      I'm sure the club that runs this show wants to see these things so they know how to improve their fall show
      just an fyi on the attendees the club running the show doesn't make the pricing nor do the have the control over the people at the gate letting the cars in. i was speaking to one of about the bmw's etc. Raceway Park controls all and any pricing for entrance and show ... tell me where u can go to a show at a place that holds big venue's and its cheap? Think not buddy!!!!!!! Not the clubs fault and as far as judging goes i would like to see u do a better job at it, being all the flaws u say u have on ur own car!!!!!!!

      You missed his point - venue sets pricing. Pricing is based on what it costs them (the venue) to run the facilities and pay all their employees, security, and track insurance. At the end of the day, the issue is price, but operations cost will always go up. The shows you mentioned, having never been to any, are all held in parks. Parks are state, city, or town funded, so their pricing is significantly lower than a private venue like Raceway Park.

      However, while Raceway sets the pricing, organization, show categories, and judging procedures can definitely be handled better by the presenting groups (whomever it may be) - Raceway Park doesn't know their audience, only the presenting sponsors do.

      I had walked past a guy at his car just as the awards had started to be handed out, and he said to his buddy "did we win yet?" I thought to myself, really, your on bags with baller wheels. That's it. You didn't even have your hood up. Then after his class winners were anounced, he threw a tantrum.

      I saw no problems with the show besides the two cars blasting music. Awards were handed out promptly at 4:30, as stated in the flyer.
      Get over it.

      not too happy with the result, two years ago got second place because first place went to a beetle with a " CHEVY V8 MOTOR" last year the judges was asking each other how to judge an air-cooled car and yesterday it was just few cars in my category and I was the only one showing the front lid and the engine, so how somebody else got more points than me? . I was thinking the consider the work and effort you put into your car ....

      i didnt win, ill never go back. oh wait, i have learned its not even worth it to turn in your registration paperwork to be judged. who cares if you win a trophy or not. i could see if there was a decent amount of cash involved but really?

      I had a great time, yeah it was expensive, but It was my first show of the year and I enjoyed checking out what everyone did over the winter Definitely some things that can be improved but other then that It was still worth it in my opinion

      Only thing I didnt agree with was the show pricing, on the flyer it said $25 to show, then when you get there and give them $25 to show they said oh its 25 to show in the non judged category and $30 to show if you want to be judged. Are they paying judges now? Unless thats the case I didnt understand why but either way I still had fun

      The extra 5$ is probably to pay for the trophies or something like that

      I figured the extra $ they put on top of the regular admission would cover that, so that would be an extra 5 from each person who showed in the "non-judged category", and an extra 10 per person on top of regular admission for people who wanted to show and get judged. Thats alot of money

      I had a horrible time. I didn't see any cars on bags, no one had sick camber, no vrs in shaved bays. It was just awful. Never going again.

      Maybe it was just me but i felt like there were a lot more cars at past spring show n go events.
      This year the spectator lot and show lot felt a little empty imo.

      less cars = higher costs as well.
      i have to say my motivation for SnG isn't all there but it is nice and close and WTF is $20 to hang out with some friends for a day and gather some ideas for my car.
      i rolled in late around 11:15... first time I didn't leave 8am for SnG but i had a good day... and it's the first time I didn't stay for judging.
      after 4 years of doing this i realized i built this car for me unlike my mk4 that i built for everyone else (while i have 2 trophy's here for it).
      i probably will always attend just to kick it with some buds.

      Looked stock. But far from it. Just because its not a pimp wagon doesnt mean its stock. Stock suspension is super high up. Put a car on coils next to a bagged one and duh... its gonna look like a jeep

      lol yeah true. I wasn't bashing the show. Simply stating it seemed like less people were in attendance than last year.

      I go for the swap meet and drag races. I walked through the show field and only saw a few cars that made me say wow that looks nice. There are less people being creative for some reason. It's seems like everyone simply does a vr with a shaved bay or bags and wheels, that's it. People aren't trying anymore and then threads like this show up. Well over 6 years ago when I started going to shows people actually tried. I remember seeing crazy ass cars back then. They did what they saw was unique. Now everything is generic. I knew what I was going to see well before the show and that's just sad. I'll continue going for the swap meet and the drag races. Those are the only two aspects of the show that I can't already foresee what people are going to bring out.
