Judging is a cooperative process between car owners and
judges that is designed to assure that all cars are judged
efficiently and fairly. While judges will evaluate your
car as they would want their own car judged, a well-prepared
exhibitor who understands the judging process will assure
that their car is seen by the judges in the best possible
Here are some highlights about how the judges will interact
with an exhibitor:
- The team leader is the liaison between the exhibitor
and the other judges of his team. Only the team leader
may converse with the exhibitor. If another judge asks
you a question, please refer that judge to his team
leader. However, a judge may talk to an exhibitor before
and after judging.
- Only the team leader will ask that you demonstrate
something on your car.
- No judge will attempt to operate any component of
the car, except that the team leader may ask you if
he can operate the brake pedal and hand brake to check
the pedal travel. If you would rather do this yourself,
please tell the team leader beforehand.
- Before a judge can make a deduction for Authenticity;
he must discuss it with the team leader, who will then
discuss it with the exhibitor.
Here are some ways in which an owner or exhibitor can
help the judging process:
- You will be required to start the engine. If your
car starts better when its warm, its a good
idea to warm up the engine before the judging begins.
- You will be asked to demonstrate the operation of
all components such as lights, windshield wipers, radio,
power antenna, dash lights, interior lights, etc...
If your car has a convertible top or canopy, you will
also be asked to raise the top from the windshield frame
so that the judges can see that the mechanism works
- Some items such as vacuum-powered windshield wipers
must be checked while the engine is running. Before
turning the engine off, remind the team leader if some
item that requires that the engine be running has not
been checked. This will save you from having to start
the car again.
- All detachable items must be judged, even if they
are not installed on the car. This includes top boots,
side curtains and tonneau covers. Having these items
ready for inspection will help the judges.
- Remember that no deduction for Authenticity can be
made before the team leader discusses the issue with
Therefore, do not attempt to substantiate the authenticity
of anything unless the team leader asks you about it.
