The following are descriptions of each class of vehicle represented here at Rallye66.
Before you register for the following classes please read the descriptions closely. It is very important that each car be placed in the correct class so that everyone has equal opportunity to earn a trophy.
*ALL KIT CARS AND FIBERGLASS or STEEL REPRODUCTIONS MUST BE PLACED IN THE CUSTOM GENRE/STREET ROD CLASS.
2017 Show: The cars will be broken into three broader genres: 1. Muscle Car 2. Custom 3. Majors
Has there ever been a greater era of automobiles than the Muscle Car era? Well, there probably has been but at the very least it holds a great spot in all of our hearts. Isn’t that why we do all this?
In the era of these great cars it was Ford against Chevy, Pontiac against Buick and MOPAR against everybody, lol. It was the spirit of competition that drove these cars faster and faster putting out greater and greater power. From the pure muscle to the pony cars, competition drove the owners of these great cars to improve and tinker until they had the ultimate car.
We would like to revive that great competition of the iconic machines in our show. Sadly, we can’t settle it at the track but we can revive it at our show by once again having these great cars compete directly against one another in one great Vintage Muscle Car Class. A class where all makes and models, through a specific range of years, battle in the park to be called the ultimate Muscle Machine. A class where Corvettes, Chargers, Challengers, Camaro & Firebirds, GTO and GSX, Mustangs, Cougars and Torninos battle for the top spot.
Vintage V8 Muscle: This class covers the years of Muscle Cars from ’64-’81. As the title describes these will be cars born with a V8 and this class covers ALL Makes and Models of Muscle Cars from those years. The TOP 10 of this class will receive awards.
Vintage ‘Vette: This class covers the years of Corvettes from it’s ’53-’82. This is a Corvette only class and covers ALL FACTORY Models of Corvette. The TOP 3 will receive awards in this class.
Modern V8 Muscle: Thankfully technology has caught up with the emissions regulations and we have been able to enter into another great era of power to weight ratio cars. With the re-emergence of some of the great original era cars like the Challenger, Mustang, Camaro and even the 4 door Charger the rivalry between the great three American car makers has been renewed. This class covers the years from ’82-’00 or ’01-’17 and cars born with a V8 from the factory. ALL smaller engine versions need to go into the Modern Major Class. The TOP 5 will be awarded for both the ’82-’00 and the ’01-’17 Year divisions.
Street Rod: The “Street Rod” class is intended to include all makes and all models that have been drastically changed from their showroom debut. This does not include cars that have been “factory changed” but cars that have been customized and changed by yourself or a custom builder. Changes could include but aren’t exclusive to paint, changed body lines, shaved doors, body panels, ground effects, etc…
Rat Rod:Typically late 20′s through late 50′s vehicle (car or truck), significant customization including chopped top, channeled body over frame, swapped parts from other vehicles, modified grilles and lights, unfinished appearance.
General Motors: This class would include all cars made by any of the General Motors Divisions except those that would qualify for the Muscle Car or Custom Genres.
FoMoCo: This class would include all cars made by any of the Ford Motor Company Divisions except those that would qualify for the Muscle Car or Custom Genres.
MOPAR: This class would include all cars made by any of the Chrysler Divisions except those that would qualify for the Muscle Car or Custom Genres. AMC would be included in this car class.
