When I originally wrote this set of articles a few years ago I went into a lot of detail on types of styles and scoring, not all of it is actually relevant today as things have morphed and changed over the years. Back in the day it was really common to have judges overlook the quality and rarity of parts and give the awards to cars with tons of stuff that was not actually high end but hit every section of a score sheet. Now in many of the events we attend the Judges are well informed about the rarity and award extra points for it.
The main thing to keep in mind is to make sure that your build “flows” as our member Brian says. What does “flow” mean? Well it means keeping to a style and having mods that make sense for that style. A good example of this would be taking Russ NSX widebody and putting in a shag and fur interior plus hydraulics.
Remember this; Just because nobody has done it before does not mean its a good idea. There probably is a good reason that nobody has done it before.
