It's OK to be disappointed and even a little upset if the judging doesn't seem fair. After all, you spend time and effort getting the car ready and pay your money to enter in hopes of recognition. Yes, I belong to a club. Yes we lobby other members for votes in people's choice shows. Facts are, people may tell you they are going to vote for you but they don't always do it. I get angry at the Hot Rod crowd. They are definetly closed minded. They will open the show to all makes, all models, but come trophy time nothing newer than 1973 wins anything. being the Activities guy for our club, I keep a list of these shows and don't advertise or recommend them at meetings.
