there were only 5 or 6 wild cars last year. there are 25 awards. that means if even every wild car won you still have 20 spots open. how many mods you have doesnt add to your score. its all in how well your car was built and how clean it is. your car has just as good a chance at winning as anyone else. if you break it down to class we actuall will be giving out more awards this year if we go with top 25.

last years breakdown went about like this

5 stock cars
5 wild cars
everyone else mild.

i think the top 25 works.. in reality it is pretty much a entire J show. hell 25 is probably close to the amount of people i actually saw pull up to even show. So if your car is nice enough to get 1st-3rd in the same "classes" as last year then there is a good chance you'll be in the top 25...

I would do this since we have had a ton of J's at our show in the past few years.


J-Body Street - 1st-3rd
J-Body Mild - 1st-3rd
J-Body Wild - 1st-3rd

Then go with your Best of show awards.

Best of Show 1st Gen
Best of Show 2nd Gen
Best of Show 3rd Gen

Best of Show Coupe
Best of Show Sedan

Then things like: Engine, I.C.E., Paint, Interior etc.


When we have our Fall Show at the end of the Year, WE have only about 20 awards and 50-60 entries. The main rule we go by is, NO ONE WINS TWO AWARDS such as a BEST OF SHOW and a 1st Place. If a car/truck wins 1st place we bump up the cars in that particular class. That way it is more fair for the rest.

There is NO REASON what so ever a 95-99 and 00-02, 03-05 J-Body should have a DIFFERENT class for the Phase of the Generation. ALL can be modified in the SAME EXACT WAY and use about all the same parts available.

Those are just my opinions.

The way I just figured it, it is just around 20 awards.


When we do our annual Summer show, we have 25+classes and 15or so Specialty awards, the cost is around $2,500 and up. Awards cost alot on a big scale.

okay hers part of my reasoning. ive got 25 trophies offered to me. free of charge. just need to order nameplates for them. so that is no cost to the top 25 except as said the nameplates. then we'd just have to purchase the best of throphy's and i thought i'd take the money collected at the show and do raffles for parts. or give cash awards back.

all the trophy's were the same so i wasn't sure people would be happy with giving out a first, second and third place trophy that were all the same size.

i dont know... there's something about a nasty, dirty, un-maintained car getting a trophy that bothers me... granted im sure every car up to 25 spots at the bash will be clean n all but there is always that one that is just @!#$ put together with orange peeled panels, stock struts with lowering coilovers, and a dirty ass carpet.

maybe its just me but IMO it kinda makes the ones who try hard at winning the good stuff seem un-unique.

i don't understand your logic. we wouldnt be giving away that many more trophies then we have in years past. so how would dirty un maininted cars be getting a trophy?



would be no diffrent then having a stock class and giving out 3 throphies to the 3 stock cars that show up. i think last year there were 4 stock cars maybe.

i was meaning if ONLY 25 cars showed up (which we know will not happen).

but then if you look at it in terms of placing then you could say that the car that has the quality of being last place (25th) (i know thats not how its done but bare with me) was just as nice as say the best car there who got the hypothetical 1st place.

its like you look at 25 cars and say they are all of the same quality and quantity of each other so they deserve a trophy thats the same. but i can assure you theres going to be cars there that BLOW away the other 20 or so. just seems like it takes it away from them.

now.. maybe have a couple specialty awards such as best of show and best engine bay or something like that so the unique cars that stand about about the crowd would be recognized still.

i can understand where you are coming from with top 25 (basically being equivalent) i will be happy either way and have attended shows that have done the classes, and the top xx cars.. but all the same time personally i think we should do best of show, best audio, best interior, best engine, etc.. along with the top 25 or 20 or whatever.. BUT i do not think that a car that wins best of show gets any of the other awards, but at the same time and of the top 25 CAN win one of the best awards.. just my opinion but anyway is goes down im happy

just wondering since i am new to j body cars where is the bash and around what time?
Re: bash car show

cody, check the bash thread right below this.



even with doing top 25 i still plan on doing best of trophies. those will be there no matter which way i went. those do signify the best of the best of those attending

and if we only had 25 cars show up. i'd problaby look at just doing a top 10. the top 25 wasnt set in stone. generally when we do a top amount we try to do around 20-25% of those attending. so if you had 200 cars or more you'd do a top 50. with 100 cars you do around a top 25. 50-75 cars you could do top 10 or 15 maybe. 25 was just the amount of trophies available to me. that nunber would be decided on once it was closer to the event and we have a ball park figure of what we think is going to show up. the show im doing this weekend we had planned on doing a top 25 because last year they only had around 100 cars. just this week the total looks to be over 300 cars so we bumped it up to a top 50 at the last minute.

don't lie i saw the pics of your mantle with the light shining on it just waiting for a shiny trophy. and remember $20 bills in the fuel door during judging go along way towards winning. lol
