Preservation-This group is the opposite of Preparation, it is reserved for cars that have been faithfully maintained and kept original over many years, so you will see mostly older Porsches here with decades of careful care and attention. Cleanliness is not so important, but all of the original bits and pieces certainly are! Restoration-This group is made up of cars that have been restored to their original condition. This time consuming process is evaluated by experienced teams of judges, some of whom actually remember what these cars looked like when they were new! Cleanliness and originality are judged, making this group a difficult proposition for entrants, so thankfully there are cars judged in Touring, top only, and Full, top and bottom of the car is judged. Performance-This group of cars ranges from all out racers to modified street cars, most of them ���personalized��� to their owner���s liking. You will see a lot of variety in this group, which is judged on cleanliness only and feature highly modified and performance oriented Porsches. I hope that little refresher course on the Parade Competition Rules helps you spot the different groups at the Concours, and make more sense of the myriad of awards and trophies at the banquet. You can also browse the Porsche Corral and Historic Display for cars that are not competing, but certainly add a lot to the display. Feel free to come a day or so early and enjoy the prep area (air-conditioned!) in the convention center and see all the work that goes on behind the scenes of our Day at the Concours! Won���t you join us there? For more information see parade2011.pca.org April 2011 29
