Few Super Chevy Shows have the kind of turnout we experience in Memphis. Tens of thousands of spectators, hundreds of show cars, as many race cars as will fit in the pits, and some 750 swap meet vendors. It is truly Bow Tie overload. Fans come from as far away as Iowa and Kansas to be a part of this action. For the car show, we are tasked with picking our five Editor's Choice award winners. It could be anything from a stock Camaro to a modified truck, or anything in between. Whatever moved us. Which five would we like to drive home?At Memphis International, the sights in the show field were truly overwhelming. We could easily pick 20 favorites. Narrowing it down to five was quite a task. We finally narrowed it down to a group we'd be proud to call our own. Mick Price's '62 409/409 Biscayne was one for the ages with its red-on-red color scheme and formal post roof. We were taken in by Chuck Leonard's '56 Nomad, which sported a beautiful black and red two-tone paint scheme and a detailed 6.0-liter LS under the hood. Kenny Park's restored '72 Heavy Chevy Chevelle was one Bow Tie you don't see very often, so he got an award. Geoff Cowan brought his '69 Pro Street Camaro all the way from Iowa. Recently completed, it had 572 Rat power backed by a Tremec 6-speed. Finally, there was Carl Walling's Jewel Blue '61 Corvette. We were smitten by its Day Two mods, including a Hurst T-handle shifter.
