First, A Big Thank You to CLC Chief Judge Bill Anderson for taking on this daunting task of overhauling the CLC judging system.  The old system was very good, however, I believe what Bill and the judging committee are striving for will result in a truly great system for judging our cars.

With that, I hope most of you have had a chance to check out the changes happening in CLC Judging, and have read the December 2014 Judging Committee Report and 'Future of CLC Judging' article in the March Self Starter, both penned by Chief Judge Bill Anderson.

Some of the many changes include 2 new judging divisions: Modified Cars and Concept/Prototype Cars, of the Touring Class score ceiling, inclusion of cars 10 years old and older in Touring Class, better training for judges, time requirements for leaving cars on show field, inclusion of all judges scores, and changes to the judging system that emphasizes authenticity judging vs 1st, 2nd, 3rd car vs car judging. 

After the 2014 Grand National, Bill had requested feedback from all of the judges and I was very pleased to see a few of the recommendations that I made were addressed. I am sure many of the other judges expressed similar recommendations, and believe these changes will make our judging system fair and equitable for all.

There is so much to consider with these changes, and I will continue this conversation more in depth later, but wanted to make sure everyone had seen the December 2014 Committee Report and Bill's Self Starter Article.

I have inserted a scan below Bill Anderson's article in this month's Self Starter and have attached it and the Judging Report as a PDF file to this post.

Doing disc brake conversion and I need to change out the rims--what to get?

Posted by Preston Bealle on December 7, 2017 at 3:55pm 20 Comments

I'm having a mechanic change to '64 Deville convertible to disc brakes. He used the spacers that came with the kit but one side takes 2 spacers and the other 3, and there is a slight disconnect from the center hub from being so far out. It appears the best solution would not be further tinkering with spacers but a deeper 15" rim made for disc brakes. Does anyone know what rims might work that will allow the existing Cadillac hub caps to fit?  

I have read everything I can find on disc…

The Mileage reading on your speedometer

Posted by Tony and Ginny 429 on November 4, 2017 at 10:57pm 20 Comments

I hope i am not breaking anyones bubble but if you choose to remove the speedometer you can change the mileage on these cars to anything you desire it to be by just adjusting some of its internal parts and changing the numbers

That can lead to a lot of misconduct and cause you to by a car that is not correctly represented by its mileage

Just a heads up to study other aspects of the car to see if the mileage feels right for the wear and tear you may be looking at on a given… Continue
