Autorama Houston

I was invited by the Gulf Coast GTO Club to put my Old Goat into the Club display at this year's Houston Autorama.

https://autorama.com/attend/houston/

If any board members might be attending, pls respond to this post when, and I'll try to be there to say hello.

Awesome. Mine has been in the Dallas Autorama for the last several years.

What's your car like? 100% stock? Modified?

Hi, Bear. Mostly stock '67 coupe. Resto started '92. I bought in '94 while living in Nola. P/S, p/b, a/c, no console, 4 sp. Only real mod is the 3:55 Auburn locker that replaced the orig 3:23 when it blew up a few years ago. It's a 20/20 car. From 20 ft away you don't see it could use $20k of work.

Lol... I hear you there. So, no headers, aftermarket intake, or other parts that would "stand out" to a judge as not being factory?

I asked because I struggled for a few years with my '69. It's too modified to show as stock, not modified enough to compete with cars with over the top paint, blowers sticking through the hood, etc.

Then one year I actually read the ISCA rule book and found a class that seemed to fit the car pretty well. "Competition Stock". For the last couple of years now I've explicitly requested that class on check in. (You do have to ask.) When the official checks the rule book, he sees that the car indeed qualifies for that class and puts me in it.

I've earned trophies every year since I started doing that.

So - it'd be a good idea to spend a little time looking at the ISCA rules to see if there's a class your car fits really well into.

Here's a pic from set-up on Wed. A LOT of work. We have a pair of '05's, a '65 ht and a '65 vert, a '70 'vert, and my '67 coupe. Nice mix.

Well, show's over. I got a 3rd place in "Restored". Other members got awards as well. Comment was that the show seemed to be a little light on ttl nbr of cars compared to years past. Had fun nonetheless.
