Best of Show Award Winners at Goodguys 20th Southwest Nationals
The final stop of the Goodguys 2017 tour was the Goodguys 20th Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona. We shared lots of great pictures of our favorite street machines at the show.
Now we would like to share some more eye candy. Goodguys hands out awards all season long and we were lucky enough to feast our eyes upon this year’s winners at the Scottsdale event. Here is a complete list of all the award winners. Below are the images we snapped of our favorite award winners.
2017 Custom of the Year – The “Showmad”
Ron Maier’s of Hillsboro, Oregon took the Custom of the Year award with his breathtaking 1957 Chevy Nomad station wagon also known as the “Shomad”. This one-of-a-kind custom Nomad was built by A & M Deluxe Customs.
2017 Truck of the Year Late – “UNRULY”
Randy Marston of Lantzville, British Columbia, Canada is the proud winner of the 2017 Truck of the Year Late award. His 1966 C10 is a true showstopper and has been rightfully named “Unruly”. It just so happens that this truck was purchased in Scottsdale just a few years prior and has since been transformed into an 850hp supercharged monster! Randy enlisted a friend to do the work and the truck was ultimately built by Roger Burman of Lakeside Rods & Rides.
2017 Muscle Machine of the Year – “Enigma”
Rob Roberts of Houston Texas swooped up the 2017 Muscle Machine of the Year award with his 1971 Grand Touring Camaro. It truly is s sight to behold both when it is moving or parked. The build was completed by Tim Palazzolo and the crew at GAP Racing in Houston.
Even though the car has a perfect paint job and tons of custom work, Rob plans to complete the Power Tour 2017 with it. After all it is a grand touring Camaro, so it should fair well on a long trip. When asked about the future of the car, Rob said “show cars are great, but my philosophy has always been ‘drive it like you stole it’ so that’s just what we plan to do.”
2017 Custom Rod of the Year – “GT ‘51”
We weren’t even sure as to what we were looking at. One thing is for sure… this 1951 Ford Club Coupe has everything that dream-cars are made of. One look at you know it is something special. Owner Bruce Leven of Seattle and Wicked Fabrication spent years making this hot rod a reality. There are so many details that this car could have its own article.
