Mr Carlson” was a auto shop teacher in Coquitlam BC Canada for many decades and did more to create lots of Carnuts than anyone I know. He is the president of the National Association of Auto Clubs of Canada and volunteers on many boards including the Lemay Museum. He is the Chief Judge for the Crescent Beach Invitational and the new Las Vegas Concours. He has judged for years at Pebble Beach.
Here is part of his “Bio” on the www.naacc.ca website
As promised here is the start of our directors profiles, starting with our President John Carlson
National President, CEO, Chief Judge, NAACC
John has been involved in the collector car hobby for more than 45 years. His motor sport experiences are as varied as his passion for high performance vintage track racing and concourse quality restorations. He is a hands-on restorer who does most of his own work. These areas have contributed to his extensive background and form the basis of his belief that research, hard work and attention to detail will allow anyone who has a dream to become part of the winner’s circle.
John is a three-time International High Point Record Holder and National Class Champion to the International Show Car Association of North America (ISCA) and a five-time recipient of the Specialty Equipment Market Associations (SEMA) “Most Outstanding Detailed Vehicle Award”. He was a “Best of Class” winner at the Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA) National Meet in Reno, Nevada and the first foreign participant to achieve this recognition. He has also been a Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) and Early Ford V/8 National 1st place winner many times.
