Mothers® Polishes•Waxes•Cleaners, known the world over for its premium-quality car care products, will once again bestow the company’s standard of excellence with its annual Shine Award, a Best-of-Show trophy to be presented at the automotive Specialty Equipment Market Association Show 2002 in Las Vegas. With so many car-builders vying for this prestigious “Academy Award” of the automotive world, the question on everyone s minds is: “Who will win this year?”

In its inaugural year, the 2001 Shine Award went to the “NewMad,” a spectacular street rod designed by Chris Ito, built by Steve Frisbie, and owned by Dave Hall. This pinnacle of the car-builder’s craft melded the classic features of a 1955 Nomad with truly inspired vision, artistry, design, detail and craftsmanship.

“Planning last year’s Shine Award was a monumental task,” adds Ken Holland, Marketing Director for Mothers®. We wanted to make sure that it was special – an award that truly defined quality and craftsmanship in the art of custom car design. We even televised the Shine Award ceremony on ESPN2 as part of the Mothers® Car Show.

The winner was selected by panel of three independent judges, all respected experts from the automotive aftermarket industry. They walked nearly 12 miles of aisles crisscrossing 1.1 million square feet of exhibit space at the SEMA Show 2001 to carefully evaluate nearly 350 entries, more than one-third of the total 900 vehicles on display. Judging criteria includes overall appearance, attention to detail, integration of custom and stock elements, paint finish, vision and execution of the initial concept.

“The presentation of the Shine Award from the Primedia Publishing booth at the SEMA Show is of vital importance,” adds Holland. “Primedia produces many of today s respected automotive enthusiast magazines. Their support of our award takes the event to a much higher level. It is both a confirmation of Mothers® grassroots, car enthusiast heritage, as well as an endorsement of the Shine Award as a prestigious automotive industry event.”

Adding to the challenge and significance of the award, Mothers® expects far more cars and trucks to be evaluated to win the 2002 Shine. The winner will be announced at the SEMA Show, and the deserving vehicle featured on the Mothers® web site (

The Shine, artfully crafted in shape of a detailer’s towel swirling upward like a curling flame, is 20 pounds of magnificent hand-forged bronze sculpted by renowned automotive artist Steve Posson.
