Every year the Grand National Roadster Show is held at Pomona, CA. The best spotlight of the show is “America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR)” which is held at Building 4.
Many Roadster which spent several hundreds of thousands of dollars, registered every year to win this Award.
This year, 10 Roadsters were registered for AMBR.
One the Roadster was 32 Ford “K’s Roadster” which won the Best of Show at last year’s Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2019.
35 years have past when Shun Kasai of Deuce Factory Japan first started as Street Rodder.
It is definitely the one that is full of his knowledge and experience for 35 years.
The competitive finish of the car was like “Japanese Builder has finally come this far.”
It has a more massive image looking at in Pomona than Yokohama and, is it only myself that felt it was natural to be there?
It is a Roadster that matches the Blue Sky of Southern California.
Unfortunately, it couldn’t win the AMBR Award but, it was a wonderful thing that Roadster made in Japan imposingly participated in AMBR and, attracted the attention of many people.
If it has past its just 35 years but, I felt that I saw the results of blood, sweat, and tears that is build-up for a long time.

2020 AMBR に輝いたのはこのRoadsterです。

2020 AMBR winner is this Roadster.
