I left before the award ceremony. Is there any way to get a copy of my judging sheet?

I also would like to get a copy, just so I can hope to do better next year.

Don't hold your breath guys. I tried to get mine from ImpalaFest last year, and was sternly told to forget it. That was after they told me they WERE going to give me a copy of it when I was there. Who knows though, maybe they've changed their policy. Your best bet is to be there when they judge, and see what they're writing and saying while they're judging your car.

Give the ISSCA HQ staff a couple of weeks to recover from this (I know that I was on about 10 hours sleep.....TOTAL.....for Wed-Fri nights and I can't imagine they did any better!) and they can mail out copies of the sheets on request.

Yeah, I've been home for 3 days, and I'm still walking around like a zombie!

Email [email protected] and copies of your judging sheet will be mailed A.S.A.P.

We had a list posted for everyone to sign-up for the mailing.

I'm on the list.

I'd like to where I need to improve. Whether show or go.

OK, and talking as a car show judge (and yes Charles, I judged your car)....

I was pretty impressed by the level of show cars this year! Some very nice cars, and it's great to see folks paying more and more attention to the "details" that win car shows.

As for what to look at : look at your judging sheet when you get it back (and a blank one is on the ISSCA website if you want to see that). Most common problems we found were :<UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Dirty Wheelwells.....especially up top on the inside. Run a finger just above the tire on the inside wheelwell....it should come out clean.
<LI>Dirty behind the license plate. Cheap tip (and I used this one on my car) : remove the spring (which was rusty/nasty on MOST of the cars I judged) on the license plate mechanism, and Home Depot sells one that is a VERY close replacement. Home Depot charges all of $2.....for two of them (in one package!). The new spring looks lots better back there!
<LI>Clean the interior trim around the windows. The "finger test" showed a lot of dust buildup on the interior trim around the rear quarter windows. Tint-safe window cleaner works great here, and doesn't take more than a minute or so of "extra" effort beyond cleaning your windows in the first place.
<LI>Display and Safety Items. These are 10 of the EASIEST points to get at the car show......and you'd be amazed how many folks didn't get more than 1-2 points (if that) on this one! Just find 5 safety items (i.e. flashlight, fire ext., jumper cables, small toolkit, jackstand, helmet, etc) and 5 display items (pictures, dealer brochures, ISSCA Cap, model/diecast cars, etc) and put them in your trunk. I suspect that these EASY points changed how a few cars placed in the car show!
<LI>Clean the inside of the wheels.
<LI>Clean under the floormats.
<LI>Clean the hood latch mechanism (both on the hood and the front of the radiator support)
<LI>Clean out the shifter mechanism (on a 96 SS)
<LI>Clean the underside of the rubber trim that is along the bottom of the rear window.
[/list]

Just a few tips, hope these help!

One more tip to consider, as ISSCA judges for the past two years...

The mods are amazing!! Some of you have done AWESOME things to your cars!! BUT, please keep in mind that your mods and mileage simply determine your class. You are judged on CLEANLINESS and CONDITION!!

That said, we saw some really great cars too!
