The Goodguys Builder’s Choice awards program returns in 2012 with new energy and a few new shops making selections! A Goodguys Builder’s Choice award is one of the highest honors your car can receive at a Goodguys National event and recognizes the nation’s finest rods, customs, trucks and muscle cars!
Each 2012 Goodguys national event will feature a Builder’s Choice parking area, to be staged on Saturday from 7am to noon. To be eligible for a Builder’s Choice award you must park in the Builder’s Choice parking area.
At 10 events this year, the Builder’s Choice awards will be selected by the nation’s top builders, including a few new players (The Roadster Shop/Ring Brothers in Columbus and Kenny Davis in Texas).
