Goodguys Fuel Curve Top 10 of 2020 – #7 Custom, Kustom, and Custom Rod Retrospective
Editor’s Note: No matter how you look at it, 2020 was a year that nobody expected, nor wished for. Event postponements, cancellations, social distancing, and more had old car enthusiasts out of sorts. Our scene revolves around gathering at events and showing off with others. We’re a community, even if don’t live near each other.
Thankfully, hot rodding is all about overcoming obstacles and making things better. Goodguys and Fuel Curve worked hard in 2020 to cover the altered landscape of the vintage car and truck scene, bringing you fresh and creative content every week – over 400 stories in total. We’re using the last few days of the year to revisit the Top 10 stories of the year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back as we start to prepare for better times in 2021.
#7 – Three Decades of Goodguys Custom, Kustom, and Custom Rod of the Year
We’ve ran a few retrospectives on Goodguys Top 12 award winners here on Fuel Curve (Truck Early | Truck Late | Hot Rod), but this Custom, Kustom, and Custom Rod look back from 1993-2018 published in late June gained a lot of traction in 2020.
Like any such retrospective, it’s interesting to see the various trends that have emerged through the years, not to mention the evolution in craftsmanship. Some of these award winners have probably stood the test of time a little better than others, but all of them showcase the creativity and style inherent in the custom corner of our hobby.
