Don't let the fact that a Gold level Concours car that had a non-hyphenated
badge mean that it's gospel and correct for that car. You dont know:
1. if there was a deduction for that detail during the judging, or
2. if it was known to the judges whether the hyphen detail was absolutely
known at that point in time. The accuracy of known details is continually
evolving and being more sharply defined each year.
Further, there has been no such thing as a perfect 1000 point Gold level
car. Also keep in mind that a car can lose 49 points out of 1000 and still
be within Gold.
