fbodfather and mods,
thank you for getting this to end. I simply put up the post to see who won what, nothing more. I did not even mention that our car took home the Team Camaro award from John Cox, didn't feel a reason to so I left that out. Now that there is a sticky post for these awards I'll add it there.
Sorry that this got out of hand, but people will be people and not much we can do about that.

No worries. We honestly don't mind people voicing their concerns or complaints. Sometimes we have a reason why things are the way they are and sometimes we don't. Whenever possible we are willing to change something especially if it will make the show better for everyone.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Lots of good input here and if the C5 team will let us we'll be happy to take a more active role in the planning and layout of the show next year versus just judging a few categories.

On the subject of stock vs. modified - this is a conversation that comes up in many many many shows. While I can see the point where do you draw the line? There are already A LOT of awards handed out... so do you start to add sub categories to the point that everyone is happy?

At a certain point you might as well just hand out 'participant' trophies to everyone who shows up so theres no hurt feelings and everyones a winner!

Next year in order to make a new class I'd suggest going to a format more along the lines of a format I've used in the past:

Each car registers into a class based on criteria laid out before hand. What defines these classes is typically a percentage of the exterior panels modified and limits cars from jumping up a class without meeting the requirements. Its a top down qualification process. Want to be in SHOW, but you don't have a full paintjob and wheels, then you fall to the street class.
  • Stock (mostly original)
  • Street (semi-modified)
  • Show (heavily modified)

Then awards are given out for the best in each of those classes and certain classes are open to compete in larger pools for an award:
  • Best Paint (all classes included)
  • Cleanest Car (all classes included)
  • Best Engine (street and show included)
  • Best Interior (street and show included)

Outside of those classes either pick winners for each generation, or just include a "Gen 1 - 4" class that picks the best overall older gen camaro to keep things simple. There certainly wasn't much competition in the generation 1 thru 4 categories. Some classes had only a couple of cars.

The judging is then conducted on a simplified point scale.
