload to YouTube.  He has no affiliation with the tape so no knowledge, other than he thought it looked cool, which was a correct assessment!

Thanks so you are Bill on the research page. I was somewhat involved with SAAC-MCR back then and knew a some of people(still do) that were in the club and showed their cars in that video.
