A true gem: A 1939 Lincoln Zephyr that was owned by Pete Golightly, a former longtime serice manager for Thorobred Chevrolet in Chandler, will be among the 100-plus cars on display at the Thorobred Thunder XIII All-Chevy Car Show at Thorobred Chevrolet in Chandler on Saturday. Golightly passed away last year before the car show, and this year, his wife is putting his car on display. This Zephyr has a small-block Chevy engine in it.
