Hagerty Youth Judging Program
Designed primarily for youth ages 8 to 14, the Youth Judging Program brings the world of classics to a kid friendly level. The Young Judges are guided through the show field as a group to pre-selected show cars and interact with owners, allowing the judges to learn details, history and fun facts about each. A simplified score card that highlights five basic categories and is rated on a scale of 1-to-5 is used.

A drawing will be held for pre-registrants to win a $200 gift certificate for Moss Motors.

There will be over a hundred old sports car magazines for sale going back to the early 1950’s. Check them out to see if you can find a road test of your vintage car.
