Finally got my account activated on ISSCA. Read the car show rules, and it shows the supercharger is no longer an 'automatic bump' into the 'modified' category. It counts as one modification.
So 'street' is up to 66 modifications. I'm going to count mine tonight. I understand that headers, left and right, count as one. And the underhood mirrors would count as one.

But I don't think, even with my bling, I have 66. Because the exterior and interior, tires, etc, are essentially stock, with the exception of the stereo, floor mats, large speakers in trunk and large spare tire.

I think, even with the engine bling I'm quite under the 66. Does that seem correct to enter into the

Under 50k miles
Street (35-66 modifications)

This is only the second one I've entered and I want to do it right!

Hey sstrooper...
Yes, you are correct in entering: `95 "STREET Class", 50K+ miles as your Car Show Class.
Correct again in counting Mods, anything that comes in a "PAIR,SET or KIT" is counted as 1(one) MOD. Remember...these are "VISUAL MODIFICATIONS ONLY". Example: "Pair or Set" of Valve Covers, Set of Spark Plug Wires or the Engine Pulley Dress KIT.
The Basic "Supercharger/Turbocharger KIT" is counted as 1(one) Single Mod, each added part(s) like "Intercooler/Outercooler" etc. will be counted as an Additional Mod.

Just a reminder to everyone else entering the Car Show. The 2007 Car Show Classes & Rules are still the same as set back in 2005. NOTHING has changed, so if your looking at what appears to be an outdated set of Car Show Classes and Rules on the ISSCA Website, have no fear, as I stated NOTHING has changed...Yet. The only expected change will be the Addition of a 200K+ Mileage Class, WHEN there are enough vehicles in this Show Mileage Class to warrant it.
Car Show Classes and Mod Limits:
STOCK ... 0(ZERO)Mods
MILD STREET ... 1 to 35 VISUAL Mods
STREET ... 36 to 65 VISUAL Mods
Mileage Classes are:
Sunday Driver ... 0(Zero)to 49,999 Miles
Occasional Driver ... 50K to 99,999 Miles
Frequent Driver ... 100K to 149,999 Miles
Daily Driver ... 150K+ Miles
Additional Notes:
A vehicle MUST SCORE a 100 Point MINIMUM of the 180 Points available to "AWARD".
There are also 10 "BONUS" Points that CAN be awarded at "THE JUDGES DESECRATION !!"
5 points for DISPLAY Items and 5 Points for SAFETY Items.
Hope this Helps. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Can you clarify definition of "visual mod"
Here are some things I wonder about.
Canton oil pan
Oil filter adapter from a 1993 (Big filter)
LT4 intake
Bigger SVO injectors
Aluminum driveshaft
Safety loop
Vette starter
Braided brake lines
Chrome valve stems and caps
Rear air bags
Painted door handles (were black)
Painted mirrors (were black)
Painted license plate bracket (was Black)
Painted wheel lip mldgs from an Impala then painted body color (originals were chrome)

Some of these you have to get under the car to see but you don't have to take things apart.
Also I seem to remember that there was a limit to how many points were added for changing paint color.

I could go on and on but answers to these would probably help me witth other 100 or so.
May not matter as there is usually only one Wagon Class- but you never know.

Hey Richie...
Just as I stated..."Visual", IF I Can See it, then its a Visual Mod. ISSCA Car Show Judges will NOT get down on their hands and knees and look Under a vehicle to check for "Mod's" !! Were going on the "Honor System" here. [img]smile.gif[/img] If it can be seen "Thru" the engine bay, fenderwell, window(s), T-Top, or open(ed) area, then I would consider That a Visual Mod. [img]smile.gif[/img] You are correct about the Aluminum Driveshaft,DS Loop, U&L Control Arms , Shock's, Air Bags and other under chassis items being Mods, but unless you have mirrors on the ground "SSHOWING" these items, I wouldn't count them as Visual Mods.

Hope This Helps !?!? [img]smile.gif[/img]

Hey Richie...
Missed answering your question on the "POINT'S For Paint." There isn't a set number of "Point's" for Paint Work. Basically, Now, Changing the Factory Color, TO or FROM any other Color, Stripes, Flames, Graphics, and even Pin Stripping, is now Counted as 1(ONE) Mod. There isn't Any "Automatic Bump Rules" Anymore !! ANY Paint Work, Stripes, Flames, Graphics, and Pin Stripping used to "Automatically Bump your vehicle into the MODIFIED Class, NOT Anymore !!
This was dropped when the 3 Paint Color Classes were dropped. IF someone repaints their vehicle from say,"Black" to "DGGM" or "DCM" or to "Black" from "DGGM" or "DCM", Factory ImpalaSS Colors, it is still counted as 1(ONE) Mod. Any and All Combinations of Paint Work, Stripes, Flames, Graphics and Pin Stripping is 1(ONE) MODIFICATION.
Hope that Clears the "PAINT" question up.
