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!

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
