2020 Goodguys America's Most Beautiful

Top 5 Decided for Goodguys 2020 BASF America’s Most Beautiful!

Goodguys used an online entry and evaluation process to determine four of its “Of The Year” awards in 2020. Last week we announced the Top 5 for Custom of the Year, Hot Rod of the Year, and Street Rod d’Elegance – those three overall award winners were announced earlier today on the Fuel Curve homepage.

Today we’re announcing the Top 5 finalists for the newly redesigned BASF America’s Most Beautiful award. Goodguys’ America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod title is now just America’s Most Beautiful, which opened the doors to all Street Rods, Hot Rods, Trucks, Street Machines, Customs, Custom Rods and Muscle Cars through 1987 vintage. It is now simply a beauty contest.

After careful consideration, we’re honored to showcase the Top 5 finalists for 2020! The most beautiful entry will be announced next Friday, October 23rd as the overall winner of Goodguys’ 2020 BASF America’s Most Beautiful award!

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.
