carguy when I was in fl. jan. looking over your Shelby I warned you about showing your car in MCA THB class after seeing what happened to Jason Billups black b9 getting gold in indy then fixing some things & showing in fl. 1 month later MCA grandnats. & getting a bronze. What happened to judging concours on what is right & what is wrong on the car instead of how clean the car is that's for ISCAshows. From what I seen in past judging is when the judge don't know enough about the car they judge on how clean the car should be & nitpik it. As head judge I go over the judging sheets with the other judges & show them what they missed & make them correct items BEFORE the sheets are turned in to avoid problems later. When I was in FL. jan.MECUM auction I was asked to look at one of the feature cars (KK1668 red b9 on front cover of mecum catalog) a MCA Thoroughbred gold winner for a buyer from N. IN. who fly his family & friends to auction & we had an empty trailer there to haul car back as he had the $ & wanted a red b9.Well we looked the car over as well as Bob Gaines also did & started to find things wrong like windshield,wiper blades,center caps, lugnuts,70 outer door felts,lower door seals missing,jack handle,a 70 hood hinge,XE alt belt,lh smog hose,70 dist advance,missing 4 radclips,gauge feed wire,wiring holders,70brake cables,welded on tie rod adjuster bolts,shocks,alum h-pipe,71 lower control arms,missing bumper arm rubbers & clips,clutchfork & boot & adjuster,alt wire, & repo parts roof weatherstrips,package tray,front seatcovers, shifter knob,headlight wiring harness,a/c lid,2 belts,a/c hose,smog valve,reverse lites,p/shoses,brakehoses,drain plugs,gas tank sender, & on the body front spoiler holes but no spoiler,2 extra holes in rear bumper ( by tag lite)extra holes front & reartrunk pan (trailer hitch or ?),3 dents underside decklid,tailpanel dented in by key hole,slick paint. no floorpan drips or runs,missing some seam sealer,no deadner on backside of rear valance & not enough on fender bottoms, not even close b9rolled rod fenders, trunk tailite wiring un raveled loose,silver painted tailite buckets,no paint on rear valance screws,wrong underlayment, lh tore at topwindlaceing,filters not oe autolite,many hardware & detailitems wrong etc.1 & 1/2 page list. The buyer said well if I buy it can you fix the incorrect items on the car & I said not with out painting the car over as you need to find boss 429 fenders first. He was very disappointed after making the trip & said how can this car be a MCA THB gold winner &I didn't have an answer & car never bid close to asking price. I was also asked to look at Mike B. 70 orange b2 after it got a gold THB in ill. in 2014 loosing 8 points because he wanted it judged at saac in 2015 & I am no b2 expert but knowing mike & his dad working on the car all these years & doing a great job on the resto I lookedit over & was surprised to find 55 or so items for him to correct before saac judging& he fixed most of thembefore saac. It just seems like some people have to earn their awards & some have them given to them & that's just not fair.
