About award selection

We do not have formal judging, per se; volunteers select cars to win trophies based on the criteria for various memorial awards. In recent years, we have had two awards per major decade and for various types of vehicle to make sure awards went to cars of all years and types — that there was an even distribution of awards representative of the cars entered. We have roughly two hours to select all the cars to receive awards; thoroughly inspecting each car in this limited time is impossible, but the volunteers do their best to be fair. Restored Rusty Relics members are not eligible for any awards.
