In no particular order

CARHUNTER had obligations, but was able to find some, but limited photos of the finalists!
Look them over
Use this link for more detailed photos so you can choose too!
 
1933 Ford Coupe Bobby Jordan Portland Oregon
A lot of work went into this one  
 1928 Ford Pickup Dennis Portka Hamburg NY
Nice clean traditional look
 1932 Ford Sedan George Poteet Memphis Tennessee
Mix of old and new, but does it draw you in?
 1941 Ford Pickup Ed Sears Annapolis Maryland
Very nice truck
 1954 Corvette Robbie Griffin Powell Tennessee
CARHUNTER top 3 pick, but does it have what it takes?
 1930 Ford Coupe Ted Hubbard South Bend Nebraska
Unique while leaning on traditional Hot Rod look 
CARHUNTER top 3
 1966 Corvette Scott Roth South Burlington Vermont
I knew something was different and this Vette's body is actually 6" wider
CARHUNTER top 3 for sure
 1949 Chevrolet Pickup Robby Collvins Mt. Vernon Texas
I left it for last because I am going to commit this early to this being the CARHUNTER pick for the Ridler Award!
It is hard to really pick without close inspection, but I think the 1st impression when it triggers a thought of something unique immediately coupled with detail after detail on every part will take the Ridler, the $10,000 prize and trophy!
 
What would you pick, will CARHUNTER keep a perfect record?
Stay tuned as I may update over the weekend eventually revealing the winner!  
AND THE WINNER IS?
