2022 Pinkees Rod Shop Builders Choice

2021 Colorado Nationals Builders Choice Top 10 by Pinkee’s Rod Shop

2022 Pinkees Rod Shop Builders ChoiceEric Peratt has stuffed a lot of history into his 25-plus-year span of building custom vehicles professionally at Pinkee’s Rod Shop. He captured the coveted Ridler Award at the Detroit Autorama in 1998 with one of his first builds, and has gone on to win the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster award, Goodguys Trendsetter honor, and multiple Goodguys Top 12 awards with the shop’s ground-breaking builds.

Peratt’s scope extends beyond cars, too, as evidenced by the Mash Lab microbrewery he opened a few years ago adjacent to the Pinkee’s shop. You could say that Peratt seeks to find balance and good taste in all he pursues, and that extends to his Builder’s Choice Top 10 selections, which all exhibited those qualities.
