I love Shawnee, and the location. I probably wouldn't show there again unless they do club parking or it's a booth.

LOL! at people whining about my GTO in the show...has to be at least 1 proper car in the show other than the bmw's.... go ahead and say what you want about the fact that I should get or "vdub" or something stupid like that since I already have 3 caddy's at home
Custom Powder Coating in NEPA.
And to everyone whining about the mk1 judging. Knowing all 3 judges personally, and knowing one of them had the mk2 with the cage in the jpc fab booth, and another one who worked for paul at fast road when fast road was in its prime, and the other "jdm" guy. They went a lot off cleanliness and had a clearly defined checklist. Having held a show this year, and not having heard much bitching about our judging. I can say i expected some, and i expect some every show. They were told what class to judge, they didnt pick. If you didnt win and you felt you should have... oh well. Keep it to yourself, and go harder next year.
Had a great time today!!!! Seen some nice stuff out there today !!!!!!!!!!!

It was a great show, just kinda upset that a Stock TDI passat on H&R springs with a vinyl wrap placed over a CCR with a lot of work done to it.
I'm sure a lot of work goes in to vinyl wrapping a car. He probably got points for it. I thought it was real paint until I inspected it closer. It looked awesome.
My bone stock MKVI JSW took 2nd place. I cleaned the heck out of it and placed. Probably straight 5's across the board which can put you above people that have mods, but that aren't tastefully done. So, say there are DVD headrests, but the wires aren't tucked under the carpet and are visible and some are spliced and hanging loose. You lose points for that. It's not all about your modifications, it's about how well they're done and how well everything flows with the car.
I understand that how well the modifications are done plays a part in it, but if you looked over the CCR, you would see that badly done modification wasn't an issue.
I don't want to imply that people didn't put work into their cars when I don't know all the details for sure.
Instead of jacking this thread, please post any replies regarding my post in this thread:

I was not a CC or Passat judge for that matter. I wasn't referring to the other post either. I was just commenting on something she said about modifications done nicely and I agreed. That's all.
You don't need to bring your thread over here. We understand your frustration, but it wasn't even your car. It was your friends car. I can't speak for the other judges.
I commented and said "If anyone would like to see what I said about my experience with how much fun I had, they can check the other threads in the DOTD forum." ..
No big deal. Just relax..
cmon, complaining on this thread too? - at waterfest i lost to a completely stock and i mean COMPLETELY stock b6 passat. I did not bitch, as long as you are happy with your car and had a good time with your friends..

Thanks to Bill and the Blitzkrieg Tuners group for a great time!
I appreciate the ability to park with who you arrive with and not having to spend an entire show sitting behind my own car by myself on the far opposite end of the show-field (I can do that [and do] in the garage).
Once we moved along the fence to be able to set up the canopy (those of you who know me, know that I'm often working during shows), we were good to go - and after we started setting up, others who drove in later with canopies were parked accordingly to accommodate (yes, I'm an early bird - sorry). But, like I said, in a New Beetle, I am admittedly spoiled by the usual lack of company and therefore the gain of space...
Special thanks to the judges (often a thankless task) for 1st in class New Beetle (and thanks to the other new beetle owners for coming out - I appreciate competition and camaraderie) and Best Theme!

I spoke with the judges while they were judging my car, and while i didn't win anything, i did get some great pointers as to exactly what they were looking for and how everything was scored. they even used a few different cars as examples for certain area.
judging isn't an easy thing to do because someone will always think their car is better than someone else's. so i have to give props to all the judges.
good job on the show, guys. i will definitely come back again next year. hopefully i'll be able to step my game up and compete a little better, but if not, it's still a great location with great cars and great people. VIP parking all the way.
