2020 Southwest Nationals Builders Choice Top 10 from Hot Rods by Dean

Dean Livermore’s shop, Hot Rods by Dean, has been consistently turning out top-notch rides in the Phoenix area for decades.

Dean likes a wide range of rides – from early hot rods to ’70s muscle – and as you’ll see from his picks, he greatly values clean design and execution and tasteful style. Let’s see what he picked to wrap up the 2020 season!
