Restorers Class Evaluation
This seminar will be presented by Dave Vestal, MAFCA Past-President, Life Member and one of the originators of the Restorers Class. As we all know, a car cannot be competitive in high point judging if it is driven regularly, so the Restorers class was created. The purpose of the Restorers class is to recognize those owners and cars that are driven to meets and around home while still being basically stock. Cars are not judged against one another, but rather evaluated for originality.
Putting the Fun in Era Fashions
Think that Era Fashions are just a bunch of stuffy old clothes? Hopefully this seminar will dispel that myth and make you appreciate another aspect to the hobby.
