The blokes that point their finger at any/all faults/flaws on your car to highlight them to their mate/missus. Even though you’ve built the car to the best of your ability or budget would allow or its copped a battle scar along the way from actually being driven, yet they’ve turned up to the event in their girlfriends late nineties... (insert Camry, Commodore, Corolla, Falcon etc here)

I could understand somewhat if they actually owned an old classic them self. It’s like the bloke that has the Harley belt, cap, t-shirt, jacket, key ring, stubby holder, tattoos, wall clock and says he’ll get a Harley one day.

who lean on cars when they are there to judge the cars, just like I saw John Bowe do with his keys hanging off his belt??? I told the owner whom I knew, he was not happy, and had a 'word' with Bowe. Was a HT Monaro GTS BTW. Also when I chatted John about his keys scratched the car, he said "it is only an old car" He was there to judge the cars, not damage 'em!!

I have gone back to my car to find a bloke saying to his mate "he shoulda done this or shoulda done that...', and i just stood next to him pointing other things out. I said something like "what a [Naughty Pottyword]box..", and they agreed, then I walked to the boot, opened it up, and took a drink out of my esky, closed the boot and walked off. They took off in the other direction real quick.

ooh oooh I got another one Sir. The junkie-sh17bag families that turn up and let their feral kids run amok and run their hands, sticks, ice cream, lollies etc all over your car or the poor beggars with their $80,000-$120,000 Hotrods and same feral kids jump on running boards

Years ago a group of blokes were looking at the engine bay of my car and couldn’t work it out what it was
MY wife
Turned around and said it’s a Briggs’n’stratton
The look on her face was priceless
The funniest thing was, believe it or not THEY were the judges 🤔
Don’t forget we live in Cairns Nth Qld

Annette just reminded me of that one, as I was reading all the other reviewers to her
Mother like son I recon 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

A mate has HK Kingswood sedan.
It's black, with a black bench seat interior. It also has a 186S , Opel four speed, sports gauges (same as Monaro but standard speedo). It's as it left the factory, and supposed to be one of one that left Pagewood with those specs..
Dave bought it from the original owner and has the original purchase order form and build sheet to prove it is original.
He got sick of blokes at shows saying they never built Kingswoods like his. Now he takes the paper work sometimes.
Nathan gets annoyed at the people who say he has no right showing our EH because it's bit feral. The ones who love it because of how it is are the overwhelming majority.
A bloke at Coffs once told Nathan he had no right entering the EH. This bloke had a mega dollar HQ wagon show car, and told anyone who would listen that it was. He got nothing, Nathan got one of the judges choice trophies and best Street Driven car that day.

I too find myself looking at survivors and beaters, I just seen drawn to them, can’t really put my finger on it. But I can still appreciate the time, work and cash some people put into their rides. Like I say to anyone who cares to listen, I’d rather ten average classics than 1 big dollar one, it gives you more to play with

To me and my dad used to say the same thing
Any cars that don’t have a lot of keys, paint that looks still sticky wrap in bubble wrap it’s hole life,
Never had a life
True survivor cars will always attract more attention in the long run I think as they can tell a story of days gone bye

They did away with them about 10 years ago up this way
Because a bunch of guys got drunk and started picking fights, harassing people, and a few cars got damage
The event was the Ingham spectacular
Queensland car magazine and Street Machine magazine was there
The event has been canceled every since, it was over the May long weekend and bought in a lot of money into a small town
No one will sponsor it in the business area again the organisation was told due to the bad publishing the town revived in the media
