2013 Good Guys Del Mar

Another year and another great car show at Del Mar Fairgrounds put on by the Good Guys . The weather was beautiful as usual and there were tons of people at the show. We had all our new wheels on display and got some really good response on the new designs. Once again Gregg and I had the task of picking the recipient of the Boyd Coddington Memorial Award. This years winner was Joe Kugel with his sleek and tastefully done 32 Roadster. We loved the paint and the dark Ferarri-esque interior on this car. The F-22 wheels on the Kugel Suspension just make this little roadster sit right. Congrats Joe on a well done roadster that we’re sure our dad would have loved too.
Overall it was a good show. True story. We had reports earlier in the week that some of our competitors were a little nervous about us showing up with our new product and made calls to Good Guys to try and stop us from coming. How silly is that? I guess that’s what happens when everyone else is doing the same ol boring stuff and we’re out there trying to push new designs and new finishes.
We’d like to thank the Good Guys organization for allowing us to pay tribute to our father and continue his legacy. Good Guys is one of the greatest car show organizations on this planet and their shows always deliver. We’ll see you again next year.

2012 Good Guys Del Mar Boyd Coddington Memorial Award

This is the 4th year my brother Gregg and I have given out the Boyd Coddington Memorial Award at the Good Guys Del Mar show. As always Del Mar doesn’t disappoint. The weather was a little chilly but not enough to scare anyone away. Lots of great cars to choose from and we’re glad Good Guys continues to support this award in memory of our father. For the award we decided to build a billet award design that our father used for some of the Pro’s Pick awards he used to give out. Anodized gold with a machine finish. We’re really happy with the way it turned out. It’s always a challenge to pick just one car at these shows. There were so many worthy rides but this year we decided that Ryan Reed’s 1937 Ford Coupe was hands down one of the coolest cars at the show. Ryan really put the attention to detail into this one. Killer stance, flawless paint and interior. Nothing dated or trendy about this car at all. Ryan built this all himself at his shop in Corona, CA. Definitely something our dad would have thought was super cool.

We look forward to coming back next year to pick another ride that is worthy of getting the Boyd Coddington Memorial Award. Many thanks to the Good Guys for their support.
