Congrats Dave, you're face was a picture when your name was called out :D .

Like John said, (good to see you again John :) ) I was also surprised the AA van won nothing.

Me too. The Vusky is a great van of course (well done, Dave) but it's difficult to fathom why the AA Van didn't get any of the 3 awards.

Apparently Rootes produced two vans for the AA for evaluation. Despite the much larger carrying capability than the ubiquitous Mini Van the AA went for BMC's product as they felt that a drawback of the Imp Van was that all the tools and spares would have to be removed every time the water had to be checked or, worse still, the van broke down!

That was sorted - a mix up of rally plaques put in the wrong goody bag s :o

Im only guessing here but perhaps shiny paint and a 5 figure resto isnt the only thing that makes a car a winner - for me its also about the life history of it and wether the owner did most / all the work - after all anyone who has the money can get a show winner if they pick the right person to do the work and just throw money at it - sometimes ( and im NOT saying this is the case with the AA van ) without doing anything themselves .
In that case IMHO they dont deserve a prize as they have actually done nothing whatsoever to it at all apart from earn money to pay for it .
Are the awards solely to do with concourse cars or is there more to it - i didnt tell anyone to vote for mine - they did that themselves , hell i never expected a thing and never even washed it - it certainly wasnt the best conditioned or the tidiest there by a long way .
When the fancy dress was popular the winner was usually the person who hired the best costume and not the person who put the effort in to make their own .
Im just as shocked about this as everyone else seems to be :shock:

Annie says " does anyone think that the Vusky winning is some kind of fix :?: "



Controversial I know so il stand back for a slatting :roll:

We can't tell people how to vote so we have to accept the results. Personally I vote for the car I'd most like to take home which is rarely the best restored or original etc. I'd hate for the club to go down the concourse route, the Most Standard class is good enough for that in my opinion. I have no doubt that the AA van will win future awards.

I'm stunned that Andy's AA van didn't win a prize - its beautiful. However, I'm stunned that is taken this long for the Vusky to win *something* - there can't be many prize winners that have had a car on top of them in a scrap yard, though.

FWIW, I took a concious decision three years ago not to vote any more at National - I'm truly not into the prizes thing, and it just grates on me. I love seeing all the cars lined up and all of them have a story to tell - and I mean ALL of them. But I just can't abide polishing competitions and people being critical of someone else's car. The point I got to was "who am I to judge".

Anyway - congrats, old friend. Its still my fave car in the Imp club. 8)

Your Vusky's award was well deserved, Dave. :D

I was also very surprised that the AA van did not win at least one of the prizes. :? It was like a perfect jewel! As Baz said, though, I tend to vote for the car that I would most like to take home in each category. I am not saying which car got my vote in any category.

Your Vusky certainly wears its years well and has oodles of character and patina - in a very good way! 8)

It was great to see you and Annie over the weekend.

I'd love to take the AA Van home though, being an RAC member I am not sure if I could live with the embarrassment if it broke down…

Totally agree there. The last thing we need is an overly serious competition where a car has to be absolutely perfect: not a spec of dirt on the tyres, undersides you could eat your dinner off (gravity notwithstanding), or any hint of soot in the exhaust. Go down that route and more cars will arrive on trailers and that's no way to enjoy an Imp in my opinion.

That said, one should certainly not dismiss or 'downgrade' a car simply because it has cost a lot to restore. (And what does 'a lot' mean anyway? I'm sure most of us have spent thousands on our Imps.) After all, plenty of no-expense-spared restorations have won Rosemary's trophy before now (her own rally Imp cost a pretty penny for sure!). I will continue to do what I have always done: vote for my favourite car in each category. That may mean the car I would like to own, or it may be the car I admire for all sorts of reasons — maybe because it's been painstakingly and properly restored with respect to the correct panel shape and fit (doing something correctly is NOT an anal pursuit), original, charming or simply makes me laugh (e.g. the white 'Shorty' Imp). And Neil Chard's wonderful Imp always got my vote when we used to have the Most Used and Abused category (am I the only one to lament its passing?). I have no fixed criterion but I know a winner — for me — when I see it.

No Grahame, you most certainly are not. I have even said I'll sponsor it in the past, but apparently the feeling is its somehow not compatible with the modern Imp Club. I also feel that the winner of this category should have been in the lineup for Rosemary and part of the Masterclass. After all, knowing our president's fantastic sense of humour I'm sure Neil would have won years ago!

Correct - we shouldnt but IMHO the owner should play a large part in its creation and restoration and not done anything apart from cough up a large chunk of dough

Agreed but lets also remember that plenty of Imps have won awards that, while not the subject of 'blank cheque restorations' have been restored by a previous owner! And a mega original time-warp car that is (justifiably) admired has not been restored at any expense! That is why I don't allow myself to get bogged down with details of how much it cost etc though of course you're right: respect should always be given to someone who has toiled hard on his Imp and done the bulk of the work himself.

It's well deserved Dave. I was really pleased to read out your name as the winner. You are a popular and very helpful guy with a great car. You deserve the win.

I didn't vote, Jason enjoys the voting more then me so he gets the voting form. I struggle picking favourites. It's a bit like a when I have been to dog shows, I want them all to win.

I have seen the way another car club carries out its voting. All very serious and not the way I would expect our club to go.

Personally, I vote based on the cars I like, ignoring cost. Admittedly sometimes when I've narrowed it down to two or three it could come down to a preference for a particular colour. I'm glad that we have our voting format the way it is, which helps to mix it up a bit. Even different locations seem to make a difference. I'm proud to continue sponsoring the Personalised class award and will do so as long as I can. But I understand why some don't participate in displaying or voting.

And yes Dave, it's been a long time coming, but much deserved.

Well done Dave on your well deserved trophy.
Luckily there are plenty of really nice cars to choose from and we wont all agree on which ones deserve an award. There were some surprises this year, but none of the winners were undeserving (is that a word? :? )
One of the nicest things about this year was that virtually all the cars were displayed in the arena. I really like to see all the cars in one place, it doesn't matter what condition the car is in, it made to national, that's what counts.

Actually, Baz, they reckoned they'd never come across such a marvelous specimen in such a neat package :lol:

While I too voted for the AA van, sorry Dave, its not a concours award we are presenting. I'm sure some people would have voted for the Vusky based on Dave's contribution to keeping the Imp Club forum alive and his very informative posts. I along with others I'm sure await with interest his latest titillation although I don't always reply I appreciate the time he takes to contribute, its like voting for an old friend. So its a well deserved from me.
