prejudiced

Any one experience prejudice entering your truck into a car show with muscle cars and antiques? My truck gets no respect at all! The judges roll their eyes at the newer cars and trucks.

I’d rather see something out of the ordinary. Seeing a line of 60 something camaro’s with “eye roll” ANOTHER BBC engine...gets old after a minute

Yes I sure have. I work with the president of our local car club and usually tag along for the weekly cruises that they do. Rarely do we get any attention except the one time I smoked a GTO "Judge".

Yea I got had by a couple of muscle cars that were not as clean as mine. Funny thing is they have a modern class at always favors the brand new off the show room floor. 2 mus-wags and 1 marrow,and a challenger. Of course the Mus-wags won.

Ours has no kind of modern class. They did finally bring in a class for bikes which has become quite popular, but if they want to keep it growing they need to try and draw all the automotive enthusiasts.

I find the same thing at car shows. It's funny to see everyone just walk on by with out a glance. Mainly because they don't know what they are looking at.


When someone does stop, I get up and engage them. That is when it gets fun. Granted mine is far from stock, so I take a little time to explain what is going on with this Dodge Ram. Last but not least, I'll fire it up. That's when heads turn.


I've received recognition over classic trucks that came in off a trailer and were chromed from head to tail. Really depends on who is doing the judging.

had the Purple 05 GTx at a show once last year, it was a local Mopar Madness cruise night up in Allentown Pa , the only people who looked at it were the ones who asked my way I would put a stripe on a Dodge ram and call it a GTX "Dude don't you know a GTX is a Plymouth"
actually had one guy say as he walked away, " I hate it when ignorant non Mopar guys try and be cute with making up a new model"
I do miss doing cruise nights, need to get back into it. even if I have to deal with people like that.
