I don't care what happens. I could care how many points a group of
"Judges" declare my car to represent. What is important to me is that I
like the way it looks and performs and if other participants also think
so, then great. But I don't care to have a group of people whose may or
may not be qualified to deliver an opinion about my car give me one.
After it is said and done, what difference will it make? On one end of
the scale they could say it was best and give me an award that I will
just have to dust. On the other hand they will say that the following
things are defective and it will just piss me off and I won't change
So I will put both my cars into the participants' choice show and let
people draw their own conclusions. If they like them, great. If not
that won't upset me because there are many cars I don't personally like
but they do and that is what counts.
In short, to each his own!

Since neither of may cars are built to factory standards, I don't think
that is advisable. Concours judging is for people who want to build a
car that has all the flaws that the factory had produced. I wanted my
cars to actually perform well and be comfortable in addition to looking
how I feel they should look. Therefore, I took liberties far beyond
what would ever buy e acceptable to a concours judge.
But that is exactly why the modified class was created. For cars like
yours that are prepared to a high standard of excelence - just not to
factory equipment. You should enter your car in Modified class and see
what happens. At the vary least go have a look at the Modified class
and see what kind of cars are entered.
