As a Bowtie judge I can say that repro parts are accepted in Bowtie judging BUT they must be of the highest quality. If they look like junk then we deduct the appropriate points. If the car being judged is going to legends the following year we recommend to the owner that any repop part be replaced with GM or original if possible. I'm not going to get into the rest of what has been posted lately because it falls outside the scope of this discusion. Rick H.
