Recently, over 500 of the best hot rods, customer classics, muscle cars, and motorcycles competed against one another at the Grand National Roadster Show (formally known as the Oakland Roadster Show). In its 69th year, The Grand National Roadster Show is now the longest running indoor car show in the world! This custom car show was located at the Fairplex Fairgrounds in Pomona, CA for its 15th consecutive year.
All throughout the weekend, a team of judges focused on detail, quality, condition, safety, and originality to select a winner. These experienced experts in the car show scene are arranged into teams that focus and keep reliability within a point system for each vehicle class.
The main focus of each point is for quality and degree of difficulty in modification. The top achievable award is America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, with a cash prize of $10,000! Other notable awards are: Outstanding Overall, Outstanding Detail, Outstanding Color Design, Outstanding Engine, and Outstanding Interior.
The winner of this year’s 2018 America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award went to David Martin, owner of the 1931 Ford Roadster. Build credit for this beauty goes to Hot Rods and Hobbies out of Signal Hill, CA. You can easily see how this vehicle continues to set the bar for future winners to come.
