Dennis DeCamp's West Covina, California based 1932 Ford roadster was named the Goodguys/Classic Instruments 2007 Street Rod of the Year at the 10th PPG Nationals here in Columbus, Ohio. An emotional DeCamp thanked car builder Barry White and all the contributors who made his dream come true. The packed house here in Columbus gave a rowsing response to DeCamp, who drove the 3,000 mile journey from Southern California to Columbus, Ohio all by himself in pursuit of his dream.
Doug Hoppe's 1967 Fastback Mustang "Reactor", expertly hand crafted by the famed Ring Brothers of Spring Green, Wisconsin took home the Goodguys/Air Ride Technologies Street Machine of the Year award tonight here at the Goodguys 10th PPG Nationals.
The "Reactor" got the nod over the finest group of Street Machines ever assembled in one spot at one time. "There were 25 cars here that could have easily made the top five," said one industry insider. Hoppe's 427-cubic inch Roush powered Ford Mustang does good burnouts too! Friday afternoon after getting clearence from fairgrounds security, Hoppe and the Ring Bros took the car out to a remote section of the fairgrounds and put on a good old fashioned smoke show for some TV cameras.
