The last time the Toronto Maples Leafs won the coveted Stanley Cup NHL Championship was in 1967. That would mark the last Cup tournament held among the "Original Six" National Hockey League teams. Toronto mucked through a so-so regular season, finishing third with 75 points, 19 points behind the first-place Montreal Canadiens. But, in the playoffs, things fell into place. Toronto beat Chicago in five games in the semi-finals. In the final against Montreal, the Leafs snapped a 2-2 series deadlock by upsetting the Canadiens at the Montreal Forum. They clinched the Cup in six games.

This 1967 Corvette L-88 (one of only
20 L-88s built in 1967) made its racing

to the track from the airport (in place of
 being trailered) because the trailer
was chuck full of parts!
Maybe you own one of the other 19 L-88s?
