Regarding the 'seriousness' of car shows: You bought and personalized your car because it's what YOU wanted, not what some idiot judge wanted. Unless that judge chooses your car, then the judge is obviously astute, and has a well respected eye for fine cars, right?

I entered my first Passat sedan in a show in Penn on some Saturday some years back. There were five in that class. There were three awards. I earned nothing.
I entered the Passat in a show in Conn on the next day. There were over 250 water cooled VWs in the show, (and another 250 or so air cooled). My same car that had been shut out of the first three places in a class of only five on Saturday, took Best Watercooled in Show out of 250+ entries the next day.

So please, keep this all in perspective.
