If I hadn't slept until noon, I would have been passed out on the auction table at the banquet.

Damned wedding crashers.

Right right, keep telling yourself that. What about the other 3-4 nights?

Sleep a fest? What's that?

Is it possible to request a copy of the scoring sheets on one's own vehicle? I'd like to see where I was lacking compared to the rest of my division. I'll likely never be able to compete with the guys sporting fancy rims/tires, lots of performance mods, and 5-clay-bar-a-week habits, but that didn't stop me from showing anyway this year or back in '06 (and, likely, won't stop me the next time I get to a 'Fest, whenever that happens to be).

The other thing I'd like to know for my own edification would be where I ranked overall in the class (6th out of 12, 15th out of 15, etc.). Even if it was, as I suspect, dead last or nearly so, I'd still like to know. Back channel, of course; I'm not THAT much of a glutton for punishment that I want to take my lumps in public.

One has to know what one's weaknesses are in order to maximize improvement for next time, you know.

The scoring sheets were destroyed after tabulation.......

The categories are Outside, Inside, Underneath,
Engine and Mileage, on a scale of 1-10
(Low mileage is low points High mileage high points)

Knowing I was second in a class of two really puts meaning to "first loser".

Were they averages of the three judges' scores on all areas,
or were certain judges assigned specific areas and their scores combined (i.e.: Judge 1 had underneath and engine, judge 2 had interior and mileage, judge 3 had outside)?

Knowing which judge will be inspecting which area will help me decide where to concentrate my, ummm.... effort, yeah that's it: my cleaning effort.



Sorry Tomo, Fred found the simple "green" I left for you...

I'm not complaining. That engine cover you brought me made it a closer score.
Had you been really worried about your ranking in our class you'd have waited until AFTER judging to present it to me.

Quite the opposite won the Golf class. I believe it came down to how clean and shiny your car was. Didn't matter how hard, rare, or different the mods were. Thinking the mods didn't recieve extra points/credit.

I actually think the mods reduce your points. I removed the ashtray in my wagon because it's where I chose to route my usb input cable through, plus I removed my broken cupholder and never replaced it. I think those things hurt me in last year's Show and Shine.

Every Judge judges every car.........There are a total of 50 points possible per car........Cars with high Mileage can get 10 points in that category......then it is the total of the 3 judges
