Thank you coming on and offering the truth. You may be new to the Shelby world but your integrity, honor and taking responsibility are noble, honorable and an example for many to follow. It was a pleasure to meet you an and honor to judge your car.
I was on the team as well as 3 others and myself and 2 of the others are well known and recognizable. Not sure why the "don't know who they were " comment was made. The car owners explanation was exactly how it happened. I turned around and he had already placed the covers on the fenders. Although I wouldn't have done that it was a extremely kind gesture on his part, As for the elbows, arms comments I cannot nor will not address it as i dont know what the poster supposedly saw. I would only say that it would be very out of character if anything excessive was done.
We did 3 Div 1 (thoroughbred) cars that weekend and all 3 owners/restorers were incredibly nice, helpful and appreciative of the way their cars were judged. 2 of them thanked me at the show personally for the way their cars were judged professionally and another (restorer) called me Sunday to say it was one of the most "thorough but fair" judgings he has ever had and he does many Div 1 cars.
I find it a shame that a an event that was a positive one for the club, owners, restorers and judges has to be disparaged in a public light with little facts behind it.
If anyone wishes to discuss this further with me personally, my phone number is the same as it always has been.
