This item has come up numerous times.
Last time I participated to any extent in any such discussions was in 2006. I still have the transcripts of the posts from the old green board. I never throw anything out. Never know when it might come in handy. Copy and paste is a wonderful thing, eh?
Long and short - when I broached the subject, it didn't go over well. I was accused of everything from being a power-hungry Chapter President, to trying to ruin the club, and that my main objective was to create more categories in order to pad my own collection of trophies and awards. People who would never dream of contacting me for motor advice were only too happy to dial me up to call me an ass. well, most of those guys are dead now, and I'm still going....... so be careful about calling me names!
Good luck with it, but it seems its one of them topics that gets talked about when something flares up, then quickly dies as soon as somebody posts about finding a classic OMC with original cracked coils and such....... just sayin'
oh yeah - the original question was merely asking for the difference between antiques and classics - I doubt he expected the bloody Spanish Inquisition, lol
Hope it helps.
