I would think judging covers only what can be seen. Thread size ???
How about original 260 block bored .30 over ? Whos gonna know
and how many really aren't bored out in a rebuild ?
I'm certainly the new kid aroud here but I would think a beautiful
clear coat paint job should lose to a nice patina original paint job.
Or a beautiful repo badge would lose to a very good original one.
I would think good looking proper steel screws would beat perfect stainless
I'm interested in opinions from those who have been judged or are judges.
