:rotf: :rotf: i was kidding about me., but not about mikes he's got over 100k on the clock :thumbsup:

I think we used a 10,000 mile per year as the criteria on the daily driver, but am not sure. That means if you averaged over 10K a year then you could be in the daily driver class. Again, I cannot remember for sure but I guess we need to write it down on paper.

I also think we need to breakout the 03/04 classes. One separate one for 2003 Cobras and one for 2004 Cobras as that class always has a lot of cars in it.

Please feel free to offer any constructive criticisms about the show. The key word here is constructive so we can make next years better or use it for future shows. Thanks! :thumbsup:

How about if you split up the daily driver class? If there was a 03-04 Cobra daily driver then more of the newer Cobras would move to it. As it stands now if you have a 03-04 daily you can't compete with someone with a clean 94 Cobra with 130,000 miles. Another suggestion would be split up the Class H -- 1 1994 - 2004 Mustang class. That is a wide range of years to compete with each other. A it would be hard for a '94 mustang to compete with a 2004 that is only about a month old. These are not complaints, I really enjoyed the show. :thumbsup: They are just ideas that where floating around in my head.

That's funny. But it does make you wander about the clay bar he uses :eek:

The best thing you can give us is your honest input so we can have a better show each year. Remember though, we can combine or break classes out and I see what you are talking about the 03/04 daily driver class.

:thumbsup:

Daily Driver Class
 
a little disagreement with Tony on the daily driver. All cars in the show no matter if it is daily driver or any category is has to be clean. Part of the judging or alot of it is based on how clean the vehicle is inside and out. I hope you were making (trying) to make a joke.

Robbie'96 :eek:

Not a joke. Yes any show car MUST be clean but there is a big difference in the wear on a car driven 70 miles 6 days out of the week and one that spends 6 days out of the week in a garage. I'm not complaining. I drive my 03, 70 miles a day and I did well at the show but I had to spend 20 hrs to get my Cobra ready for the show. In 5 or 6 years, still driving 70 miles a day, it won't be so easy. Most people can't buy a $35,000 car just to put in a garage and rub on. Besides Cobras are not meant to stay in a garage. ;)

I think you missed the point of his commentary. I don't know if you were at the show or not, but there was only 1 car entered in the daily driver class which was Dave's and that is why I was picking on him (his car looked great though, and it was not dirty). Tony was hinting that others who qualified for that category should have entered it instead of entering the class by year of their car. So in this case yes, 2 more people could have entered and it would not have mattered what condition of cleanliness or lack thereof the car was in because they would have won due to the lack of competition in that category. :)

RF Cobra,

BINGO!

You'll have to excuse Robbie, he takes things too literal sometimes. You said my point exactly. Had Mike Boyle or even me, entered in the daily driving class, ( I would have had to bring the 94 Coupe though) he would have placed in his category and walked away a winner. Sometimes, it's the class you enter that will allow you to compete fairly.

Silver 10th,

Um, my 04 Mystichrome stays in a garage... :rotf: I drive the 94 Cobra coupe 62 miles a day 5 days a week, and the pace car stays covered up.

You should have entered the daily driver class to compete fairly but remember, we have mileage allowances too which will be explained this week for autofair. :thumbsup:

Tony

:) I was happy being in the class I was in. Just trying to make a few suggestions. The truth is, I enjoy cleaning on my car and will do it again next time. If I had it to do all over again I would still enter the same class. The show was great. I was just thinking about other people that put miles and wear on there car but still want to go to a show and feel like they have a chance.

Silver 10th,

Win or lose, I go home with a clean car. :) As a matter of fact, so do you. :thumbsup:

Tony should of explained his point better. I understand if you are the only car in the class you will win no matter what. Yes I was at the show I got 1st in my class. I have also ben to shows that if you are the only car in your class they move you to another class. My point is if you enter your car needs to be clean :thumbsup:
