  1. "Casual Show & Shine" which is judged by show participants.
  2. "Best of Show" which is judged by a team of judges. Cars will be graded based on cleanliness of exterior, interior, trunk, engine compartment, wheel wells and underneath as can easily be seen. Originality and authenticity are not judged; points will be balanced so a brand new car does not have an advantage over an older car. All car models may enter this class.
