Street Elite Showcase
American Legend Street Elite Showcase
American Legend Street Elite Showcase is for modified vehicles that exhibit an elite-level of detail and finish, while being specifically designed and built to be registered and street driven. This allows such vehicles to remain competitive, while continuing to be used regularly.
Street Elite Showcase also rewards vehicles that utilise current styling trends, encourage future trends, while growing the whole custom automotive industry.
Judges will be looking for a high-level of finish in the engine bay, body, paint and interior. Undercarriage judging will reward vehicles that feature well-executed, legal-style engineering and innovative coatings that will enhance longevity during typical use.
STREET ELITE SHOWCASE CLASSES
• Hot Rod (pre 1948)
• Street Machine/Muscle Car (post 1948)
• Tuner (Japanese and Euro)
• Custom Cruiser (Pre 1970s vehicles built for cruising that feature heavy body customisation)
STREET ELITE SHOWCASE PINNACLE AWARDS
The Pinnacle Award is the top accolade for each of the four Street Elite Showcase classes - Hot Rod, Street Machine, Tuner and Custom Cruiser. Winners of each Pinnacle class will receive a masterpiece billet trophy and an additional monetary component.

STREET ELITE SHOWCASE ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA
• Must have current registration, blue slip, or engineer’s report (for a new vehicle). • A maximum 150mm (6-inch) bonnet protrusion. This incorporates, but not limited to, any part of the engine, plus bonnet scoops, bonnet bulges and shaker-style air cleaners. • Any moving part protruding through the bonnet must be covered by a guard – or shrouded in a way deemed safe by the organiser. • Maximum, nominal rim width of 12-inches (305mm). • Must not have been previously entered in Meguiar’s Superstars – unless the organiser deems the vehicle has been sufficiently altered or modified. • Engine must start and run. Vehicle must be shown to start and run upon entry into the show pavilion. • Vehicles may be sponsored. However the placement of commercial signage promoting brands or products the organiser deems to be competing brands or products is restricted. Such signage must be kept to a maximum 150mm x 150mm, in no more than two positions on the vehicle or the vehicle’s accompanying display. • Once a vehicle has won the Pinnacle Award for its respective class (i.e. Hot Rod, Street Machine, Tuner or Custom Cruiser), it is not eligible to compete again for the Pinnacle Award again – unless the organiser deems the vehicle has been sufficiently altered or modified. • Vehicles must be deemed, by the organiser, to meet the spirit of the competition. • The organiser reserves the right to refuse entry without necessarily assigning a reason.
The Eligibility Criteria will be strictly adhered to, with the goal being to remove any grey area to ensure fairness across the Street Elite Showcase classes. MotorEx encourages everybody to build the style of vehicle they want. So if a vehicle does not fit within the Street Elite Showcase criteria, or is deemed by the organiser not to be in the spirit of the competition, it will be placed into the Superstars, ProComp or Exhibition categories.\
