During this year’s SEMA show November 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Goodguys will be present the all-new Goodguys GOLD awards! These brand new, exclusive awards will be presented to just 5 lucky winners. All cars on display at SEMA which have a Goodguys decal on their windshield will be eligible for a Goodguys GOLD award. Indoor display cars, outdoor display cars as well all featured exhibit vehicles, regardless of year, make or model will be eligible for a Goodguys GOLD award provided they’re proudly displaying a Goodguys windshield decal.
All five Goodguys GOLD winners will receive a special billet anodized GOLD bar trophy as well as an invitation to the Goodguys 16th Southwest Nationals November 15-17 at Westworld in Scottsdale, Arizona to park in a special area reserved for GOLD winners. The winners will also be photographed for inclusion in the Goodguys Goodtimes Gazette magazine.
The winners will be announced at the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association booth on Hot Rod Alley (booth #22375) Wednesday, November 6th at 2pm. All exhibitors, fans and enthusiasts are welcome and encouraged to attend the winner’s announcement ceremony!
The new awards are the first of their kind for Goodguys at SEMA. “The SEMA show has long been an industry showplace for freshly built hot rods, customs and muscle cars as well as late models to make their debut,” said Goodguys President Marc Meadors. “We wanted to do something exclusive and special at the SEMA show in recognition of today’s top builders. SEMA has become one of the top car shows in the world and it only makes sense for Goodguys to honor what we feel are the top 5 cars on display.”
If you’re debuting or showing a car at SEMA this year and do not currently have a Goodguys decal on your car, you can stop by the Goodguys booth for a complimentary one beginning Tuesday morning Nov 5th. Goodguys officials will also be walking the show floor on set-up day, Monday, November 4th passing out decals to display cars.
Other Goodguys related SEMA activities include the FREE AutoCross poster giveaway and autograph signing with all 10 Goodguys PRO drivers Wednesday 11/6 @ 10am. The drivers signing the posters at our booth include Rob McGregor, Mary Pozzi, Bret Voelkel, Mike Maier, Brian Finch, Phil Gerber, Cheryl Herrick, Kyle & Stacy Tucker and Roger Burman.
Topping off the busy Wednesday, Goodguys will announce the annual “Trendsetter” award at the annual HRIA Banquet. Since 1998, The Goodguys Trendsetter award has been presented annually here at the SEMA Show to rising talents in the realm of rod, custom and street machine craftsmanship.
Hope to see you at SEMA!
