Hi Tim, I am not all that certain that the judges will keep individual scores. In times gone by, it was a matter of, say, picking the two most outstanding in class, and then they would allot points to each of those two cars for the various categories. I would start off with the concours director, or the chief judge which, presumably would have been Ben De Boer.
Just a note about your pics - I am grateful that you took as many as you did. I was just both too lazy, and too uncomfortable physically, plus the heat, to put much effort into picture taking.

I also found that by staying with Gleaming Beauty, I got to talk to some really interesting and pleasant people. BTW, your pics are excellent - as a matter of interest, the pictures you took of your car PRIOR to the concours - a lot of them are quite hazy and blurred and I think that it might be a good idea to delete those photos, and perhaps even re-take the same shots. Regards Styria

Hi Styria,

Contacted the Concours Director in regards to my score wait to hear back from him.

I will delete the blurred or hazzy pics of the car I took prior to the Concours as the quality of the pics are a bit ordinary.

New camera I have been using I am getting use to the camera I must remember to hold down the button correctly so the photo is taken more clearly.

I did take alot of pics on Sunday probably 40 or more there were so many great cars on display.

Anyhow thanks for feedback about the pics Styria.

By the way Styria how was the Austrian beer had on Sunday?

Mate of mine enjoys the same Austrian or European beer, lucky he was not there on Sunday you two blokes could have had a few beers and a good yarn!


All the best Styria,

Cheers Tim.

As a young bloke I like to keep fit and enjoy going for a bike ride.

One of these bikes would be nice wishful thinking on my part maybe?
