I was wanting to know what class i could be put in to if i were to show my car. by the SCMC rules. I have a aftermarket paint job, a new shifter knob, cold air intake, and a SVT cobra license plate holder thing. any ideas if the shifter knob and the plate holder count as mods or what? what about paint is that a mod? if i were to take out my jet chip would that lower my mod limit by one?

Modifications are visible mods so your jet chip wouldn't count at all.
Paint modifications would as well as your shifter if it looks aftermarket (not stock looking). The license plate holder could be counted as a modification as well....

Clear side markers, snake grill emblem, lowering kit, rims, stripes, paint, interior pieces etc...all will go as mods.

Chips, pulleys, etc...would not. A supercharger/turbo/nitrous would as well as chroming the engine or a cat-back (exhaust tips).

thanks a lot. the snake emblem on the front is not stock? I have a 1999 i just got it and they have some weird stuff done to it. Like they took off the fog lights when they painted it and never put them back on. the rear SVT emblem is gone (ordered another one) some weird new short shifter and mustang shifter knob.

i was wanting to know if the SCMC round club stickers count as a "mod" i have them on the side windows (the smaller triangle ones in the center) let me know what you guys think. I have no idea what class i woudl be in if i wanted to show my car. I do not know what counts as a mod and what does not. confused be I.

I would think that you would be in the personalized category because of the paint. Usually stock would be 0-3 mods, personalized 4-8 mods and Modified 9+ mods. In some shows the judges would decide which category you would be in. About the sticker, I would not look at it as a mod. An inspection sticker is not a mod so I would not think an svt cobra club sticker as a mod. Maybe a large windshield banner. I would not think the license plate holder would be a mod either. Cars do not come out of the factory with a license plate and people do not think of it as a mod, so I would not think a liscense plate holder would be one either (as long as it sorta looks stock). I don't really know what to think about the snake grill emblem some ways I would think it would be considered a mod and in others I would not. Can't make up my mind on that one. :thumbsup:

Club sticker should have no effect on judging. But in Mustang Club of America judged shows they add a point if it(M.C.A sticker) is displayed on car.

lots of people have won for various reasons-- different shows= different judges! just because you don't win at one doesn't mean you won't win another :thumbsup:

You will always have a chance at winning. Different judges like different styles. It is not just one person winning all the time. It just depends on how nice your car is. Definetly show it!!! :thumbsup:

The first judged car show I went to was not categorized appropriately. I just went for the experience. What struck me as odd, was I got grouped with the kit cobras (either they had no place to put them or the mustang cobras). As for mods, my car was the only one that was stock, everyone else in my class had either superchargers and or other bolt on things. There was a red one with lots of red wire wraps all over the place. A bit too much overkill and it looked a little sic. There were some show stoppers there too. Then again I did not enter expecting to win anything. It was just for the experience. It did not surprise me that a kit cobra won in my category. I really do not see how they are linked since they are two entirely different vehicles. I might attend this year and did not go last year since it rained that day. I like the freebie shows at the local park that offer live entertainment (music) which is a monthly event during the summer. :thumbsup: It is surprising to note how many people are interested in looking at my car when there are only a small number of mustangs. Most that attend are hot rods and classics and not too many modern vehicles. It tends to be a good mix of all makes and models. However, what is nice about the all FORD events, you get some ideas from others on what they did, what looks good and what does not.
