Summary of CLC Judging Guidelines

 -also posted in the August 2018 1963/64 Cadillac Chapter Newsletter

Below is a summary of the CLC Judging Guidelines as defined in the Official 2018 CLC Judging Manual.  I encourage all of you to step up and volunteer to be a judge at the next GN. It is a very rewarding experience and you will learn a lot about our judging system and the cars you judge.  
Click Here to download the CLC Judging Manual.
Click Here to download a PDF version of this Summary Document.

There are 6 Divisions: Primary, Touring, Preservation, Specialty & Unique, Modified, and Display Only.  These Divisions are further broken down into specific classes:
   - 99 classes for Primary and Touring
   - 8 classes for Specialty and Unique
   - 4 classes for Modified (Hot Rods, Resto Mods, Mild Customs, Radical Customs)
   - and Preservation classes varies GN to GN

- Primary and Specialty & Unique are for 1999 & prior (changes to 20 year old rule in 2020).
- Touring is for vehicles 10 years old or older.

Award Scoring is straight forward with Primary, Specialty and Unique Division Cars as follows:
   - Senior Crown  - 99 points or more
   - Senior Wreath - 98 or more
   - Senior            - 95 or more
   - 1st  - 90 or more
   - 2nd - 80 or more
   - 3rd  - 70 or more

To encourage daily drivers, the Touring Division scoring is less stringent with the following award requirements:
   - 1st 80 points or more
   - 2nd 70 points or more
   - 3rd 60 points or more

As noted in the August 2018 newsletter, there is a lot of misinformation on the web regarding the new process, and believe a summary such at the one I have included will help shed some light for those that have not read the new manual.  Judging is very rewarding and I encourage all of you to step up and volunteer at your next Grand National!

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
