SECTION 1 – JUDGING AND JUDGING GUIDELINES – Revised 2019
The vehicle is to be judged for itself. It should make absolutely no difference where, how, or who restored the vehicle. The vehicle must stand entirely on its own merits. The vehicle must be viewed as an object aside from personalities, cash outlay, professional or amateur restoration.
1. Chief Judge:
The Chief Judge is appointed annually at the Spring Board of Governors meeting. The Chief Judge is the final authority on all matters related to judging and shall make the final decisions. Their appointment will be for a one year period. In case of doubt, Senior Judges, (CCJ’s, Chief Class Judges), should consult with the Chief Judge. The Chief Judge may dispense with any items or combination of items relative to judging if they deem it necessary. Re judging events: The Chief Judge must ensure that enough judges have been selected and are well versed in their role prior to judging. Organization and presentation of the trophies will be made by the Chief Judge or his/her designate. The Chief Judge may choose to dispense with items 2 – 4 below if they feel they can do what is required without the assistance of an Assistant Chief Judge, National Field Marshall and Judging Committee. The Chief Judge may require assistance and should be free to ask anyone they chose to help them. The Chief Judge will liaise well in advance with the May Tour Chairman to ensure a successful May Tour judging format.
2. Assistant Chief Judge:
The Assistant Chief Judge may be appointed by the Chief Judge for a one year term. It is intended that the person will have served in the capacity of a (CCJ) Senior Judge; however, any member of the VCCC would be eligible at the discretion of the Chief Judge.
The duties of the Assistant Chief Judge are:
a. To administer the policies and procedures in all matters concerned with judging;
b. To liaise with the chapters or, in particular, the host chapter of the Annual May Tour providing information and guidance as required;
c. To act in place of the Chief Judge.
3. National Field Marshall:
If there is a Field Marshall
appointed by the Chief Judge their duties will include:
a. To liaise with the host chapter regarding facilities, needs, etc.;
b. To oversee parking of vehicles;
c. To report to the Chief Judge and work with the Chief Judge, Assistant Chief Judge and Senior Judges as required;
d. To be responsible to check off the cars upon completion of the qualifying run.
4. Judging Committee:
A Committee maybe appointed and chaired by the Chief Judge. Application to become a member of the committee is to be made in writing to the Chief Judge. Senior Judges of the immediate past May Tour or the impending May Tour are encouraged to apply to be members of the Judging Committee.
Consultants, as may be deemed appropriate by the Chief Judge, may also be members of the Judging Committee.
The duties of the Judging Committee will be:
a. To review the judging procedures for the current year and, if necessary, make recommendations to the National Board of Governors for any changes prior to the next May Tour;
b. To keep the Judging Guidelines up to date;
c. To ensure that all the trophies are accounted for and that the engraving is kept up to date. Engraving Costs, Keeper Awards and Award Ribbons are to be paid by the National. The Chief Judge is responsible for all of this and may decide not to have a Judging committee. The Chief Judge will be responsible to ensure the trophies are shipped to the Tour location. The hosting Chapter is responsible for receiving them and updating them with the help of the Chief Judge. The Chief Judge will insure a judging meeting is arranged before the judging meet, insure scoresheets are ready, and to oversee the display of Trophies for the presentation process. A written list of the Chief Judges responsibilities are kept on file and available from the National President.
5. Senior Judges:
The Chief Judge will designate the judging teams and appoint the CCJ for each Team. Individuals should notify the Judging Committee or Chief Judge if they wish to become a Senior Judge. The Senior Judge will head a team of two other judges in each vehicle class. It is expected that the (CCJ) Senior Judge will have previous experience and be reasonably knowledgeable in the types of vehicles involved. The (CCJ) Senior Judge would normally have the final say in matters relating to the class being judged but in cases of serious disputes, would refer to the Chief Judge for a final decision. The (CCJ) Senior Judge is responsible to ensure that their team of three judges is available for their judging duties. The (CCJ) Senior Judge is responsible for the collection, verification and submission of the judging scoresheets.
Individuals may apply to the Judging Committee to become judges or apply directly to the Chief Judge. Judges are appointed by the Chief Judge. The following rules will apply to the judging:
Judging Rules & Procedures
The NAACC Judging guidelines are the basis for the VCCC judging format. Refer to www.naacc for the overall approach to judging.
a. When judging, mark on the
judging scoresheet the points deducted. When you have judged the entire
vehicle, add up the total number of points deducted and subtract that number
from 1000 to get the final point score. Sign the scoresheet and turn it in to
the (CCJ) Senior Judge. The Vehicle Owner must be present at the time of
judging unless prior arrangements have been made with the Chief Judge. Judges
will not raise hoods, open glove compartments or trunks nor will they disturb
any setting of brakes, switches, etc. Judges will not raise hoods, open glove box
compartments or trunks nor will they disturb any setting of brakes, switches, etc.
b. Consultation between judges on technical matters is permitted. Each Judge is to judge independently, speaking to no one about point scores. Any questions should be directed to the (CCJ) Senior Judge.
