The winning car will be chosen by a panel of judges consisting of both automotive media and last year’s contest winners, Todd Foust (1965 Ford Mustang) and Dennis Rostenbach (1970 Plymouth Road Runner). Royal Purple will announce the winning car on September 6 on the Royal Purple Inc. Facebook fan page.
