JUDGING CRITERIA

All vehicles will be judged by the following criteria:

Detail Engine Glass/Moldings/Rubber (except tires) Interior
Trunk area Undercarriage Judges overal opinion of the car Wheels/Tires

Each item listed above will be scored on a scale of 1 - 5. Any area that cannot be seen or is not accessible (i.e. trunk or hood closed or windows rolled up) will receive a score of 0.

In addition to the mandatory 1 - 5 scoring, the judges may award up to 3 optional points for each criteria. This was devised specifically for the H2O classes to level the playing field between "garage queen show-only" or "fresh off the showroom floor stock" vehicles and daily-driven modified vehicles. The air-cooled classes also adopted this same scoring method for their cars to help simplify the organization of the judging.

JUDGES

All judging is done on a volunteer basis ( We Need Judges! Contact Bob Rice at (816) 588-1040 to help with judging!). At 12:15pm, judges should congregate at the registration area to pick up scoring sheets. We encourage show entrants and spectators to participate in the judging. Judging for each class is done with two people, and those two judges will confer with each other and agree upon the point value to award each car for each criteria. Those who have never judged before should pair up with someone who has experience. You can judge any class your car is not entered in. These guidelines were devised for the highest level of fairness.
