Charley Hutton 2021 Del Mar Nationals Builders Choice

2021 Del Mar Nationals Builders Choice Top 10 by Charley Hutton

Charley Hutton might be the best-known name in custom automotive painting today, with his Idaho-based Color Studio being the go-to destination for some of the most elite, award-winning hot rod and custom car builds. Charley built his reputation working for luminaries like Boyd Coddington and Chip Foose and continues to demonstrate exceptional style and quality with each vehicle that emerges from his shop. Goodguys was happy to have Hutton presenting the Builder’s Choice Top 10 again in Del Mar, where there was an incredible group of vehicles from which to choose. Here are the ten that rose to the top.
