Congrats on the score. What did the judges decide on the trim rings?
As Mike asked, what did the judges decide on the trim rings?
Apparently Scott is still celebrating his gold..
but I know a lot of us are interested in what the judges are doing re the trim rings... and I don't have the bottom line answer either, but what I heard (second or third hand) before we left is that 'the judges are accepting 'both' kinds'... not sure exactly what this means, other than the judges (as a team) aren't certain what the cars left the factory with.
IMO, this issue needs to be clarified, with photos of each kind (because there's a 3rd kind that is clearly not original - at least to me). That 3rd kind with the four 'claws', not clips, I *think* may have been what Scott had on his car in 2013. I think the two kinds they are currently accepting are the 4 clips (on the outer edge of the rings), and the continuous 'finger' type, but it would sure we good if someone who has better information on what the judges determination was ... would speak up with some details and why they are accepting the two kinds right now..?
My personal opinion is that the factory only used the 4-clip (which clips to the outer rim edge) thru 1969 - which I'm confident is what my Z28 came with, and sometime in '70 or later began using the finger style (my '77 MC had the finger style).
