  1. I have a photo of my Grandfather and Miss Georgia from the 50’s. He’s driving the official car for Miss Georgia. The car is from my grandfather’s dealership Cornelia Motors. I am trying to figure out which Miss Georgia it is. There is no information on the back of the photo. There is clearly posted on the drivers door “Official Car of Miss Georgia” and has my grandfathers dealership on the sign as well. I posted the photo on my FB and a couple of my friends replied back who have done a bunch of pageants and had personal friends who were 1961 and 1969 Miss Georgia. They seem to think its you in the photo. If it’s you I’d love to send it to you. I lived in Georgia originally, but have spent the last 23 in Los Angeles.
