2013 marked the 61st Detroit Autorama Annual custom car show. The Hot rodding and custom car community consider the “Ridler” award which is presented at this show to be one of the most prestigious. With this year being the 50th anniversary of the award the entrants were celebrating a historical moment. 

The Ridler award was won by Ron Cizek’ for his 1940 Ford Coupe dubbed "checkered past". In the hand built sport section a Superformance MKIII belonging to new Owner John Walters took home 1st Place. This Superformance MKIII SP2142 was displayed in the Roush booth and is powered by a Roush 402R engine with custom Roush Valve Covers and Air Cleaner with Billet wire looms. 

Close by, an older but immaculately kept Superformance SPO468 was on display as a Feature Vehicle by the Owner Chuck Grech. This Stunning red beauty was awarded a 3rd place in the Hand Built Sport section. Well done to both owners and thank you for your representation.
