We saw amazing vehicles, built with love, and raced and shared with true enthusiasm. It was the celebration of the love of race and performance we were hoping for.  We look forward to continuing the celebration in the coming months with other virtual events, so stay tuned.

And now, with no further delay, we’d like to extend a huge and hearty congratulations to Best of Show winner Glenn Sinon and his 1972 Ford Maverick, which was the overwhelming favorite in user voting.  That being said, all four contenders were fantastic!  You can see them here: Best in Class winners/Best in Show contenders.

From Glenn’s description of the Maverick, “This car is 90% owner built in backyard garage. I spent roughly 2000 hours over 7 years. Many custom modifications made to body, interior and engine compartment. Full custom coil over front suspension, 13” disc brakes at all four corners. Owner built engine (first one) that dyno’d at 340hp. Custom gauge bezel, console, dash and seating. Trunk upholstered to match.

“Car is painted a custom mix of PPG EHP waterbase and D8152 glamour clear. Subtle stripes down low, and up hood that continues across the cowl and onto the dash for a unique touch. Body has a custom front spoiler and valance with driving lights, shaved drip rails with an added reveal that wraps quarter glass, carbon fiber hood and trunk, swapped out rear tail pan with one for a 68 Shelby with sequential taillights. Custom rear valance as well. 17″ front and 18” rear Billet Specialties Vintec Dish rims and BFG tires.

“The car was built to be a driver, and drive it I do. After being on the road for a year I checked one off the bucket list by showing the car in the Detroit Autorama. I was going with the attitude that even last place was still cool, hey, its the Detroit Autorama! But in the end I received not only a First in class, but also 1 of only 4 Outstanding Paint awards out of the roughly 850 cars entered. I could go on and on about this car, my hands have touched every single nut, bolt, clip and wire in this car. I only farmed out the exhaust, transmission and the upholstery. Although you could say I was a part of that as he and I did all the fabrication while he did all the sewing.”

We think she’s gorgeous, too, Glen!

  1. Fords have the distributor in the FRONT of the engine and I see plug wires going to the back the engine like they do with the small block Chevy. Looks like you modified so Ford valve covers and stuck’um on a Chevy which canceled out the entire project.

    • You would be 100% incorrect. That is a Ford engine but it is using a distributor less ignition. Have you not heard of them? The coil packs are painted body color and mounted on the firewall, look close and you will see the plug wires going from the coil packs to the spark plugs.

      So entire project not canceled out, thank you very much.

  2. You guys in the comments are missing one important thing! It is not your car! This Gentleman build his car his way…. and did a fantastic job. My biggest joy with the car community is that there are guys who love every different kind of car! Your love of only things built your way are counterproductive in keeping our sport alive!
