Patrick Touhey Because its a classic car show. When the 5th gen becomes classic, they will be judged on preservation and/or restoration.

Bob Cavanaugh I understand. But we pay the same entry fee. If we stand no chance of a trophy why are we paying to display our cars which your club benefits from by all the people that walk by to admire and ask questions? Your club gains by our attendence.

Patrick Touhey Ok, park your ride in the spectator lot and enjoy the band, food, fun and games for the kids. Check out the old rides that people have spent years and lots of $$$ restoring. That's why I like the hobby because you don't these cars every day on the street. Hey, I want to buy a new Hemi Charger and I think they are cool and fast. But I would never think of bringing to a classic car show. That's me.

Mark Furgal So, you don't wanna go, because you won't go home with a prize??? I'd pay the fee just to know my car won't get jacked.

Patrick Touhey Hey I have a 66 Plymouth that will never win any prizes, because I really have invested any serious $$$ in it. I drive it all the time and I have the scratches to prove it.. I love going to shows when I can to hang out and check out other peoples rides. I have yet to submit a judging form. When you pay a fee to go to a car show, your paying for the costs we incur getting everything ready, such as renting the space, insurance, food, music and fun things to do. Its takes a lot of work putting these shows together. And people have been doing for years. Buying a new car and bolting some nice extra is not the same as taking a rusted shell and bringing back to life for all to enjoy.

Mark Furgal does it say all cars will be judged?

Patrick Touhey Because certain people would complain if we didn't. We list the classes available for judging on our form and most cars shows do. If your does not fit that class....oh well enjoy the day of looking at cars. what is the big deal. If you want a trophy for showing up, go play kids soccer. Good Lord.

David Morgan Mark your right maybe it should say that? and Patrick if you do have it on your form, thats fine and people should then know. And yes I am not about any awards I could care less. But if the flyer has the invite for his type of ride..I would think hes only asking for the same consideration for showing up and paying, yes some people do go for the awards and "demand" them..I know you all know that type of person at shows..lol.
about an hour ago Like

Bob Cavanaugh @ Mark does your flyer say "22nd Annual show" or does it say "22nd Annual CLASSIC CAR show?" In fact since it states "along with retro modern muscle", this in fact infers the that the 5th Gen Camaro which was modeled after the First Gen Camaro(making it "retro") will be included in the judging.

Patrick Touhey Bob, to put you at ease.I called the car show director. This is the second year we have done the awards as the top 25 cars that the judges like, There no classes at Autofest, unlike the Seekonk show and in years past when we had our show in Medway. So, the awards will be spread around to all cars, depending on how the judges feel.And I am not a judge. Your car could get an award if they like it. Feel better???

Bob Cavanaugh Thank you Patrick. It wasn't really about winning, it was more about being excluded.

Tim Charland Some of the comments coming from here are really showing true colors, what ever happend to just the pure love for cars new or old. a group of poeple representing a club posting comments above unfortunately dont just speak for the person posting, it represents the club as a whole and really shines a negative light on the Mass Cruisers itself. If your having a "classic car show" have the cut off dates on the flyer, but the shows that our certain group has gone to in the past didnt say anything about new cars. I go for the love of cars, love looking at all new and old cars, and the personal touches people do to them. I remember personally talking to one of the members at the Seekonk show, and he went out of his way to thank us for supporting the mass cruisers, i told him that we had guys from all over to come to their shows cause the quality of the cars that do attend are class A material. When it comes to trophies and being judged, ive been going to enought shows over the year to know its a pre 1975 based judging, and i told the guys that, but again went for the love of cars. The part that really sadens me is some of the comments above about not even wanting newer cars there and why bring them to a classic show. The fact that some are nice to our face and take our donations but then openly **** on us in a open public forum is just shamefull.

im Charland Ive been going to your shows since i had a license (17 years) mostly spectators, and yes ive always done the raffles, i have a few shirts. I didnt have the time to go and buy a shell or the money to restore an old car. I would love to attempt it one day but my schedual doesnt permit it. Secondly i would be one of those guys that would buy one all done up fully restored and just drive it. Hell ive even mentioned to a few guys at the shows about trading titles!!. The main fact here is one little line would clear everything up. If your going to have a show like the one we are posting in. Just add that "only pre 1980" will be judged, you will still have the guys with newer muscle show for the love of cars and donate but if they care about a peice of shinny plastic that they are not eligable.

why not just have a category for modern muscle cars? I go to shows all the time that try to appreciate and judge ALL muscle and classic cars, more is better, no real reason to restrict entrants.

Its kinda same way down here. Its kind of the buddy system here (its who you know instead of whats you drive) you would not believe the cars that took home trophies. I usually tell any new Camaro owner that comes to shows don't expect to win anything cause it won't happen. I will still keep going to the shows cause my love for cars and taking pictures....

we have kind of the same thing here. We go to a local cruise night here every thursday and its a classic car cruise night. 70% of the cars that show up are older ones but there are still plenty of newer models that make appearances.

But the judges are usually a little biased towards the classics, even the ones that don't look good.
