The 2009 CORSA Convention was held in Jacksonville, Fl on July 13-17. The convention was held at the Wyndham Jacksonville River Walk along side the St John's River. Events included the Concours and car display which was setup along the river. Featured this year was the 1969 model as this was the 40th anniversary of the model year.

The Econo Run travelled lots of scenic back roads and highways eventually making its way over to the coast and eventually Amelia Island. The ride was very scenic with some upgrade, some freeway, small town squares and open flat road. A ferry crossed the river and the cars filled up to see who won.

The Autocross was held in St Augustine at the First Coast Technical Center training course. This is a drivers training course for Police, Fire and First Responders. As usual at this location Fast Eddie created a great course. Unlike parking lot autocrosses you really couldn't get lost.

Other events included a rally and the banquet. Of course there were lots on vendors, both inside and outside. On display were one of the earliest 1960's and the last known 1969.
