  • Award at Lancaster

    Congratulations to John (JDP) for a first place 399 point award on his GT Hawk!

    John, what was the one point deduction for? Would you share a few photos of you car? I was judging cars and didn't get much time to look at other cars. Please include a photo of your hood latch, as this should answer the question of authenticity.

    Gary Ashe got a first place for his truck, but I don't know the number of points.

    I think Guido got an award for one of his wagons, but unfortunately I can't be any more specific than that.

    I'll brag a little and say that I received a 2nd place award for editing my chapter's news letter The Down Easterner. I feel awfully proud since there are so many good newsletter out there.

    I'm sure there are other forum members that received awards but sadly I cannot say more than that.

        Will there be a complete listing of the judging results available somewhere before the TW issue, or will we have to wait till then?

            Wow, congrats JP! As was Bams50, I was looking for a list of awards, as well. Will it be posted? The Packard Hawk owner next to me was fretting all day after his was judged and I don't know why; his and JDP's were the standard of perfection.

              Great to meet you, Dick. Congrats on your win, as well. Hope you made it back to the "Lower Ozarks" and thanks for explaining the what they (the lower ozarks) are...and aren't!

                    Just beautiful!

                    The front looks sooooo good without bumper guards.

                      Thanks for posting those, Jeff. I didn't get down there before my memory cards filled. I'm not a bumper guard fan either. Really something, John!

                          John said it was for a paint chip. It's in his thread about the car titled "Sid did well".

                            Bezhawk: Good eye, but the deduction for gear-drive hose clamps was eliminated a couple years ago. The reasoning was that current-production radiator hoses are thinner-walled than were OEM hoses 45 years ago. When an OEM spring-type hose clamp is used on a modern hose, the hose may not have enough meat to be sealed by the spring-type clamp, allowing leak(s) because the restorer is trying to be authentic.

                              George Rohrbach also got a 399 in the modified class, which is quite an accomplishment when you consider that his car is close to 30 years older than the typical entry. Unfortunately I didn't really get to spend much time looking at the modifieds as they were all the way on the other end of the show area. He seemed very pleased with his showing and was very posessive of the plaque :P
