Judging the newer cars
« on: October 16, 2009, 05:32:16 PM »
What are the judges looking for when they judge a newer car like a 1998 cobra? Cleanliness, low miles, originality?

I have a 98 cobra I ordered and purchased in April of 1998, it's been garaged every day and night and I've never touched it or changed anything on it but the air filter and oil filters. I've never thought about showing the car.

Hello,
What is looked at depends on what you want it to be judged. By that I mean the MCA has several levels of judging, Daily driver, occasional driver or because the car is more than ten years old you can have it judged in the concours driven class with will look at condition cleanliest and originally
I have done this class for about 4 years it is a challenge but I have learned alot about the cars and
what to look for. I have gotten my certification and now a gold card in this class. If you want to see more of what they look for go the MCA web site and look at the judging sheets or email me and I will help in anyway that I can.
