Hooters Car Night, WTF!!!!!!!!

I was at hooters car night in King of Prussia PA and was parked next to a v6 yellow camaro with only upgrades being non stock wheels and leather. My car is a 2 SS/RS with blacked out emblems, pedal covers. My car is victory red with black stripes and his was yellow with black stripes. at the end of the night he wins a trophy and I dont. WTF is that that the Super Sport loses to a V6. Next time I am going to Bring my uncles R8 to the show and win a damn trophy!!

big deal.... I went to one of those shows a few months ago at the Hooter's near us. The girls judged... if your car wasn't chromed over and had a big spoiler on the back... you didn't stand a chance. Don't worry, there's plenty more shows out there.

This isn't a V6 vs V8 thing. Just because you have a V8 does not mean you take the cake. Maybe the judges found that the other car was strikingly similar to yours in the sense that it was a solid color with stripes. Maybe they thought it's leather and upgraded wheels outdid your blacked out emblems.

It's a show. They judged. You lost. Big deal. I've had my car in several shows. I've never won. Dude...mine is CGM #1, have upgraded wheels, custom paint, etc, etc and I've never won. Just let it go and move on....maybe next time.

They probably liked the yellow car because it was bright and different. The murdered-out look is so common now it's gotten boring; "oh yeah, another blacked out car". I'm sure yours looks great to you but after you've seen car after car like that, it's no longer special or a big deal. Nothing against you or your car, just the way it is now.

Car shows are VERY subjective! Some you win, some you don't, and the very same cars may be in both. All depends on what the judges like. I have beaten Mustang GTs, Shelby's, Corvettes etc... with my V-6. Then at other shows I get beaten by all of the above. Some days you win, some days you lose!

If you think you deserve to win a trophy, then you DO NOT deserve to win a trophy. You're doing it for the wrong reasons.

Car shows should be about fun first. Fair competition is good, but it's not a reason to disrespect another Camaro, regardless of engines. Most people (outside of car people) don't care what engine the car has. It's just how it is.

Besides, it's a HOOTERS car show. Meaning popular choice (along with a pretty decent venue). This means your car wasn't popular enough that particular night. Big deal. Enter next time. You never know. What if you did win? Then what? If you entered next time and lost, you'd be crying worse about that.

He had aftermarket rims. That alone set him apart. I'm sure that tipped the scales along with the bumblebee look.

Hate to say it but my dad judged shows for years. You shouldn't feel bad about losing to a V6, the judge sees it on a car to car basis. Doesn't matter what size engine a vehicle would have, otherwise going to a car show would be stupid, and the guy with the biggest engine would win them all. Which is not what a car show is about.

When a judge is faced with a tough decision between cars they have to nit pick. By the end of the day one of these cars has to be a winner. If ever you think you are close to losing or you are in a tossup, clean your car off again before the judge gets back. Trust me, the second time he looks (if your car was worhty enough for a second look) will be for any dust, fingerprints, door fit, anything they can find to make your car better than the other guys. The smallest thing can cost you the trophy every time. Something rubbed the judge in the wrong way about your car. That is why you lost.

IMO, I can almost guarentee that it was the fact that yours was blacked out.
