Grab Bag Rally plaque
From "Valley News", July 12 and July 19, 1968:
Accessories Unlimited "Grab Bag Mark 4". Gimmick-fun rally. Starts 7:30 p m., Sepulveda Dam Recreation Center, Burbank Balboa Blvd., Encino. Fee: $4 includes DP, jacket patch many gifts. Open to all cars. Information: 787-0461.

The dash plaque picture is from Jeff Allen in Massachusetts, USA. He found this piece when disassembling the door of his 1960 MGA roadster for restoration. The plaque is 1 1/4 X 2 3/4 inches and made out to metal. The newspaper note is five years and three runnings of the event later than the plaque, but it lets us know the nature of the event. The Accessories Unlimited catalog photo is from an eBay ad.
