ENEOS x Pit+Paddock SEMA Show Car Contest 2023 Finalists
The ENEOS x Pit+Paddock SEMA Show Car Contest 2023 is going full speed ahead, and five finalists have been selected for public voting. With a great variety of car building styles, will the winning project be something old school or with great attention to detail, crazy extreme or a clean street build? You have the power to decide!
Here are your finalists:
2002 Honda S2000
Top Mods: custom titanium V-mount turbo, Voltex/Amuse aero kit, CPC carbon intake manifold, Endless brakes
Why We Like It: Jin Nguyen has been wrenching since he was 13. This S2000 demonstrates the nitty-gritty work involved in executing an authentic, high-quality caliber project car.
1977 Datsun 280Z
Top Mods: 790whp 1JZ-GTE engine swap, 10-point NHRA-spec roll cage, Panasport G7 C5C wheels
Why We Like It: Diego Garibay modified a Mitsubishi Starion before moving on to this immaculate 280Z — a stripped-down, nut-and-bolt restoration that packs plenty of power.
2020 Toyota GR Supra
Top Mods: Varis Supreme90 widebody, Aston Martin Iridescent Emerald paint, KLM Race turbo kit, APG gold anodized big brakes
Why We Like It: Sean Bradford spent a large portion of his life as a photographer. This GR Supra is his first major project, which shows that you don’t need an extensive spec list to make a big impact.
2003 Acura RSX
Top Mods: custom metal widebody, FIA Clubman roll cage, Prodrive WRC-inspired roof, Moton suspension, NASCAR Brembo brakes
Why We Like It: Huy Hoang’s 20-year journey with this RSX is perhaps the finest DC5 build in the world with insane attention to detail.
2003 Nissan 350Z
Top Mods: dual boosted Honda K24 engines, rebuilt EP3 5-speed transmissions, full tube chassis, handmade fenders
Why We Like It: After an accident that left Ashley Robinson’s Z crushed on its roof, the owner embarked on the unthinkable idea of creating a dual-engine-powered toy that showcases his imagination and craftsmanship.
