Ha, completed all the paperwork in time for this morning's concourse.
Since I was the only car in Competition Prepared - FIRST PLACE.
Is that a fact? well i believe it was last year (not sure) when a gentlemen with a TOTALLY ORIGINAL 67 sprint veloce in almost flawless condition imported straight from Rome, Italy except for a few tears on the interior went home with nothing!! I had a conversation with him and we arrived at the same conclusion. All the judges know each other and they judge each others cars and surprise surprise they end up winning. I find it pretty funny though when you ask a judge what they are EXACTLY looking for and how to improve your score you never really get a straight answer.90Quad said:Paul, you haven't signed your corrupt judge conspiracy member forms and completed the 10 min. Enron unethical training video course. That is why you haven't won with your cars. Remember, a concourse has nothing to do with a car being as close as possible to the way the factory originally made it in terms of accurate parts and cleanliness. In fact, we are considering adding a new bling bling category, in which case I'll chrome my seats and put onethumb's to shame.

Just one man's opinion, but having as many possible points for cleanliness as for originality is absurd.90Quad said:Lets say there are 2 scoring divisions for judging the engine compartment – 10pts for cleanliness and 10pts for originality. Now, for our example lets say there are two cars—one engine is totally original but the owner has made no attempt to clean it and it is very dirty. The second one has been fully detailed but has 5 glaring modifications including painting some items pink. The first car might get 10 pts for originality and 0 for cleanliness for a total of 10. The second might get 5 pts deducted for the modifications in the originality category and get 10 pts for cleanliness for a total of 15 pts. Now it might seem odd to some that the engine with the modifications and pink parts wins, but when you look at the breakdown it makes sense. Also, judges work in groups of 2 to counter any individual biases. The way the score categories work also makes it difficult to figure out who will have a higher score until the judges total them at the end.
