To hotrodders, the Ridler Award is the equivalent to the Lombardi Trophy in football or the Stanley Cup in hockey.

Before the winner is crowned, the competition is reduced to a “Great 8” field of finalists. These eight vehicles represent the creme de la creme of the hot rod universe.

So, when the Atlanta Motororama announced that five of those “Great 8” finalists would be attending the event, it got our attention.

The five vehicles are listed below, and you can learn more about the Ridler Award here.
