    i just won a trophy on my gt500 out of 7 others in my 2010-2015 category
    clean car
    clean engine bay
    flawless over all
    and i had a rare color combo and let the judges know it

    all were stock
    not sure if they would choose a 13/14 over a 11/12 because of more hp or not

    for me it was 1 judge......and i think he judged mine because of rarity and how clean it was...they spent tons of time looking under the hood even though it is 100% stock.

    -----you should not look for a trophy on a stock car....for me its a joke they give a trophy to ANY stock car under 10 years old.......car shows should be for customized cars(newer) and restoration and originals of old cars.....winning a trophy for writing a $70k check and washing he car the day before shouldnt win you a trophy.....it did for me.....and it means nothing.....i was going to just toss it in a box, but i gave it to my 11 year old son to hang on his wall since he was with me

    I learned to have a fire extinguisher and first aid kit...extra points for those. I just got a display board as well...it attracted a ton of attention.

    Depends on the type of show you are going to. I have been car showed out for over ten years.
    I won plenty of first place plaques with my 70 Hemi convertible. I agree with Huggy, no cars less than 10 years old should be judged. It is a different story with the old cars because they all have a different story.

    You need a sign that describes the car and what is so great about it. I should match the color theme of the car. The car should be flawless at the show. You have to talk to people and the judges.
