Lightly Modified???

So, after glancing through the lists of cars that've been classified in that category, I only have one question:

How is a Mustang with stripes, springs, and two 4.0 badges considered "Lightly Modified"?  After looking through the other cars to start faceoffs with, I realized that most of them have quite a bit more money put into them than I have done to Either of my cars.

The 91 is classified as stock.  Why?  Because it only has one performance mod:  My Exhaust.  But if I list that I have a new deck, a little tree air freshener, a dogtag, and some bumper decals, I'm afraid now that I'll get thrown into the Lightly Modified class, along with my 06.

I find it hard to see how a Mustang which has no "performance" parts on it aside from lowering springs [..wooo..] can be classified along with members such as these:

Those are just a few of the cars that make me look at the mod list and go "WTF.  How can I face off against THAT?!" They are all restored, worked on, rebuilt, and beautiful cars with many mods.  I was hoping that maybe a new judge, or classifier, whoever, would see that obviously my car has absolutely NO merit in that class.

But enough bitching:  A Solution.

I know Tim has been thinking of different ways to improve this classification thing. I don't know if this has been mentioned, but have we thought of a point system?

Think about it.  Let's say to be classified in "Stock", your "mod points" need to be under.. 5,000.  So therefore:

Badges: 150pts
Stripes: 500pts
Exhaust: 1500pts
Intake: 1000pts

Ect. Ect.

Then, when you wish to be classified, a checklist could be made and you could simply click which mods you have on your vehicle.  This would automatically add it up for you, and tell you what your potential class would be.  But of course, to discourage all those who claim to have mods, yet no proof [Didn't that just happen..? Hm.] your checklist must be approved by one of those Anonymous DR. Evil judges.

“”

an example:  In a "real world" care show, any 3 or more modifications done to a stock car, automatically dismisses the car from a stock class.  it is then moved to a lightly modified or modified category.  here at GS, its a lightly modified, because the modifications are just that...."light". (in quantitiy)

altering the appearence is just as much a modification as altering the performance.  if your car didnt come with stripes, and you put production stripes on it, regardless is some mustangs came with them....you modified it.  plain and simple.  modifications in general arent just performance based.

Heck, if you want to get crazy, technically if you put a GS sticker on your window, you modified it.

well the same thing goes for me my car i thought my car was stock bc when i bought it it didnt have anything done to it but now that i have tried to dress up the int. and put some different wheels on it im not complaining that im in the light class.  i guess it doesnt have to be a  performance mod. just any kind of mod. if that makes sense
