mustang times
« on: August 01, 2015, 09:13:17 AM »
got our mustang times yesterday and read the article about the '66 convertible.  I thought the Warwick show was Plan B judging.  If it was I wonder what award the car got when it got a complete judging.  I am not nitpicking on the car.  I just think that when a car goes out its first time and gets a gold and the next time it does not, MCA should clarify to a Plan B judged show that the next show the owner goes to, expect a more thorough judging.

I've just received my MCA Mustang Times. I attended the Warwick Rhode Island show and if I remember correctly plan B judging wasn't used. That must have been a real nice car only losing three points first time out.

I wouldn't get complacent, there's quite a range of knowledge amongst MCA judges.  Maybe after 5 golds an owner can start relaxing, assuming there have been different judges each time.  As much as the club has tried to improve consistency over the years, it's not an easy thing to do.

I saw the article, looks like a decent car, but only a couple small pics.  Seems like there would be some better pics to show off what a high scoring example looks like?

I fully agree with that statement.

+1, indeed.
I don't always downshift, but when I do it is near a Prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.
