The Indoor Car Show Season Kicks off with the 14th Annual Salem Roadster Show & the new Salem Unique Street & Car Culture Show
Along with their normal Best of the Best invitees to the Salem Roadster Show, show owners/promoters Bob Symon and Greg Roach have a couple of new tricks up their sleeves. At the Salem Roadster Show they will be presenting the first Pacific NW Emerald Award. Five specially invited cars will compete for a unique two foot tall Eagle sculpture sitting atop a wooden base fabricated by Amazing Creations. The award, which is sponsored by Weston Kia/Buick/GMC, Precision Body & Paint, Roddin' & Racin Magazine, The Insurance Garage, Better Car Shows, The Salem Roadster Show & PDX CarCulture.com will be judged in a multi-facted manner. The sponsors of the award, each competitor, randomly selected exhibitors, randomly selected show attendees, and a professional judge, will each select their favorite to receive the trophy and a cash prize. Along with the winner receiving the amazing trophy, a perpetual trophy will record each years winner as well, and will be circulated among the award sponsors to display. Another new feature will be the inaugural edition of the Salem Unique Street & Car Culture Show. Looking to add a feature that would bring a younger and possibly different crowd, Bob & Greg reached out to Lonnie Thompson of Carolina Kustoms and PDX Car Culture owner/publisher and PRS Hall of Famer David Jothen, to bring their unique skills and expertise to the effort. Thompson immediately reached out to Stereo King to partner with him as the Presenting Sponsors, and Jothen began the marketing campaign. The show will look to include a variety of vehicle types not normally highlighted at a "roadster show." There will also be a unique group of vendors and activities. The great thing about this new addition is that you will be able to attend both great shows for one ticket price. To learn more about both shows, visit their website at www.salem-roadstershow.com, or the Salem Roadster Show and Salem Unique Street & Car Culture Facebook pages.
Super Chevrolet Parts. Co. Celebrates 40 Years!
The Super Chevrolet Parts Co. and owner Kibby Redman are celebrating 40 years in business in 2020! Starting out as a teen, selling used parts out of his parents garage, and then working in a local auto parts store (where i originally met him), he took a leap of faith in 1980 and opened his own store. During that time, Kibby has become know nationwide as one of the "go to" guys for Chevy muscle car parts, but more importantly his decades of knowledge. And if he doesn't have it it stock, he can get it for you.
Kibby's not only a tremendous resource for parts and knowledge, he is one of the most generous individuals in our hobby. He sponsors numerous events and awards annually, and it's always a pleasure to see him and one of his amazing rides at a car show. Something that unfortunately doesn't happen as much as we'd like, because he always working.
So before you automatically think about going on line, and thinking you will save money, please consider calling Kibby or stopping by his amazing shop. You'll get the right part the first time, the best advice money can buy, and you probably won't have to pay more. Congrats Kibby, we thank you for all you've done for our hobby over the past 40 years, and wish you continued success. You are a treasure in our hobby.
