Grand National Roadster Show at the Fairplex

Roger Rohrdanz March 05, 2023 Events


A record 15 roadsters were competing for the title

The 69th Annual O’Reilly Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS) was presented at the Fairplex in Pomona California. The ultimate classic car show included the most prestigious builders, fabricators, artists, and restoration specialists to show off their finest examples of classic Americana on wheels. The show encompassed all genres of the classic car hobby, including customs, restorations, muscle cars, trucks, hot rods, motorcycles and street machines.

The most coveted award at the GNRS is the America’s Most Beautiful Roadster title. A record 15 roadsters were competing for the title. Late Sunday night this incredible award was presented to Dave Martin’s 1931 Ford built at Hot Rods & Hobbies in Signal Hill, California. The ’31 Ford Roadster is on a ’32 frame with a 500hp Ed Pink small-block and fuel injected all aluminum Brodix heads. The trans is a Richmond 5 speed.

Thanks for the Show!!
