They call Denver the Mile-High City, but after the recent Super Chevy Show at Bandimere Speedway in nearby Morrison, Colorado, we were eight miles high.

The annual pilgrimage to this event is always worth the effort. Many more did this year than last, as the show field was packed with Chevys of every description. Street machines, trucks, fifth gens—you name it. That made picking five for the Editor's Choice Show Car Awards was that much more daunting.

Stock and modified, small, medium and large, we found five interesting vehicles that answered our old question, "Which would you drive home if you had the chance?" Yes, we could have picked at least a dozen more, but we only had five plaques.

Our selections included a '62 Bel Air custom with a big block, a stock L78 '68 Nova, a '55 210, a tastefully modified '71 Chevelle and a V8 Vega so impeccably detailed you'd have thought it was a factory-built car.
