New car show catagory

By thejudge

Our show Cruising on the River is going great
but our problem is that we draw the best cars from @ 6 states
these are some great cars and the lower budget or home built cars can't compete with these.
were trying to open this new category for the average builders.
we need to come up with a name for this category.
so far we have come up with the name "HANDS ON"
such as "hands on best of show" or "best hands on chevy"
we don't like class one or class two we don't want to degrade anyone's car by labeling it class two
please comment and let us know what you think about this one or please suggest a new one
if anyone has done this already what did you use?
Thanks Thejudge

I have seen a class called "homebuilt" but I like the Trailered and Driven idea.

You can always go with "Driven" and "Trailered". All driven cars must have been driven to the show. No bringing the vehicle to a parking lot nearby and driving around the corner. I also like "Daily Driver" but very few of us actually drive our show cars every day. I currently have put 18,000 plus miles on Old Blue since March 2006, but I don't drive it every day.

What about Home Grown or like you stated but overlooked Home Built Class? Think outside the norm here and emagin if you were winning for something you built at home what would make you proud to tell your friends you got a trophie for? Best of show Back Yard Build etc etc etc. I can think of many more I have to each year at our benefit shows here in Bronson Michigan!

well in responsce to 63409's coment some of the guy's
that you have mentioned Aren't Ametuer's I think some builder might be offended by that - I my self have been building cars sence I was six years old, there are so many dif. names you could use it would be imposlble to list them all but HOW ABOUT-( Custom Cruisers)
All the Peolpe I know say I'm a back yard mechanic, even though I have two Garages I work out of -they just say that because I do all the work Myself with out Sponsors or a team of poeple helping.
If I don't do it -it don't get done!
