i have a ford A that i will be putting through nat'l judging soon. it has 6" seat adjusters on the front seats and also the vin# on the engine does not match the insurance / registration because its a replacement motor. will these two items affect me in any point deductions? FYI model A vin numbers are stamped on the frame rail underneath the front fenders/ running board so its not viewable.

I am not familiar with the seat adjusters. If they are aftermarket accessories, you could potentially lose some points for those. As ted sweet mentioned, the Engine number does not matter in AACA Judging.

aaca doesn't check vins

Ted:IIRC- Kinda surprised that when I took my 69 Z28 to last years Grand National in Moline IL that no one from the AACA even checked my VIN on

the car. How do they even know that was the correct car from my registration?? They seemed to be more concerned that my fire ext. was fully

charged then checking any credentials for the entry. All other organizations check the VIN before the judging even begins; if any irregularities

exist the car will not get judged. I'm not complaining as I do like AACA but find it strange they do this. Larry

From the Judging guidelines:

"The burden of proof as to the accurate representation of a vehicle is the sole responsibility of the owner."

"Misrepresentation of vehicles: The Class Judging Committee reserves the right to remove from the AACA list of First Prize winners, any vehicle judged after January 1, 1982, that is found to have been falsely represented at a National Meet."

I guess it is best explained that AACA trusts its members to be honest, but being pragmatic, has a rule to deal with any falsely represented cars. I am not aware of any examples where this has caused any problems.

This is just my opinion: Since AACA checks nothing on the credentials of the cars I don't see why your car needs a plate. But: Depending where you park your

trailer the local police may require a plate to travel on public roads to the judging field; so beware. Larry

mitch h,

It would be impractical to get a non-registered car to the showfield in most if not all meets. There may be some meets that you would not have to travel on roadways to get from a trailer parking area to the showfield, but most would involve traveling on public roadways. You do not need a license plate on a vehicle for AACA judging. There are no deductions in AACA Judging for not displaying tools that came with the car originally.
