I will be attending my first SCS next w/e in the 67-69 Street Class...Can anyone tell me what I should prepare for, for my first "big" show...I know the normal drill of cleaning everything and making it shine, but where do you draw the line.  What is really clean or clean enough...

I am pretty sure you will get plenty of good sound advise here, but just in case...send this person an email (Reggie) rftibbe@flash.net. He has judged these events for a long, long time. More importantly, he is a great all around guy and is always willing to help.

Good luck,
Marty

...And this is what they have on their website...
 
STREET CLASS
The Street Class includes all vehicles with bolt-on aftermarket or dealer installed parts and/or accessories. The body may have bolt-on spoilers. Ground effects, fiberglass parts, etc. Any molding of these items moves entry to Modified Class. Paint may be of any color from any OEM manufacturer. Aftermarket candy, pearl, metal flake paint entries will be moved to Modified. Painted pinstripes, and taped pinstripes or decals and vinyl graphics are allowed. Judging Supervisor will classify custom work. Other items that move an entry to Street Class include bolt-on headers. Ignition wires, air cleaners, valve covers, continental kits, painted engine compartment, etc. Any molding of any type (including firewall, inner fenders, panels, etc) will move entry to Modified Class. Minor interior changes are allowed (seat inserts, minor truck or truck bed modifications, and bolt-in seats with stock-type interior). No custom interiors allowed. There will be no limit on the amount of bright items on the engine or in the engine compartment. See notes concerning dealer and factory-sold conversions in the Stock Class

If it's next weekend it's pretty late to be too concerned what they will look for. Go and have a good time and use it to learn what to do the next time. That way you may not be disappointed. Have fun and meet some new people.

clean,clean and clean some more LOL. Also be sure when the judges get to your car no clutter is in the cars trunk or under the car ianywhere. Make sure they get acess to the whole car,under hood inside and trunk. Windows up and doors not closed but just opened a little.Do not talk to them and make sure your judgeing sheet is filled out and on the cars dash or windsheild when they get to you!! Good luck and have fun also is a rule!!

Very nice Eddie...from what I can see, well done!

Good advise has already been given. Don't take it too seriously...enjoy yourself. More importantly, use this show to gain experience. Keep all your paper work in order and be near your car in case the judges have any questions. DO NOT invade the judges space! I have judged cars before only to have the ownner shadow me...there is nothing that irritates a judge more!

I am certain your car is ready to make you proud no matter what the show.  If you are like most of us you are probaby your own worst credict so use it to your advantage. Judge your own car before the show and make adjustments accordingly.

Good luck

Marty,
Reggie, responded to me tonight..Thanks for the contact..As everyone has stated he confirmed clean, clean, clean, and when you think its clean enough, clean it again.

We'll see this coming w/e..If interest, I'll let you know how we do once we get back from the SC event...
Regards,
Eddie

First off, thanks to everyone for their in put and advice in getting my car ready for its first SCS event...I just got back in from the  event at the Virgina Motorsports Park , just out side Petersburg Va.  I will post some pictures tomorrow night. There must have been 25 to 35 or more first generation, each day during the event....

The 1969 Z28 RS showed very well...On Saturday afternoon, I was asked to move my car to the Gold Class. Wow, man was I excited !!! I about whizzed in my shorts !!!! For those that don't know the SCS format this guarantees your car to be one of the top four cars and a chance to win the Best of Show !!!! )...The four Gold Classes are: Best Detailed, Best Paint, Best Interior, and Best Engine, and then the top award - the Best of Show... The top four cars were 1970 Chevelle SS, 1967 Corvette 427/437HP, 1969 Z28 Camaro and a customized 1969 Camaro silver with red interior. This car won the Best of Show....

On Saturday, only ten awards were given out. The 1969 Z28 RS won, one of the Editors Choice Top 10 Show Car awards out of at least 350 to 400 cars.

Today, the Camaro was presented with a Gold Award, and then the Camaro was presented with Gold Class Winner - Engine award.

Again thanks
Eddie

Thanks, I could have not done this without all the encouragement from this site member and the recommendation to clean, clean, and then clean some more...It really paid off...

I would also like to thank a couple of strangers, a father and son team who actually went to the judges and said, "Hey you really have to look at this car. I have been and seen a lot of cars and this one needs to be in the Gold Class" , so I guess they listened...

So my lesson learned from this past w/e is that if the car presents its self well enough, then it will get the recognition it deserves. All I did was to drive Miss Daisy to the show the car show...

If you want to vote for any of these cars here is the link to vote - http://bestofthebest.superchevy.com...

Like the guy that was parted beside me said " we are not going to win this show, I've been to enough of these to know who's going to win...". I asked why is that ?...Its simple...That kind of car sell magazines and looks great on the cover of SCS...

Yup...Something about highly modified cars that gets the judges attention. The Best of Show is nice but Modified's just aren't my cup of tea. They can't hold a candle to a stock/original First Gen...

That's why you need to know the guidelines for judging of any show you decide to enter...

At the end of the day. I keep this thought in mind. Its really about showing classic cars to people that likes to journey back in time. Forgets about next month rent, car payments or just to show the kids what mom and dad use to drive back when...

Now when I walk through a car show I blow past some of the cars, but when one catches my eye, by the color, the chrome, the paint job or even a big As# blowers I stop and look. Why, because I appreciate the time and effort that goes into building any kind of car.

We all seem to choose a car to buy or build based on what our dad's had, the first one that caught our eye, or we just want to hold on to a part of history, a very special time with a very special person...What was her name ?  Hummmmm !!!!

To put things in prospective - There is an older guy that lives close to me with a 1970 or 1972 Nova...He drives the car to the shows and it looks like the miles that he has on the car. Its not detailed, and could use a good waxing...He knows he is never going to win the best of show...He goes to the shows to meet people and he enjoys a simple conversation. He is the real hero of why car shows can be fun. That is until we add in the competitive edge...

I think all of us can identify with this person. The guy or gal that attends show after show and never wins an award. What you say is perhaps true, in that it doesn't seem to matter if this individual takes home an award or not. Just me, but I don't think this could be farther from the truth. Why else would car hobbyists enter a competition show. Perhaps its just that some people can hide their emotions better than others.

I have attended a total of 20 shows in the short time I have owned the Camaro. More often than not you will see the same owners and their cars at show, after show, after show. There is no question the disappointment is always on their faces for going home empty handed. I had the pleasure of judging a show last year for a club that is highly respected in New Mexico and attendance to these shows is quite large. Our rides could be displayed but were not in the competition. My position with the club gave me some leverage and the ear of the clubs president. Long story short, these owners and their cars were finally recognized. The look on their faces, and that of family members was priceless. I can honestly say this was by far the best time I have had at any car show.

Moral of the story...that "clunker" over in the corner is just as important to that owner as a best of show.

And it may represent a bigger investment of time or resources (relative to income) to that owner than a high dollar super car represents to the owner who sent it out to a restoration shop, for a money is no object restoration.
