PostSubject: 2020 AACA Zenith Award results   It's a Buick, but it's not something you see very often. Caballero!  - Page 7 Icon_minitimeMon Aug 24, 2020 10:50 pm

The 2020 AACA Grand National was moved from Allentown, PA to Gettysburg, PA and was held on August 21-22.
The Zenith Award judging took place on Friday and the Grand National Judging on Saturday.

From the AACA website:
Conceived by the Antique Automobile Club of America’s former national club President Tom Cox and assisted by CEO Steve Moskowitz, the whole point of creating the Zenith Award was to bring greater attention to the collector-car hobby.According to Moskowitz:
We inaugurated a new award designed to pick the best-of-the-best cars in a similar fashion as the street-rod hobby does with the Ridler Award. Trying to find one car out of thousands as a winner is a very tough job, but we felt it important for our hobby to get a car recognized universally in this fashion."
In order to get nominated, each year two vehicles (cars or trucks) are selected from each AACA national show by the national awards judging team. Once the 16 vehicles are selected, they are then judged at the Grand National meet by a team of AACA Senior Master Judges along with three guest judges.

There were 10 Zenith finalists, including our 1958 Buick Caballero.

I was certain that the Auburn and the Pierce Arrow would take the top 2 awards.

When they got down to only 3 awards left, my friend, Larry, asked if my heart was pounding yet.
I was still sure that my car wouldn't be the runner-up or overall winner.

Imagine my surprise when the last "Finalist" trophy went to a different car, leaving only my 1958 Caballero and the 1933 Auburn.

When Steve Moskowitz then began to describe the runner-up, it was clear that he was talking about the Auburn....

I could hardly talk when I was called forward to get the winner's trophy!

It was an amazing experience and an intense day, but all worth it!!

That was some tough competition, making it all the more meaningful to come out on top. Well done, and congratulations.

Wow!   Congrats Joe!   I hope to one day see this masterpiece in person as I followed this thread since you found it in the desert.

Nice to see that your incredible attention to every detail was recognized.
