Pleasanton, CA – Goodguys Founder and Chairman Gary Meadors along with his friend Sam Foose (Chip’s dad) will join together to select the Builder’s Choice awards at the Goodguys 27t West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster August 23-25 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds. The special occasion reunites these two industry legends to hand pick the top ten cars at the event. Not an easy task at an event that draws the nation’s finest ’72 & earlier rods, customs, classics and muscle cars!
Meadors and Foose’s friendship dates back to the 1970s when they met at what else – a rod run! In the 80s, Meadors had both Sam and Chip do a complete rebuild of his ’32 Ford tudor which has served as the Goodguys logo car since Goodguys incorporated in 1987. In the early 90s, Sam and Chip teamed up yet again to design a ’33 Ford roadster for Gary’s wife Marilyn Meadors. They are both members of the Grand National Roadster Show Hall of Fame.
Meadors, who usually just gets to make one award pick per event (the Goodguys Pick), is excited for the opportunity. “Sam is hands down one of the finest metal men and visionaries in contemporary hot rod & custom design. His eye and his old world craftsmanship is second to none. Chip Foose will tell you the same thing. If I can hold up my end of the bargain, I think together we can pick some bitchin cars at the West Coast Nationals.”
To have your car considered for a West Coast Nationals Builder’s Choice selection, you must park in the Builder’s Choice parking area (out on the west grass lot under the shade trees adjacent to the swap meet) Saturday 8/24 from 7am-Noon. Only ten cars will be selected!
