Score Card ?

Postby PSL184 » Tue Mar 24, 2009 10:53 pm

Having just bought a 1960 Traveller which has only done 61000 miles in the hands of one owner I am considering (against my natural instincts) to go concours. Having never ventured, or been even remotely interested in this area before I need to know scoring systems and what gains / looses points etc. Is there a handbook or a guide somewhere that I can review?

Despite all of my protests, it appears that the rules, built up over a number of years, are now to be scrapped, and a new set produced.
It is my opinion, as expressed previously here and to the committee, that unfortunately this will reduce the creditability of MMOC Concours.

So to answer your question, I am afraid that those that I have are no longer of any use. Sorry.

The person you need to talk to is Richard Lee, who is running the Concours events now.

I've PM'd you his e-mail address

Well, I'm not surprised, that signature picture car has been so highly modified that it doesn't look anything like a Minor now, much less a concours example. :o :-? :wink: :lol:

I'm told that the latest guidelines were agreed between people taking part and judging.
I've not seen the old or the new rules, but wish all concours entrants well - I love seeing their cars at shows. :D

Agreed Ray and there is nothing better for reference points in the flesh.

My only concern is over the lowering of standards. Concours should mean something. If everyone can achieve it without any real effort, what's the point? Shiny does not make a concours car.

Indeed shinny doesn't necessarily mean Concours. Thats why anyone wishing to check out this theory should either come along with their car, dont be afraid, the latest Concours Judges are just like you and me, they must be, one of them is a women, or visit an event where there is MMOC Concours Judging taking place. (see the latest edition of Minor Matters for this years Concours event dates). Last year, for the first time, I had an encounter with the New Concours Chief Judge and found him to be very knowledgeable and user friendly, despite living on the wrong side of the M25.
