I appreciate your prompt and very informative/helpful reply! One thought comes to mind though: I feel that I would not do very well on a 1000-point system because my ride is somewhat modified...certainly not 'original'. But it's a rare, documented Z24 '68 Sport Coupe, professionally restored with lots of GM options - and would be part of the 50-year celebration. With that thinking, should I go with the People's Choice division instead??
I talked with my daughter about the cost, and she said "go with it, Dad!"...letting me know that the opportunity will probably not come up again (I live in the Dayton area). And you mention that the costs keep going up anyway. So between the two of you, I've decided to spend what is needed to have a great time!
Again, thanks for your input. Do you think you can shed some light on the judging in my case?
