Does the votes contribute to anything in the overall judging ?

ppl don't be discourage by the cars you see , every person has there own likes and dislike and the reason why ppl enter is because they are car crazy for there vehicle in there own way . So it isn't a matter which vehicle is a classic , lambo , import etc etc > that's whats the owner like .

So come out on that day and support , check out the expo and the variety of vehicles that will be on display .

MG MAN u have valvoline specials > must pass through and check it out !!!!!!!!!

Trinidad & Tobago have lots of talent , we should be proud .

Have a bless day ppl !

Thanks a lot. We were indeed a show stopper. We fell short based on overspray around the windscreen rubbers, paint on striker plates and carpet mat was too tacky in the trunk. But we never expected second place

Thanks again to the organisers, well pulled off event. A lot of hard work. Looking forward to another show

was a nice event indeed..however the sound vehicles were epic failures,so much "soundboys" were there and only about 5 vehicles actually sounded real good:
music farm's galant
unique sounds customs hiace
street concepts purple bus (9 15s)
black primera
ballz blue lexus

everybody else in car audio, utter sheit...all the so call big names real sheit....


best of luck to the vehicle that was chosen though.

passed in for a bit....

excellent show....saw some projects that were stunning - e.g supra / signal skyline / bird's r33 - a few rally cars...offroad vehicles, a hamann x6...maserati / aston martin / r35 (infamous pc* 38)...

the vendors at the booths were very helpful - esp wheel wizard who gave away rays & advan's 2012 catalogs

lubetech did a good job showcasing products offered


on the outside....saw more of the sound aspect to car shows....was different from inside but something for everyone...

tucked away in the corner on the outside was a ferrari....a well put together ecr34 and a stock evox (the owners being very helpful when i asked for pics)

then there was the cl63 - was a beast and the owner was kind enough to open the hood for engine pics...

hope this becomes a yearly event-

pity the americans won't get to see it.......range rovers are dime-a-dozen...........the Consul Capri would attract a lot of attention there.........trans-atlantic styling in a tidy British package is something seldom seen stateside

true mg man, but i agree with the judges a bit. its the typical problem with modern day painters. the last guy who painted the car did a fantastic job. kudos to Ballirams from gasparillo. but the previous painter made a mess of the rubbers around the windshields and the judges pointed this out. also the striker plates that were painted in red didnt go down well with them. however, its something we could of corrected before october. nevertheless, congrats to the first place winner. nice ride. somehow i feel my father still gonna buy a ticket to las vegas and attend the show

lol @ Aaron...........at least u doh have people askin you why you copy de civic man bodykit O_O
Loco yuh pops would love SEMA
IMO the judging was very fair and objective..........best I've seen at a local car show.........they spent quite a bit of time on the cars they thought showed the right stuff.........they spent about 3 minutes on mine ;p.......the buss up seat and the rusty undercarriage scared them off :p

Hats off to the organizers. It was a mammoth task, and for a first-time show, I think everything came off great. I had a great time, met some cool people, including the organizers, who while under pressure, still made time to answer my hundred questions throughout the day, in a a very friendly, courteous manner....I felt very welcome at this show, which is in stark contrast to the last show I participated in, where there were 'we people' and 'allyuh people'.........this IMO shows the high level of professionalism, not to mention a certain level of class displayed by the organizing team.

I had a nice chat with two of the judges as well. They were very approachable and willing to chat, within the constraints of their role. While I am sure not everyone will be happy with the results, I think it is an excellent learning experience and point of reference for those of us who want to move our art to world standards. Hopefully this show will signal the beginning of the end of the 'it mine so it bess' mentality..........we now have a benchmark, and specific criteria for how a car should be prepared. The fact that the 1st and 2nd place cars are so vastly different, to me demonstrates how objective the judging was..........and it was very cool that the judges took the time to show where a car scored, and where it fell down.

Regarding the competitors, while the organizers did their best to keep music levels down to sensible levels, at times people got carried away, making it difficult for some of us to have discussions, or even hear ourselves think...this has always been a turnoff to many of us who are in two minds about bringing a car to a car show.....not to mention some guys thought it cool to bang out uncensored versions of certain songs....maybe their families think it's cool, but I felt sorry for some of the parents who were less than amused.....

Quite a few of the 'MK' type folks told me the show 'fail real bad' and 'buss real big', which is regrettable, seeing as that is how they will describe the show to others.........pearls before swine........hopefully the positive reviews here, in ZORCE and on other social sites will make up for this...

My only issue, on a personal note, is the whole social-media voting thing. While the facebook and texting competitions were only a small percentage of the points, in a close call between two cars, it would be unfortunate for someone to lose out simply because the other guy has a bigger social network and campaigned for more votes (shades of chutney soca monarch etc). IMO the social media thing is too easy for people with large followings to manipulate............there are many owners of world-class cars who are not even on facebook etc
