Congrats on the award. They are addictive. I've been in a few dozen of all sizes etc and have a blast checking ut other cars and meeting all types of people and beating out some really nice rides.
Plus, I find it a great way to keep my car spotless all the time.
If I go to a car show every weekend during the busy seasons, then it gets washed and detailed 2-3 times a week.
It stays vacuumed and waxed.
You also get ideas for what to do to your ride.
