2021 West Coast Nationals Builders Choice Top 10 by Dominator Street Rods

Leonard Lopez of Dominator Street Rods is a longtime friend of Goodguys and has been a fixture at the West Coast Nationals for years. We know we can rely on him to seek out Builder’s Choice Top 10 selections that have outstanding style, great build quality, and a wealth of details – just like the rides that come out of his shop.

As we’ve come to expect from Leonard, this year’s lineup had plenty of variety – from traditional-style early rods, to ’50s cruisers and refined ’60s muscle machines and trucks. They shared some themes, though, like clean lines, precise execution, and big power. Let’s take a look!
