The bottom line is... if it was my car and I truly wanted to keep the
factory originality,
I would have done what every other collector does with a barn find vintage
original car.
You get another set of wheels and new tires to move the vehicle around.
Then to keep the
"factory original" class for a proper Concours, the old aged tires are
mounted with tubes
in them, or injectable airless rubber, "if they are salvageable", and then
only installed
for the event. This is how it's done at prestigious concours events.
As I said, we should have the option to make exceptions. But I totally
understand the concours
committee wanting to keep uniformity and prestige with the CORSA Concours,
and not cheapen
the event.

To say CORSA is crazy or has blundered is in my opinion a ridiculous
opinion. There is this new
invention. It's called contacting the Concours committee and asking about
classification, "before
bringing a vehicle to the CORSA event!

We have rules with Autocross also, to be followed!
