Gene Winfield, a car designer and builder for over 50 years, appeared at the 2015 PPG Syracuse Nationals, in Syracuse, N.Y., during July to select a winner of the fifth annual Winfield Award, recognizing the car that he believes best represents the world of auto customization. Months prior to the start of the annual show at the New York State Fairgrounds, Winfield painstakingly selected 6 cars from a field of dozens, for final Select Six.

Gene is a master of his craft, and world famous for his custom cars and hot rods. A recipient of the 2001 NHRA Lifetime Achievement Award, he has over 60 years experience in custom hot rod fabrication, land speed, and oval track racing. Winfield is one of the key players who started the customizing craze that first swept through California and then throughout the nation in the '50s and '60s. Gene's cars have appeared in more than 25 motion pictures.



Winfield's best known custom car, the "Jade Idol," started as a '56 Mercury. The "Jade Idol" positioned Winfield at the leading edge of auto exotica. This car took two years to build and received top sweepstakes awards at national car shows for the next several years.

Entrants must have at least one radical modification. (e.g. chopped, sectioned, and/or channeled) Entries must be 1937 and newer.
