MCACN TRIPLE DIAMOND AWARD
Who...What, and Why
In the Corvette world,
there are several prestigious awards that only an elite group of collectors are
able to achieve. The level of commitment it takes to obtain NCRS Top Flight ® or
4 or 5 Star Bowtie® and Bloomington Gold Certification® or Bloomington
Survivor® status is no easy task.
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is here to offer
another opportunity for the elite group who have made the commitment to restore
and show the very best reference level Corvettes. For those who have achieved
the NCRS Top Flight ® or NCRS 4 or 5 Star Bowtie® and Bloomington Gold
Certification® or Bloomington Survivor® status we offer what many consider the
ultimate achievement; The Triple Diamond Award.
Knowing that the credibility of any award is only as good as what is
behind it, we have assembled a team of experienced Judges that have literally
hundreds of years of combined experience in the Corvette hobby. The Muscle Car
and Corvette Nationals judging team is led by Judging Chairman Bill Braun, who
has served as the Judging Chairman for Chicago's Chevy Vettefest for 30 years.
Mr. Braun is an active collector who currently owns several of the country's
finest restored Corvettes, and he is also the current Region V Director for NCRS a
position he has held for over six years and past ILNCRS President. The rest of
our Triple Diamond judging team consists of Corvette enthusiasts who are
currently involved with the Bloomington Gold show and many are active members
for the National Corvette Restorers Society. Many serve as members of the
judging staff for these prestigious events also. Our Judging team members
combine years of hands-on experience researching, restoring and enjoying their
own Corvettes. Their knowledge is based on this experience and a true passion
for the Corvette.
To properly judge Corvettes, it takes years of
research and a willingness to study build techniques and reference material. Our
team members have made this commitment to our show and to the hobby. We are
honored to have the hobbies finest, most respected, and acknowledged authorities
as members of the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals judging team. Mr. Braun and
our judges are ready and anxious to discuss our judging criteria and address any
questions you may have pertaining to our requirements and procedures.
