Awards for the 2018 LCOC Eastern National Meet in Bradenton, Florida were handed out on Saturday, May 5, at the evening banquet. Lincoln Trophies were given in 5 categories, along with a trophy for Best Custom Class Lincoln. Emeritus Awards were given to 3 owners.
One of the standout senior cars was a jade green and white car belonging to Paul and Mary Cubakovic of San Antonio, Florida that won the Ruth Trophy. The Elliston H. Bell Founder’s Trophy for the Outstanding Senior Lincoln was presented to owners John and Dorothy Palmer, who came all the way from Barnum, Minnesota, for their white with red interior 1976 Continental Mark IV. National Chief Judge Steve D’Ambrosia described both these cars as stunningly beautiful 1976 Mark IVs, saying that they looked like they had just come off a dealer’s showroom floor.
