Online Concours Driven MCA Judging

482 Views 10 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Roddster
Is there anyone in the VMF that is a MCA judge that would be willing to judge my early 1970 Metuchen Mustang Mach 1 (VIN 0T05H108212) online? I can provide hundreds of photos and/or take more to accomplish this. I purchased the car in 1978 and restoration took place from 2012 to 2021.

I drive my Mach 1 locally, but I can't drive more than an hour or so because of my back issues. I live in Florida and all the MCA events within driving distance only do modified MCA judging and not for originality. My car can't compete with cars with $15,000-$20,000 paint jobs, etc. I did all the restoration myself and tried to keep it as original as possible, including orange peel in the paint. I would really like to see how it would score in a MCA Concours Driven class.

Is this possible and is anyone willing to help me out? Attached are a few photos.

There is a show in Melbourne this coming fall. Can you make it there?
I know this isn't the info you're looking for, and I'm not a MCA judge, but but your car looks great, nice work-- that color combo is striking.
I can't judge a chili cook-off, let alone a Concours car.
But I know excellent work when I see it.
Congratulations to you on a job well done.
Perhaps investing in a nice enclosed trailer and a superbly comfortable F-250 (also for rent) for towing to shows if you'd like to attend is possible?

Be sure to read the Concours rules on the MCA website: Judging – Mustang Club of America
and ask this question at the Concours section of theVMF Concours Forum
You can also go to ConcoursMustang Forums - Index .
Have you checked the MCA? Maybe there's a judge in your area that can help you out.
Where about in Florida are you? The MCA Grand National is being held at the American Muscle Car Museum in Melbourne, FL over the Labor Day weekend. Enter it there and get it judged for real.

Sorry to be of no help to you. Your car looks great, and I really like the color combination of black w/red interior. One question, though, I never recall seeing the stripes on the hood in black and the trunk lid in white. Did it come that way from the factory?
Try this: Join the MCA and then you can download and print the judging sheets for that car.

First off, it looks nice but the is no substitute for seeing it in person.
One thing I find odd is this: hood stripes being flat black but the deck lid stripes seem to be white. Very odd.
