Great 8 from Above – Ridler Award 2013 – Contenders
2013 Detroit Autorama – Ridler Award Contenders
MyRideisMe.com’s show sponsor: Auto Meter Gauges
If you’re 6’4″ you don’t need a ladder… might as well use the height for some good and give another look at the “Great 8” cars contending for the coveted Ridler Award. After another day at the show, the winner’s unknown and among friends, there’s no clear favorite. (lots of bias tho!)
Ridler Award Contender – 1934 Ford Sedan
Ridler Award Contender – 1965 Corvette
After talking to the good people at Greening Auto Company, especially Jesse Greening, the chief builder, we’re learning more and gaining more respect for this gorgeous Corvette.
Ridler Award Contender – 1940 Ford
This is the judges doing their thing. They go over every part of the car, including the build books to learn what makes one car more amazing than the next. Owners and builders help them to not miss a thing. I heard they get a chance to go back later, after hours, to have one last look before they vote.
Ridler Award Contender – 1956 Buick
Ridler Award Contender – 1957 Chevy Pickup
Ridler Award Contender – 1972 Chevy Pickup
Ridler Award Contender – 1934 Ford Coupe or Roadster?
We shot this fully custom 1934 Ford yesterday with it’s hard top on. I like it better without the top myself, how about you? So that makes it a roadster, right?
Ridler Award Contender – 1935 Ford Phaeton
Still undecided about your favorite?
