14th Annual Salem Roadster Show & New Salem Unique Street & Car Culture Show were truly the "Best of the Best"
For the second year in a row, the Salem Roadster Show saw record crowds, and along with attendees being treated to the Best of the Best, they also got a second show to attend, and the opportunity to see 5 amazing and diverse vehicles compete for the inaugural Pacific NW Emerald Award.
Matt Ward of Grants Pass took home the amazing eagle sculpture trophy and a check for $1500, with his candy apple red 1964 Chevy C10 pickup. The multi-faceted voting structure of the award came down to one point between the top two competitors, with only Wards vehicle being identified as the awards winner. Sponsors of the award: Weston KIA/Buick/GMC, Precision Body & Paint, Roddin & Racin Magazine, Better Car Shows, The Insurance Garage, PDX CarCulture, The Salem Roadster Show, Amazing Creations, along with five randomly selected exhibitors, five randomly selected attendee to the show, and a professional car show judge were all given ballots to rank the five contenders from 1 to 5. Those scores were then tallied, and the lowest point total took home the award. When the award was presented, Ward shared how the build was in memory of his Son Bobby who had passed away. Even the show promoters Bob Symon and Greg Roach did not know the winner until the envelope was handed to them to open. It was a touching moment, and the other four contenders all embraced Matt’s win.
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.
