Linda Keel's LIA Magazine award winning '55

Julia and I met the Keel's 19 years ago when we did a photo shoot on George's '34 Chevy coupe for another magazine, and then bumped into them again this past September after going all these years and not seeing them. We were so impressed with Linda's '55, we picked her car for the LIA award, a custom all billet aluminum trophy with the LIA Lady anodized in pink with a billet base at the Shades of the Past Hot Rod Roundup # 29 car show at Dollywood's Splash Country in Pigeon Forge, Tn. This was our second year in a row at the Shades of the Past where we presented our LIA Lady award, an award that is given to a lady owned vehicle. We were honored to have given this award away last year to a very charming lady, Linda Keel and her very deserving and award winning '55.
