Good Guys Del Mar 2015

We attended the Good Guys Del Mar show once again. Not only to display our new product but to hand out a very important award for our family. Greg and I look forward to picking the winner of the Boyd Coddington Memorial award every year. We are thankful to Good Guys for having us and to all the nice cars that are present that make it really difficult sometimes to just pick just one winner. This year John Cowell’s 35 Ford 5 window stood out above all the rest. Very tastefully done and every inch of this car had some serious attention paid to it. John took the car to Keith over at Image Street Rods out of Santa Maria, CA in 2008 and it rolled out complete in 2010. The Smokn35 features a/c and heat, 4 wheel Wilwood discs brakes, 9″ posi rear end, House of Kolors paint, and leather interior done by Mike Wray of Cayucos ca. This car is definitely something my dad would have been stoked on. 08-DSC_5658 14-DSC_5715 13-DSC_5702 12-DSC_5689 11-DSC_5674 10-DSC_5670 09-DSC_5668

2014 Good Guys Del Mar and Boyd Coddington Memorial Award

Another great Del Mar Good Guys show. Definitely one of the best venues for a California car event.  A stone’s throw to the beach, beautiful weather, and as always some of the best cars in So Cal come out for the event. Gregg and I were excited once again to hand out our father’s memorial award. This year the award went to a 1940 Pontiac woody owned by a member of the DuPont family. The award was accepted on behalf of Mr. DuPont by the shop that built this beautiful woody, Hot Rods and Custom Stuff out of Escondido, CA. This car caught our eye right off the bat. It’s rare to see these Pontiac woodies and to see one built to this level was amazing. The work done by Randy Clark and his team is just amazing. Interesting enough that the winner of the first Boyd Coddington Memorial award, Andy Meeh, does all the paint work at Hot Rods and Custom Stuff. Andy and his family drove the woody through winners circle to accept the award.  I was happy this year to share the experience with my two daughters, Jenna and Stella. Once again a great time and we look forward to next year. 1-DSC_0557 1-DSC_0567 1-DSC_0573 1-DSC_0575 1-DSC_0579
