"DAILY DRIVEN CLASS" Question
When I entered my Mustangs in the MCA Show in Pensacola Florida, in the Daily Driven Class, I never chose to have the "Undercariage" to be judged and I never had to raise my Hood for Judging. I Drive my Mustangs 215 Miles to this Show and spend a long time on detailing. At the Show in March of this Year, I had to switch Vehicles because I sold the Mustang so I brought my Limited Edition Ranger Truck. It was Registered as a Daily Driver. When it came time to be Judged, the "Judges" were 2 Kids that looked to be 16 or 17 years old. They asked me to raise the Hood and I told them that is was registered as a "Daily Diven" so there is no Judging under the Hood. I opened to Door for them to Judge the Interior and one of the Kids just glanced inside and they walked away. This year was the Fifteen Year in the last 12 Years that I did not win a Trophy.
<01> On "Daily Driven", is it aLL Vehicles or just Mustangs that do not have to Raise the Hood?
<02> Is it possible to make a Rule that any Judge that is under the Age of 21 must be with an Experianced Judge that has been Judging more the 5 Years?
I don't mind losing if my Vehicle is Judged properly.

Certified Mustang Judge
Was the vehicle a Ranger truck you had judged?
If so, the local club, I believe assigned the judges for that class.
I do have a young lady E. Kennedy who has judged about five or six Nationals including the last National in Mustang, OK.
She is young but is a very, very good judge.
So, only one judge under 30. I would say has judged at a national, in the past six or seven years.

Yes, it was my Ranger Truck. If my Vehicles are Judged properly and I lose, thats fine. I just dont believe it was Judged properly. They walked around it once, one of them poked his head inside for about 2 seconds and then they walked off. These 2 Kids looked like they would perfer to be Home playing Video Games.

If this was at a national MCA event it was not judged by MCA judges. Ford special interest is judged by the host club. Who ever they send out to judge. I do not disagree that you were not properly judged but it is out of our hands. Marty
