Re: [DML] Re: DCS judging of cars

 I guess I'm not really sure what the deal is with judging.  It's just like any other car show - people expect to see nice clean well kept cars, so if you plan on having your car judged, you should do whatever you need to do to make it look presentable!  Signs of decay and neglect such as sagging headliners, ripped weatherstripping, leaky and dirty engines, unwashed cars, mismatched tires, ripped seats, faded interior parts, bad fascia paint, etc count against you no matter what car show you go to.  Unless it is concours judging, accessories are never penalized as long as they are installed in a clean manner and do not look gaudy or in poor taste.  
If we have a sheet that itemizes things to be judged on/looked at, surely someone will complain next time when other aspects of the car were criticized even though they weren't on the sheet.  
The main idea here is to fix the old worn out parts, make the car look nice, and give a good wash and half-hearted detail and you should at least be competitive.  I have always been a subscriber to the Exotic Car Code of Ethics, one of which states that the car will always be reasonably clean and kept in good condition.  I'm proud of my car, the heritage, the history, the ethics, etc and I want people to see a top-notch example anytime they see my car.  The least it will do is keep perceived value high if people always see your car nice and clean.  Not just for your own car but for DeLoreans in general!
My trick is to do a complete interior clean and detail before a show, then if I have a long road trip until I get there, I will wait to wash the car until I am close to the destination, then I will detail it at the event.  Always works well for me.
