After closely examining 128 classic Pontiacs and GMC pickups, our 39 judges made the following decisions:


Stock/Restored Stock Classes: (A through Z except X)

The vehicle is as it appeared when new, plus any accessories available for the car in that era. Any item that has been replaced due to wear is permissible as long as the part is as close to “stock” as possible.
