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!

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
