The two car shows I have gone to this year were put on by two different local corvette clubs and a percentage of all trophies go to corvettes. However the judging beyond that is scored based on appearance/cleanliness first -- then type of car.
I took home a top 50 twice this year so far -- Mine is not stock but I spent a day at a car show with a good friend on a real hot fathers day and his car is a stock very, very clean 70k mile white '03 Cadillac SLS. He is proud of his caddy and has wanted one his whole life (he just turned 70) I helped him find this clean one 6 years ago and it has brought him pleasure like my SSR brings me! I would have given up my trophy so he could get one - but I didn't have too! he won on his own
Of course I live in Ohio where SSRs and Older low mileage Cadillacs are not common like they are in other states.
And before @Firetruck can speak out-- there were more people that went home WITHOUT a trophy then went home with one!
So first off in my experience clean it and then detail it! and when you think your done - do it again!
Around here all the car shows are put on by several major custom car clubs and the policy is in order to participate officially your car has to be a 1985 or older model. They are all very polite and let me park in the show, hood up, lawn chair etc. Get a chance to visit with all the motor/gear heads but I am not actually in the show. Still a fun day and you get to answer all kinds of questions and just have a good old time.What does it take for a stock SSR to win a :trophy: at a local car show?
Maybe they were impressed with the .44 Mag in your belt. :glolNot sure what it proves but one trophy I won at a "Public" show was Best Special Interest. Shocked the heck out of me when they called my number because there were 7 SSRs there and mine was a daily driver and higher mileage than most and there were several older restorations in the category. Still not sure why I won but will never turn down a trophy. The public got to vote in that one, as well as the entrants. I know for sure I did not vote for any of the SSRs in Special Interest because the Antiques Restorations were so good.
