We have started to revise and update the Hall of Fame beginning with the Little Deuce Coupe. New graphics and Album style.

Updated so far are the lil Deuce Coupe, Bill Niekamp roadster, and the Golden Sahara.

  • Ala Kart Ford Roadster Pickup that was the only roadster to win the title of America's most beautiful roadster twic in a row. One of the first AMT hot rod models to hit the country and has been brought back to its former glory by the Roy Brizio shop.
  • The Hirohata Mercury 1951 Chopped Mercury owned by Bob Hirohata and built by Barris bros. and Frank Sognoz. Very famous custom that really introduced the word Kustom to the hot rod language. It dropped from sight for over thirty years, but loongtime owner Jim McNeil restored it and reintroduced it to the custom world.
    Lil Deuce Coupe "Chili" Catallo's 1932 Ford Coupe was one of my early connection to the hot rod world, and one of the most recognized hot rods of all time. Featured on the cover of the Beach Boys album. Exhibited at Pebble Beach.I was involved in the beginning of this car and it was customized many times over the years. Pete's custom collision, Alexander Brothers, and the Barris Bros, all had a hand in the restyling of this car.Finaaly back in the hands of the Catallo family where it should be. One of the few hot rods to be invited to Pebble Beach..
    El Matador Bill Cushenbery's 1940 Ford Coupe, the El Matador, is one of the most recognized custom in the hot rod world. Owned by AMT model corp., Promotions inc. Carl Casper, and a variety of private owners. One of those owners was me, and it was a high point of my hot rod career. Burned in a garage fire and resurrected by HYarold Murphy, as chronicled in Custom Rodder magazine, it is a survivor in every sense of the word.
    Golden Sahara Original Barris Bros custom, Revised by Bob Metz, electronic showpiece that was very far advanced for the time period. Toured the country and exhibited in car dealers across the country. Wild body modifications by Bill Carr and Bill DeCarr, employees of George Bariis. Truly the most radical custom to achieve fame and is instantly recognized as the one of a kind top custom ever built.
