I have had my FF Challenger R/T since December. Had it in three shows and enjoyed all of them. In all three shows I had the only FF Challenger. My last show the past weekend I got 98 out of a hundred points. 2 points were taken off because of "soot inside my exhaust Tips". I recieved a Spnsors's award, the judges like the car and the color. I don't enter shows expecting an award but if I get one it adds to the fun. When I had my '78 Vette I entered it in 11 shows, won 11 awards had a great time at all 11 shows. Is there bias, favoritism, and bad judging yes there is and when I saw it I just never entered that particular show again.
A clean car is important, clean engine bay, and clean interrior and trunk. If you have the cars documentation (window sticker, build sheet,bill of sale, etc) display it with the car. Dash plaques from past shows and picture of the car in a frame as a display are nice too. I see more and more of this, but a plastic or die cast model of YOUR car also adds to the car. I watched as two judges looked at the plastic model more than the actual car and asked the owner how did he match the paint. That particular car won a top three award.
