Congratulations to Texan Buddy Jordan for earning the coveted Goldmark award at the 46th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts Boise Roadster Show. Presented by Les Schwab Tires, the show’s top prize earned the Ridler winner a cool $2,000, along with the unique Eagle statue and award jacket.

The “Renaissance” 1933 One-Off Roadster was the winner of both Best Rod and Outstanding Display, too. The award was accepted by builder Steve Frisbie and his crew (pictured), owner of Steve’s Auto Restoration.

The 37th Master-Builder award was presented to long-time car builder Kenny Welch from Boise. Operating KRS (Kenny’s Rod Shop), the Boise builder was very gracious and appreciative of the special award and embroidered jacket.
