Goodguys has created an annual tradition and generated considerable industry buzz by bestowing the coveted Goodguys Gold Awards on five top builds at the SEMA Show each year. With so many incredible builders debuting new creations at the SEMA Show, the Goodguys team felt it made sense to recognize the best of the best – the gold standard, if you will. Car and truck builders and owners can contend for a Gold Award by simply displaying a Goodguys Gold Award decal and placard on their vehicle. Goodguys representatives evaluate the entries and select the top five vehicles on display.
