Thanks one and all for the help.
I wish there was an experienced judge near me. I am in south Texas with no AACA chapters close to me.
Looking at my car I came up with the following information:
The car is a 61 Studebaker Lark, which I kept as original as I could. It would go into class 27 D. I evaluated my car according to AACA guidelines and came up with a score of 336, which would be a second junior at best. (The biggest area where I lose points would be my upholstery which is tastefully done but not original. (The original material is not to be found).
This car is sort of a driver and when I go to some car deals, I drive it because I do not have a trailer or big truck to pull it (If I go to the Galveston TX meet I need to drive the car which is 358 miles one way) Anyway that is where I am at.
I thought the mail in form and my choice ie DPC or Judging is a final decision when I mail the form.
Again thanks for listening and the help. It is appreciated.
