[DML] Concours....

[MODERATOR NOTE: For anyone interested in this topic there is a 
seperate discussion group for the concours. For better or worse the 
concours topic does not interest most DMLers, and in the past a few 
very opinionated people clogged the DML with a large number of 
concours posts. If you are interested in competing in the Millenium 
Coucours I advise you to join that discussion group. 
- Mike Substelny, DML Moderator of the week]

Moderator, I totally agree!!!  But just to re-enforce the fact that 
the new setup was not just pulled out of thin air I have listed some 
interesting info.  It is a good system!

Thanks, Ron

Bloomington Gold
David Burroughs Introduces Certification® Judging

Prior to 1978, judging at Bloomington was based on "car versus car" 
competition. There were class winners and best of show winners, and, 
of course, there were losers. All that changed for the Corvette and 
collector car hobby when, in 1978, David Burroughs unveiled Gold 
Certification® judging.

Burroughs' plan was to enable any Corvette to be a winner if it met 
high standards of authenticity. Gold Certification® would require 
Corvettes to be judged not against one another, but as to the car's 
level of accuracy compared to the day it left the factory. A Corvette 
would earn a Gold Certification® if its condition was within 95 to 
100 percent of the way it rolled off the assembly line - no better, 
no worse. Being 100 percent factory authentic, though, did not mean 
the car was 100 percent perfect, because Corvettes weren't perfect 
when new. A group of judges were assembled from the nation's most 
knowledgeable Corvette experts and the National Corvette 
Certification Board was born The Gold Certification® judging 
procedures thus established became the benchmark for judging of all 
types of automobiles

(300 points) for 900 Total points. Cars are to be measured against a 
common standard of excellence, not against each other. The 
establishment of minimum scoring standards provides a base of 
perfection that must be attained for each award level.
