The SEMA Show’s annual Battle of the Builders competition is a pretty big deal, attracting an incredible mix of vintage hot rods, exotic imports, wild customs, and classic haulers.

And to be named a finalist means that, in the eyes of the automotive aftermarket industry, you’re among the best custom vehicle builders on the planet.

So we couldn’t wait to see who made the cut to 12 finalists this year. The judging is in four categories, with three finalists apiece. That number will go down to four finalists, one in each category, soon. And then an Ultimate Winner will be crowned when the 2021 SEMA show closes. We’ll update this post when that happens.

Scroll down to see the individual cars, watch the video walkthrough at the bottom of the story, and then tell us who you think should win in the comments section.
