Vegas Valley Mustang Club held a show at the Eastside Cannery Casino in April. Matt and I had just joined and was asked to judge. This show was open to all makes and models. The club had judging sheets for each car and broke the classes up by year. Example--1950-59, 1960-69, etc. We had a couple of categories on the sheet. Paint and body, interior, wheels and chrome, engine compartment, and overall condition. Points were awarded 1-10 and 10 was the best and the closest to 80 points were winners. But the President of the club made sure that if a class had a lot of entries, then more trophies were awarded for that class than a class with only say 3 entries. So it is safe to say that each club makes up their own judging criteria. Which I think is better than a popular vote. I would suggest that you make ideas known to your club for what you think should be changed for judging their local club shows. Clubs have to build a reputation for hosting a car show. The more people that are satisfied with trophies, goody bags, drawings, raffles, etc. means that more cars will enter the next show.
