Too many "tire bargains" are years old when sold "new".
Check  those DOT dates!

Six out of our twelve are in the recall.
And don't  foget the extinguishers  on boats. Kidde sells a lot  to boat manufacturers.

Phil, do you know how the HP class was determined for Camaros? My '67 will never be on a show field at AACA but I hardly consider it to be HP even though it has 325. I know they have to to decide " something" just not sure they did the right thing. I would hardly feel my car deserves to be with solid lifter cars and Yencos.
I know the VP of Judging used a committee, which got input from a variety of other Chevy (and Olds) "experts". Frankly, I was just glad to get the class after years of requests.
You have to remember that setting a class doesn't just have to work into the brand or brands it covers, but it also has to work within the guidelines which work to be inclusive. For example, there were also Chevelles, Impalas, and Olds 442s in 36B at Hershey this year.

As Doug knows the 327 was originally in class 27, production vehicles. When the HP classes were created a few years ago there was an effort to make a Camaro inclusive class. In the previous class 27 a Z would  be in the same  class as a six banger.
Thus, in the end Kurt is right. Got to put them somewhere.
Unrestored original cars go in HPOF, historic preservation. Drivers are in DPC, driver participation. Both of these classes have different guidelines and are evaluated, not point judged.

Okay, I'm posting this 68 convertible to make an observation.
It is a 327: yes, with a four barrel, but a PG transmission.  Most of us would say "That's not an HP car with a PG transmission." 
Well, AACA does not consider transmission in determining classes and does consider a 275 hp car to be High Performance.
I spoke with the owner since my 68 is in the same position.  He did get the award he was after, as did my car several years ago.

Thought I'd post some of the Camaros from Class 36B, High Performance Chevrolet and Oldsmobile.

If you come in the front of the Speedway through the stands, make sure you look at the Blue Field (to your right). Most of the new ROVAL road course is in place, even though the first race is not until 2018. Of course, much of it will be covered by vendors, but I think you can get a good idea of the looping turns which run through the infield.

Isn't there another tornado coming?  8) Hope you have a good week, see you at Hershey?
I'll be there from Wednesday on. Hope to be judging 36B again. The HP classes get larger attendence every year at Hershey.

Really depends on the mission and purpose of the magazine.
Interestingly, I have seen articles where the owner supplied inaccurate information.
There are still some young, knowledgeable editors/writers out there. But you are right seems like far less than there used to be.
