I think that you might have missed my responses above about the judging methodology. Yes, Forest Grove is a lovely, multi-marque event with a number of highly experienced judges evaluating spectacular cars across 52 classes, one of which is for Ferraris. It is not a Ferrari Club of America concours. Not sure who you talked to at FG about me but the chief judge for FG was one of the judges on my team at the NWRFCA concours from 2015-2018.
The Dino that was called out by Scott M (who did not attend the 2015-2019 events, BTW) participated at the specific request of the Concours committee with the understanding that it was not fully complete and against the owner's initial desire. That said, it was objectively judged by the IAC/PFA standards (we judge cars and not people's addresses) and it scored higher than the other Dinos. It earned its award even though it was missing some bits. If you'd like to see how scoring is handled, please see ferrariclubofamerica.org. Regarding your comment on Classiche, that program will certify the engine and transmission but not necessarily many of the other details and a well-documented Ferrari does not need that validation.
