Car Show Judging

Post by rogerotto66s »

While I am reassembling my ‘66 “S” I would like to compare what I with a checklist used at car shows specifically for a MK1. Also would like to compare cars listed on Bring-A-Trailer.

If you have such a list please post or specify a link.

Now I compare to a list I have compiled primarily from the Parnell book and other topics on this (and other) forums.

Thanks in advance.

The attached was provided by someone in the US.
I am sure someone in Britain can provide something similar or add detail.
If you know someone please provide details.

If it is a Mini Cooper Register event, then you stand more chance of a trophy if your face fits better than your doors.

I would agree with that point at Stamford hall or anything run by the British mini club . It took me a few years of entering concours at beaulieu to win anything . With a lot of mini shows it's how shiny they are but I've found with the Mini Cooper register namely beaulieu that the detail and a correct car do come into it ... ... ken

1966 Austin Cooper s mk1 1275

Come on people .... someone must know something about car show checklists or what makes a MK1 a concours car!

I look forward to you sharing your knowledge.

Thanks

Not something that I have ever had anything to do with.

Having seen a few "Concourse Competitions" I left more baffled as to how the marking works than I was when I arrived.

TBH, I don't think marking is as structured in the UK as it is in the US, it seems to go more on who you are & if your mates are judging.

Funny you should say this!
My post on a US site Had a similar (though opposite) comment - UK more structured than US!

Yet both sides of the pond talk about “concours” quality. Seems everyone has an opinion on what is “not concours quality”
but no one can provide a list of what “is concours quality”.

I guess I will just have to continue reading Parnell’s book and creat a list of my own.
