The “Renaissance Roadster" 1933 Ford, owned by Buddy Jordan and Steve Frisbie and painstakingly hand-built at Frisbie's shop, Steve’s Auto Restoration in Portland, Ore., topped all challengers to win the 2017 Ridler Award. Named after the late Don Ridler, the coveted award, eligible only to cars shown for the first time, is presented annually at the Detroit Autorama at Cobo Hall in downtown Detroit and goes to the vehicle that best exemplifies creativity, engineering and quality workmanship. This handmade masterpiece ranks with the best of the best in the 50-plus year history of the event, which dates back to 1964, when drag racer Al Bergler won the first for his immaculate "Aggravation" AA/C dragster.
