Show Those Car Show Awards!

Recommended Posts

Can anyone answer me this? Why do people display trophies at car shows?

I never did that, personally think its a little tacky and desprite. Its like saying hey I've won before loooky now please let me win again

:blink: i think that it is very tacky. it isnt about how many trophies you have won previously, its about how nice you car is at that specific show.

Hang in there, you'll get many more. The trophies shown in Coolman's room are from the Vette, not the G6. I have a whole attic filled with them, but then again, I was showing the Vette before most folks on this forum were born, including Coolman :D;)

I still have the "Best In Show" trophy that I won on the day that Coolman took his first steps :o

I came home and sat on the couch and put the trophy on the floor in front of me and Coolman was on the other side of the living room propped up by the fireplace. When he saw that trophy, he let go and walked across the floor, like Frankenstein, till he got to the trophy and grabbed onto it. The kid got good taste and the rest is history. My first car show was in 1977!!!

ya i still have a long way to go before i stop. im trying my best to keep at it though. even though i have a vibe, that doesn't mean i can't build a great show car. :)

my kids are young as well and all look at the trophies and want to play with them. kind of starting off in the same boat as you. well congrats on all of the awards! too bad i can't see the vette in person since i live so far.

There is a key to winning and that is CLEAN! haha

A lot of judges don't know particular mods or what has been modified a particular way. Most will judge on the most base aspects. Number one being cleanliness. If the car looks and FEELS like it just rolled off the assembly line, then you are well on your way. You have to be crazy about it. Nooks and crannies where no one looks and the usually dirty areas of the car like the wheels and wheel wells. If you can find dirt or buildup on your car then so can they. Condition of paint matters too...claybar is a godsend for prepping before polish and sealant/wax. A must do!

Before a major show(the ones you pay money to be in), I would take 3 days off of work and have a checklist of areas to clean. Which would include craziness like cleaning and waxing the underside of the car and even removing the tail lights to clean the body area behind them.

Chaos,

your car deserves to have more trophies, so go out and hit as many shows as you can and start stacking them up. You'll meet a lot of cool people in the process too.

Trust me, I do. Sadly most judges are very car biased on LI car shows. Judges will really favor cars for what they are, IE T/As, Mustangs, Corvettes etc. Oddball cars like mine? They quickly look over, and don't care if it's modded. On top of that, they don't know how to classify mine, so I get lumped in with cars that easily overshadow my own, it's depressing and fustrating at the same time.