c. Judges are to refrain from discussing point deductions with the Owner. Under no circumstances should a Judge be drawn into a position of justifying any part of the judging with anyone. It is advisable to “scan the field” before judging to get a “feel” for the vehicles present. However, if after judging the number of vehicles you realize you have made an error and have not judged the vehicles fairly, you are at liberty to go back and correct the mistake. Initial each change you make. Under no circumstances should a Judge reveal his/her score sheet to another person.
d. No smoking while judging.
e. Do not use the vehicle as a desk when marking the judging form.
f. Some concessions should be made where replacement items are used to replace original equipment that is no longer available. These replacement items should look and perform as well as or better than original equipment. Examples would be: multi-ply windshield blades, original script batteries with new, old style, script batteries, original style tires, oil filters, fan belts, radiator hoses, etc. No deductions for normal tire wear.
g. All folding tops must be up for judging. A folded down top will incur a 50 point deduction unless the Chief Judge waves this requirement. Before deducting check with the Chief Judge the day of the event.
h. Be careful not to deduct points twice for the same fault, e.g. deducting points for dented headlamp under the “bright work” section and again under the “electrical equipment” section.
i. Points are not to be deducted where modern safety glass has been used to replace original glass providing appropriate logos are reapplied. A vehicle with appropriate logos to receive full credit. Incorrect logos are a 1 point deduction for each window.
j. Points are not to be deducted where turn signals or seat belts have been neatly and carefully installed or where original cowl lamps or tail lamps have been altered to function as turn signals.
k. If there is doubt in the mind of the Judge as to whether an item is authentic or not, points will not be deducted. In cases of uncertainty, the decision must be in favour of the vehicle.
l. In order to complete the safety check it is required that the Owner or their representative be present so that the engine can be started, the lights turned on, brakes applied, etc. If the Owner is not present and cannot be found, no safety check will be performed and, as a result, this section will score zero.
m. Keep in mind, first and foremost, motor vehicles were designed to be driven, there were defects in manufacturing and defects created through use. Therefore, it is essential that penalty points be deducted in proportion to the importance of the defect.
n. When there is some aspect of a vehicle which is unusual or difficult to imagine to be true, it is incumbent upon the Owner to furnish proof of authenticity to the (CCJ) Senior Judge. It is the responsibility of the Senior Judge to recognize and confirm the vehicle is authentic. If in doubt confer with the Chief Judge.
7. Judging Results:
Judging results will be given to the Owner, upon request, at the end of the tour. It is intended that all Owners who have had vehicles judged will pick up their judging results and use them to assist with further restoration work where necessary. Any results not claimed within 30 days after the tour may be destroyed. A permanent record will be kept of all Best of Class vehicles, which will automatically be elevated to the Senior Vehicle Class. Best of Class recipients will receive an information feedback sheet. It is the vehicle owner’s responsibility to fill out and mail in the Best of Class information sheets to the Chief Judge after the May tour. The Chief Judge will not chase owners for this information.
8. Best of Class:
The highest point first place vehicle in each class will be deemed to be the Best of Class and will receive the appropriate trophy. At the same time, if the vehicle scored 950 or higher it will receive a Senior vehicle plaque and oval medallion and will be elevated to Senior Vehicle Class providing it scored 950 or higher. This will mean that the vehicle cannot again enter the same classification as a junior vehicle and will now compete in the Senior Vehicle Class. This will ensure that new winners are eligible each year for the Best of Class awards and, at the same time, encourage older restorations to come out for judging.
9. Best Senior:
All vehicles which have previously won a Best of Class Medallion scoring 950 points or more are eligible to compete in this class. Every Senior vehicle that scores 750 points or more will receive the appropriate 1st, 2nd or 3rd place award. The highest point vehicle of the Senior class, scoring more than 899, will receive the “Best Senior Award” and will be moved into the Preservation category for all future judging events. If the vehicle changes ownership, the vehicle will remain in the appropriate category. All Senior vehicles may compete every year in the Senior category until they have won the category with more than 899 points and are the highest point vehicle in the class.
10. Preservation Award (Refer to NAACC Guidelines):
Only previous Best Senior Vehicles are eligible for this award. At the first meet after becoming a Best Senior Vehicle and where the vehicle scores 900 points or more, it will be awarded a PRESERVATION AWARD PLAQUE. More than one plaque may be awarded in this category. At subsequent meets Best Senior Vehicles that have won the Preservation Award Plaque and score 900 points or more will be awarded an additional Preservation Oval Badge that may be affixed to the plaque. They will also be awarded 1st, 2nd or 3rd place ribbons. Vehicles must score 900 points or move to receive an oval medallion.
11. President’s Award:
Awarded to the two highest point Best of Class vehicles. (Pre-Ear and Post-War)
12. National Association of Automobile Clubs of Canada Award:
This award is given to the highest point vehicle of the meet. In case of a tie multiple awards will be given. There is also a perpetual award that is updated every year. This award should be presented by the NAACC Chief Judge or their designate, i.e. the Provincial VCCC/NAACC representative. The NAACC recipient will receive a keeper trophy and a metal oval numbered NAACC recognition badge that is to be affixed to the vehicle.
