ImpalaFest is 6 days away and I haven't heard definitively what the class breakdowns will be. I saw that there were not any mileage breakdowns at Reno. Can someone, ie. an ISSCA BOD Member , clarify?

{Even one of you guys who is conveniently no longer in G Man's class, thanks to the mileage breakdowns you came up with! }

SSee you in Arlington!

I posed the very same question recently to our Pres. (HOSS) and am still waiting on an answer. The decision is not an ISSCA one to make being this is not "THE NATIONAL EVENT" [img]tongue.gif[/img]
Or so we keep being told.
I have confidence in our HOSS heads to make the show fair. Right guys????

Can someone from HOSS clarify which classifications they are using for the car show?

I'd like to know, too. I don't know if I'm up against all the Caprices or just my year/mileage. And if the "modified" rule will be in place I may be in a very small class.

You have a 93, so you won't be up against any Impala's. Maybe some wagons tho.

Stand by guys, this is changing almost on a daily basis, as everyone reacts to the events of last week. I'm only the messenger, but to answer a few of the common questions:

Robert is using a "modified ISSCA classification" system, year/mileage/mod level.

00-02 mods = Stock,
03-11 mods = Mild Street
12-20 mods = Street
&gt; 20 mods = Modified

Yeah, two mods is still stock, with no point deduction.

I don't know the mileage breaks yet; it will follow the ISSCA style (three classes, some number of miles per year) but may be a higher number of miles per year.

Historically small classes will be combined, just as we have done in the past. For example, there are currently only a handful of non-Impalas registered. Unless a large number of one type (wagons, 9C1s, Roadmasters, etc) show up, they will all end up in one class. That's not our preference (the show coordinator HAS a wagon and I'm sure he'd love to see a wagon class), but just the way the numbers work out.

Still LOTS of classes, LOTS of awards, LOTS of fun. And don't forget the drags on Saturday evening, and the autocross on Sunday.

There will be some sort of "statement" before too long concerning the impact of last weeks events on the show, our objectives for this year's event and any changes from the "normal ImpalaFest routine."

Thanks for your patience, thanks for your enthusiasm and thanks for keeping us in your plans! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Wagon class has just been confirmed! So we should have two non-Impala classes this year: wagons and everyone else. All years, all miles, all mods...

Thanks for your concern, Impala Land.
I'm fowarding this post from the hoss list and NAISSO digest for IF2K1's car show coordinator, Robert Leslie.
Thanks, people. Please take time out and read this, with an open mind and ImpalaFest hope that ya'll can find this change understandable at the moment. Thanks again.

Dear Impalafest Family,

HOSS would like to inform everyone that we intend to have this year's
event just like we have had this event in the past. We want everyone
who can make it to Arlington Texas this weekend to come on! Barring any
changes on the National scene, we will have all of the events we have
promised. Remember that this could be just the thing to relax and take
your mind off of your worries. So come on, we will have a great time.

Due to the happenings of last week, we have decided to make a few
adjustments to accommodate the public mood. We are all members of this
big Impala Family and with last week's attack, none of our minds have
been on detailing our cars and coming to Arlington. I know that no one
wishes to miss seeing friends, hanging out, and let's not forget the
competition of ImpalaFest. For this year only, we have decided to let
the Car Show Competition be participant judged. In this way, we can
lessen the strain on everyone, enjoy the cars, enjoy our friends, and
help each other. Just like family. This change is not meant to lessen
the competition, but lessen the pressure while increasing the fun. So
come to ImpalaFest, clean your car, hangout with your extended Impala
Family while enjoying some fine cars. Pick your favorite cleanest car,
go drag racing, and run in the Autocross, but most importantly, have a
great time!

As some of you know, ImpalaFest has adopted the suggestions of ISSCA's
Car Show Rules. These rules were used to classify cars at Dreamapalooza
and seemed to work fine. A lot of thought went into these rules to make
events fairer for everyone. By eliminating the color classification and
replacing it with a mileage breakdown, we have taken away that old
excuse "how can I compete with that guy who never drives his car."
Daily drivers will complete with daily drivers. That's fair!
ImpalaFest will be a chance to test this idea even further. The
ImpalaFest mileage breakdown will be as follows:

Occasional Driver less than 3,500 miles X no. of years old of your car
Frequent Driver more than Occasional Driver but less than Daily Driver
Daily Driver more than 12,000 miles X no. of years old of your car

EXAMPLE: A 1994 Impala would have this mileage:
Occasional Driver less than 24,500 miles (3,500 miles X 7 years old)
Frequent Driver between 24,500 and 84,000
Daily Driver more than 84,000 miles (12,000 miles X 7 years old)

Notice that there are three mileage classes just the way there are three
Impala colors. There will be just as many classes at ImpalaFest as in
the past. And the trophies are awesome.

Every year, HOSS donates a portion of the profits from ImpalaFest to a
HOSS favorite charity (Beat the Heat, Toys for Tots). A portion of this
year's profit will be donated to help the families of the victims of the
terrorist attack. So, come celebrate the freedoms we have with your
Impala Family this weekend.

See you Friday!
