Just wondering whey a drain in the fuel tank is required on a show car? And does this take away or is it required in concourse car? I know the original tank didn't have one as this car still has the original tank.

1968 Cougars have a drain plug in the fuel tank. 69 may or may not have the drain, and 70 or later no drain. If you install a non drain tank and have the Cougar judged at a national show. Points will be deducted for not having the drain. How do you know for sure the tank in your Cougar is original and hasn't been changed in the past.

Could it be that the regulations or perhaps local club regulations require a drain plug on showcars in the event of indoors shows ?
I know that when my local club was looking into having an indoors show, thaat the company the rented out the building demanded that we drained the cars for gas, and placed trays under the cars, to avoid oil spill on the floors, didn´t matter if the cars where not leaking anything at all, it was their requirements.
