There are basically two categories professional and average guy judging.
Now I must confess here I don’t understand the professional, there is just too much to know. I frankly don’t know how some the of the larger shows can finish the judging – especially the contours judging. Whether there are the proper pre-assembly marks and is there the proper over-spray in the right places. I suppose thats great in some respects and I guess is can see the necessity.
But I’m the average guy muscle car owner. I like what I like and being judged by average peeps is ok by me. I’d like them to have some car knowledge but it’s still not that necessary.
I found it interesting that at one of the medium size shows one guy called the Mustang a Restro-mod. I wasn’t sure how I felt about that. It’s period – meaning it could have been ordered that way at the time. Only real change is the larger tires and Center Line wheels.
The latest Hemming’s Classic Car issue has interesting reading on the subject of “original/survivor cars” vs “everything else” I’ll do another post on that topic later on.
