Got 2nd place this weekend

Post by Laguna Budman on Sun Feb 19, 2012 7:17 pm

Put my car in it's first show this weekend and got second place. Wasn't very happy with my location but I was the very last car to arrive due to finishing touches on it. I was put in the Custom Muscle class 69-74. I will post pics of the top 5 in my class in order.

Thanks Limey. That Camaro has been in the show 8 straight years. I think my paint was better but you get points on display and obviously his is way better as I didn't have one. Oh well time to drive it now and enjoy it. Just little show and shines now I think. To much work for those big shows.

To be honest with you I forgot how much work it was. The last time I showed a car it was my 63 Nova SS in 1994. Wow don't need that hassle, I'll just do show and shines now.

Wow that was some stiff competition. Its nice to see one our cars put up against the typical muscle and do well. Good Job. Why are those shows alot of work? Do you have to detail the car out?

Some car show people will complain to you if you have dirt on the panel beneath the battery tray, I had it happen to me. JB

Yes you have to detail very well. For instance I had a door closed and my trunk closed and a friend who used to be a judge told me if I didn't have them at least popped I would lose points due to the fact they would count as unfinished. You have to have everything clean and showing. My downfall was no display and the judges couldn't judge my underside (which is very clean by the way) because my car is so low.
