Best of 2020 – Customs and Cruisers

Goodguys founder Gary Meadors was adamant in including Customs in the Goodguys Rod and Custom Association name when he started the organization back in 1987. For decades Customs have played a vital role in our industry. Some of the most recognizable builds are Customs – Hirohata Merc, Jade Idol, and CadZZilla just to name a few. And where would the industry be without the Custom pioneers that paved the way like Barris, Winfield, Bailon, Roth and the likes?



We gathered some of our favorite Customs we saw in 2020 and added in some cool 50s and 60s Cruisers to bring you today’s Best Of 2020 gallery. Enjoy!

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
