HALO CHEVY COUPE SWEEPS GOLDMARK TITLE AT ROADSTER SHOW

Jerry Kjensrud from Sherwood, Ore., collected sweepstakes honors with his 1939 Chevrolet coupe called “Halo” during the 41st edition of the O’Reilly Auto Parts Boise Roadster Show, which culminated on Sunday evening at Expo Idaho. Presented by Les Schwab, the four-day Summit ISCA Championship event attracted an outstanding field of exhibitors from eight states.

A six-year undertaking, the remarkable coupe of Kjensrud scored the event’s top prize known as the Goldmark award, in addition to the overall Best Rod title. In the weeks leading up to the Boise tour stop, Kjensrud also collected Best Rod titles at shows in Pomona and Sacramento, Calif.

Tim Wallace from Meridian was selected for the 32nd Master-Builder honoree. Wallace has been participating at the Roadster Show for better than three decades. At this year’s show, Wallace unveiled a Pro Modified 1955 Chevy race car, which won the Best Comp title.

For an amazing five consecutive years, the No Limit Classic club won the Best Club Display award. The Willys club and Treasure Valley Mustang & Ford club took second and third, respectively.