13. Specialty Vehicle Categories:
The foregoing general
judging guidelines cover all vehicles being judged with the exception of
specialty categories of vehicles which will issue their own judging guidelines.
Where these specific judging guidelines have been issued by the Chief Judge or
Senior Judge of that category, they will replace the general guidelines
wherever any conflict occurs.
Special Categories will be as follows:
Model A Ford – Model A Ford Club of America
Early V8 Ford – Early V8 Ford Club of America
Classic – Classic Car Club of America
Original – As issued by the Chief Judge
Antique – Horseless Carriage Club of America
Motorcycle – As issued by the Chief Judge
14. Timetable for Judging Committee:
In order for the judging
meet to be successful it is imperative that the Judges have read and thoroughly
understood the “Judging Guidelines” well in advance of the meet. In addition
the “Judging Guidelines” should be read by the host chapter Judging Committee
if there is one. Any questions, possible problem areas, etc., should be sorted
out by the Show Chairperson and the Chief Judge prior to the judging meet.
January Print revised Judging Rules in “The Vintage Car” magazine. May Tour Chairman to be contacted regarding the requirements (i.e. acreage, layout, etc.) of the special Judging Area.
March Letters or notifications to be sent to chapters and/or prospective Judges asking for their assistance. Confirmation is needed. A request to judge should be included in the May Tour application form.
April After April 15th order all keeper plaques made for Perpetual trophies.

May The day of judging, before the judging commences, an “Official judges meeting” is called by the Chief Judge to explain the procedures, layout, etc. It is recommended that this be a breakfast meeting and paid for by the National.
Section 2 – RULES FOR VEHICLES BEING JUDGED
Only vehicles which have
been preregistered for judging by April 15 will be eligible for judging. Only
preregistered vehicles will be permitted in the judging area unless
authorization has been given by the Chief Judge. To be eligible for judging the
vehicle must be available at the appointed time, ready for examination, with
their owner or designated representative present. Vehicles without owners or
their designate will not be started or judged for safety. They will not be
judged in any area unless they have been preauthorized to do so by the Chief
Judge. A notification will be placed on the windshield advising the owner when
the judge team will return. If the owner is not present upon the return of the
judging team, the vehicle will not be judged and it will be disqualified. The
Chief Judge will make the final decision for disqualification from the judging
Vehicles will not be eligible for judging if:
a. They are newer than 1975. Owners of vehicles newer than 1975 that are unique in production or have significant historical aspects may apply to the Chief Judge in writing for vehicle judging consideration;
b. They fail to have safety glass in the windshield;
c. They have a Non-authorized engine or non-authorized body. The word “authorized”, as used in this text, is defined as follows:
i. Authorized by original manufacturers’ literature provided by the Owner.
ii. Authorized by the Judging policies of the Marque Club of the vehicle involved, e.g. Model A – Model A Ford Club of America
d. They did not complete the qualifying run, a total of 5 miles driven on paved roads. The qualifying run may be shortened or dispensed with at the discretion of the Chief Judge.
e. They do not have an approved fire extinguisher. Motorcycles are excepted from this requirement.
A windshield notice will be used to indicate that the vehicle has passed the qualifying conditions. The Safety Check results are recorded on a separate form and added to the total of the main judging sheet.
Automobiles must be displayed with the hoods up and tops up in the case of convertibles or other vehicles with folding tops. A mandatory 50 point deduction will apply if the top is not raised for judging unless the Chief Judge grants an exception. Rumble seats should be opened for inspection. Trunks and glove compartments should be left closed as these areas are not judged. It is suggested that wherever possible the pre-judging run be designed in such a way that the vehicles return to the hotel or motel parking lot or at least to an area which is paved and near the main tour headquarters. This makes the judging much easier, especially in inclement weather. It also does not ‘trap’ people out in rural areas for lengthy periods of time while the judging takes place.

j. The Best Original Class differs from all the rest of the classes insofar as it is intended to encourage the preservation of vehicles in their original condition. Because the rules covering this class are unique, participants are asked to check them carefully before entering their vehicles for judging. If you have any question as to the eligibility of your vehicle, you should contact the Chief Judge for clarification in order to avoid disqualification at the judging site. An eligibility certificate must be completed by the owner of the vehicle. Contact the Chief Judge before the event.

The above examples illustrate that any combination of maintenance designed to keep the vehicle on the road will not, in itself, prevent the vehicle from being judged in this class. Only compliance with the foregoing will allow the vehicle to be eligible for judging. Points may be deducted at the Judge’s discretion depending upon the amount of apparent restoration.
2. All other items will be judged under the same conditions as apply to restored vehicles.

example 1: A 1960 vehicle would receive 30 bonus points
1975 minus 1960 = 15 years times 2 points per year = 30 bonus points.
example 2: A 1935 vehicle would receive 80 bonus points
1975 minus 1935 = 40 years times 2 points per year = 80 bonus points.
Anyone wishing further information or clarification on any of the foregoing should contact the Chief Judge.
