The Kindig-It team have long supported the Roadster Show over the years. In fact, they first participated in Idaho’s biggest motorsport’s event back in 2006. Over the years, they’ve brought special builds like the “Maybelline” 1958 Lincoln Continental, 1964 Cadillac Coupe Deville for Olympic Gold medalist Apollo Ono; the 1934 Dodge Brothers sedan; the 1967 Boss Mustang; the 1947 Cadillac convertible; and the “Copper Caddy” 1960 Cadillac, just to mention but a few.

We can’t wait to see what the Kindig-It Design empire selects to display for our 50th anniversary show.

As Idaho’s premiere motorsport’s experience, the event will fill all three buildings at the Expo Idaho indoor facility.

Every entry that participates in the show wins an award. The top prize of the Roadster Show is known coast-to-coast as the Goldmark. The Goldmark will go to the one entry deemed “Best of the Best’. The Goldmark wins a cash prize, along with an embroidered jacket and special award statue. The “Essence of Cool”, Trendsetter, Wild One, Fire Rod, Mighty Fine, Tompkins Cup, Jack’s Pick, KRS Pick and more will also be handed out during the award ceremonies.

A tradition at the Roadster Show every March, the New family will also reveal an honoree for the Master-Builder award, too. This special recognition plaque is presented to a person who has helped to positively influence, shape and make the Roadster Show a better event year-over-year.
