Just wow

Car show today.
A 2011 Transformer SS took second place on American Muscle 1980 and newer.
First was a bad ass newer Mustang that was loaded with HP.

How!!!! Does the SS beat my 615 hp ZL1 that has much more "muscle"?

I think these judges are pretty clueless as to what constitutes a movie theme car and true American muscle.

Unreal

If your trying to be judged on muscle, maybe you should be at the drag strip, and not a car show. Just saying!

10-4! Judges are looking at a lot of different things. Horsepower and the engine bay are just one of many things on there list. Wish you better luck next time, and FYI, I like the ZL1, especially with horsepower.

I went to a Memory Lane car show in Flower Mound and entered the 80s and newer Camaro class. All of the others in the class were ZL1s, I am a SS. The Zs were all stock and I have some performance, suspension and cosmetic changes. Of course, I won the class. Sometimes, the judges, other people entered in the car show, see the effort put into our cars.

Atleast in racing there is a clear and obvious winner (sometimes very close) as defined by the rules. not left up to someones judgement (and buddy buddy relations) if you wanna judge muscle , then prove how much muscle you have. drag strip, road course, dyno competition etc.
LOL! I've never heard of anyone breaking a transmission at a car show.

"has tons of obnoxious stick on crap" You're entitled to your opinion.
