This event will apply the French-style of judging to assess a vehicles level of elegance. The judging standards will best reflect how car aficionados view a vehicle daily. Many factors contribute to the likability of a vehicle: How does it make you feel? Is it striking? Is it an unusual design? Is it a rare car?
Of course, the originality and condition of a car comes into play. Has the vehicle been restored? Or has the original design been improved beyond when it first left the factory? A vehicle’s beauty and elegance make it stand out, but its story is of interest and importance too. What is the historical significance of the vehicle? What is the lineage of ownership?
A car we know of was bought and sold by the same owner five times, that's a fun and unusual story. This shows an owners love for that car throughout life. That kind of appreciation could make you see a car in new ways, or increase another’s opinion of that car, even a judge.
Our team of judges will do their best to choose a vehicle that exemplifies the BEST OF SHOW during this event.
