was looking for a thread on judging, to ask a question. I think I might have answer from reading this thread.
My question was on when it would be acceptable to judges to use reproduction parts on my Mustang.
I take it the answer would be that "it depends"..haha.
As you have already figured out it depends on where your showing, what class and other things. In general, most classes accept good reproduction parts
Which organizations judges your show but more importantly what class.
Its a combination of rules and class
In Concours d’Elegance judging, reproduction parts will most likely be a deduction(thus the crazy prices you see for "NOS" parts)?...............................
Not really Concours d'Elegnace is more, in my experiences, about shinny and pretty. Most do not have the judges that could determine between a reproduction (even a poor one) and an original part. Cars can get choosen just based on what kind of car the judge(s) like more, because of the color choice or they perceived understanding of how rare the car was. Was at one show last year where a 67 GT500 was not a big winner though IMHO it was a solid trailer concours car. Why- Judge said it was a mass produced car.
Ok - so what won 1st and 2nd? A Barracuda and a Chevelle
