Leisa Chinnock – 1986 XF Falcon For anyone building a super, high-end show car, there’s few awards more prestigious than Summernats Top Judged Elite. It really does take truly spectacular machine to take out this award. Having previously taken out this gong at Summernats 25, and now again at Summernats 27, Leisa Chinnock’s PSYCHO Falcon joins an exclusive club of four that have scored Top Judged Elite twice. Other members include Frank Rejtano with his 1964 Corvette (Summernats 7 and 8), Bruno Gianoncelli with his 1950 Mercury, Murcules (Summernats 19 and 20) aw ell as Howard Astill with his Rock Solid Falcon (Summernats 4) and Race Rock (Summernats 13).
To take out this coveted award, Leisa’s radically modified, chopped, two-door XF Falcon beat out a quality field that included Peter Fitzpatrick’s past Top Judged Elite winner and six-times Grand Champion 1959 Holden FC, along with Terry Mourched’s wicked 1968 Dodge Charger and Nathan Borg’s stunning 1977 Datsun 1200 ute.
