Steele Rubber Products Master Builder Award

Since 2012, Steele Rubber Products has sponsored the Master Builder Award at the World of Wheels / AutoRama / Cavalcade of Customs show car series. During the 2018-2019 season AutoRama traveled to 14 different locations across 12 states and 2 countries choosing a winner at each stop.

The Master Builder Award is given to one outstanding vehicle built with little or no professional help. The winners are true car guys and this is their hobby. They spend years working on these vehicles in their garage on nights and weekends and that’s exactly how Steele Rubber Products was founded; by a car guy who was working on his car and couldn’t find parts for it, so he made his own.

We are proud to sponsor this award to reward those who support the industry and recognize their craftsmanship and contribution to the hobby.

Congratulations to all of this years Master Builder Award winners!
