My 69 has been judged by them up to winning a "Preservation" award.
A lot of those "judges" really don't know Camaros, about what is right, and what is not.........just like the AACA.....they just know what its "supposed to look like".....
Back then, I got into a lot of "heated exchanges" between a few of those so-called judges. So much, I would bring McNeish's book and show them what something is supposed to look like.
Personally, awards from the AACA & VCCA are nothing by notariety awards.......IMO and we all have one.
I leave all the badges / awards at home....I don't think they mean anything.
If you want an award that means something....win at the Camaro Nationals.......at least the judges know something about what they're looking at.
