Legendary Hot Rod Designer Chip Foose to Meet Fans and Display Creations from Personal Collection During Pennzoil AutoFair at Charlotte Motor Speedway Featuring the 3M/Chip Foose Classic American Show
Groundbreaking West Coast hot rod designer Chip Foose will meet fans, demonstrate 3M automotive products and display the largest collection of his famous creations ever assembled outside of his shop, during the April 6-9 3M/Chip Foose Classic American Showcase at Charlotte Motor Speedway's AutoFair. Foose was already an accomplished designer when he started Foose Design in 1998, a year after becoming the youngest custom builder inducted into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame. Since then, the Southern California native has repeatedly won every prestigious award in his industry and introduced the custom car world to a mass audience by starring in the 2004-'08 and 2012-'15 television series Overhaulin'. The 3M/Chip Foose Classic American Showcase at AutoFair is expected to include one-of-a-kind creations like his 1935 Chevrolet Master Sedan, dubbed "Grandmaster;" "Imposter," a 1965 Chevrolet Impala, both past winners of the prestigious Ridler Memorial Award; "Hemisfear," a Hemi-powered minimalist roadster that inspired Plymouth's 1997 Prowler; Madam X, a reimagined 1939 Cadillac 60 Special 4 door; and "Pantera," Foose's uniquely true to its original style 1971 De Tomaso Pantera. Foose will sign autographs for fans alongside his custom creations and host 3M product demonstrations at the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division Demonstration & Education Mobile Operation (D.E.M.O.) display trailer on both Thursday and Friday of the show.
