Thanks for information, Dylan. Cleaned my car last night with my new Adams products obtained at the fest. I'm a new fan!

atma the C5 guys and GM, I believe through our past association and shows with Fbodfather (IndY2k,Indy08, etc.) had asked us, the Central Indiana Camaro Club (CICC) to do the car show registration and judging. So for anything other than the Moderator/GM choice awards that we've already seen some of here, it's on us. I see you do get the point on how hard it is to judge a show like this. Please don't misconstrue, if you have to choose between two fantastic cars, if you find a little un-detailed area, or something not quite finished on one and not on the other what do you do? Cleanliness was certainly NOT a major consideration but it can be a factor. Also when you have to compare and judge some pretty highly modified cars against some that are mostly stock you've got to draw the line somewhere. It's all in the details!!! Certainly can't be on how many mods, or how much money was spent. One of the reasons I didn't want to judge, we all love our cars and would all love to take home a trophy! Ultimately this event really isn't just a regular "car show" or big SUPER CHEVY type event. It's an enthusiast Meet and Greet event to see who's behind all those funny screen names, with AutoX, drag racing, and some extra fun. It's to have CAMAR(O)aderie with all other Camaro lovers in all forms. For what this event is, and what it is about, I have to say they did an INCREDIBLE job!!! It really is quite an undertaking in ones spare time, especially on a yearly basis. If you've never been involved in something like it you can't even BEGIN to imagine all the HUGE, and seemingly thousands of little things that need to get taken care of (we worked on the Indy08 show for almost 2 years).

Hats off to the Camaro5 group!!!

(and didn't ANY of you take a picture of my car? I forgot my camera)

I really appreciate you guys sort of letting me kind of air out my misconceptions and clearing a lot of it up for me. This was my first Fest and my plan was to just do everything I could manage to get into that was being offered, including the opening cruise, the drag race clinic, the car show, etc. I opted to not do any racing simply because i wanted to be able to take it all in and not have to feel like I had any obligations. With all of the moving parts and all of the things going on (I actually pointed out to my gf at one point that you could be driving or spectating in either event, at vendor alley, hanging out at the parking lot or still back at the hotel at that very moment and still be totally participating in fest), the hiccup I experienced with the car show registration was the only duck that wasn't quite in a row, and they were more than helpful in getting that issue resolved post-haste. considering you guys are not event coordinators for a living, simply enthusiasts like the rest of us, i gotta say hats off to each and every one of you. i already can't wait 'til next year (you'll definitely see me on the strip) but really thank you so much.


just know that all that street cred you guys earned are dwindling by the second these results don't get posted!! people have jobs they gotta get t! they can't keep checking back here!

Black Beauty was picked by David Leone Team Camaro Award

David Leone is the Global Vehicle Line Executive for Chevrolet. What an honor to be picked by him. He really liked Black Beauty and autographed the award for her. Way Cool!

It took 22 hours to hand paint that block in the car with Por 15 engine enamel paint. The end results were well worth the time I invested in it, but I probably will never do it again.

I remember your car well. My wife and I said, wow, when we saw it. Your engine bay is spectacular to say the least.

Ok, it seem I know what must of happen to the results!
The rain came in,so hard, and so fast!
The score sheets got wet!,the ink ran,so the driver tried holding the out
The window at 120mph!(driving a zl1 I'm sure)
And they slipped out of the his hand!
So, now the results are in some cornfield in Indiana!
Lol
In my eyes the best award is the car you built and care so much about
Any way!
So everybody wins, and has the reward of driving car for others to enjoy!
Hope, Indy has it again next year, and had a great time!

Guys...there is no "right thing" here. I understand there was some confusion, but this was an informal car show at a gathering of Camaro enthusiasts. That's it.

I've been to plenty of car shows...won some and lost some. While there are pieces that are measurable, for the most part everything is completely subjective. What one judge likes another does not. Being a stock car doesn't automatically disqualify you, just as having 1000 horsepower shouldn't either. Car shows are supposed to reward the best looking cars...not separate everyone into different categories to make everything "fair". That's a little league mentality where everyone gets a trophy.

If you look at the GM award winners you'll see that they're all over the place, and that the cars look completely different.

Camaro5fest is really still in its infancy, and every year something new is learned. This should make next year's fest (in Texas...hint...hint) even better.

I was honored to recieve three awards. "Moderators Choice Award" from Doug (TAG). Team Camaro Awards from John Cox (Manager - Performance Vehicles and Motorsports), and Anthony Biondo (Assistant Advertising Manager). Apparently, I should have only gotten one from the Camaro Group, but I didn't know there was a rule about that and Anthony didn't know I had already recieved one from John. After he realized I had already gotten one from John, he didn't have the heart to take it back. What a nice group of people we have working on our cars. All of the GM people I talked with were really super nice and were very interested in what I had done to the car. I'm sure that was the case with everyone.

Here is a pic of me and my wife (Melissa) with Doug, me with John, and last but not least, Anthony.

I wasn't even in the car show and I was honored to receive my gm award. I was just waiting for them to autograph my car.

She came up to me and said she absolutely loved my car and what I did to it. Almost had a run in with an onion throwing ninja. Was totally unexpected and the highlight of the fest for me.

fastfreddie, Thanks for the compliment, and I'll return one to you. The color scheme throughout your car is off the charts. Very well done, and thought out. Hope our paths will cross again.

I haven't gone thru this thread deeply in detail, however many I make a request to the mods? Could you also include the persons screen names in the winners list so it may be easier to find/identify a picture of their car? I'm still working on connecting names to screen names. Thanks!

Then there was Best 1st generation through 5th gen...this is a 1st place only award. All in all, it was a good show, but yes it could use some refining. A central location would be great. Also, if there were several teams of judges, how did these teams determine the winner when they only looked at different cars? was it strictly a point system? If so, what if what team was stricter on the points than another? I had a great time and look forward to the next. All in all...phenominal organization. Way to go!
