UNDER THE HOOD

SEMA Hall of Fame Names Three New Members
June 22, 2016

Matt Agosta, Chip Foose and Gary Hooker will receive the industry’s highest honor and be inducted into the SEMA Hall of Fame.

The new members will be recognized as part of the festivities during the SEMA Installation Gala, Friday, July 29, 2016, at the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center in Pomona, California. They represent an accomplished group of leaders who have shaped and inspired the automotive specialty-equipment market.

Chip Foose: As the star of the hit television show "Overhaulin’,” Foose is among the most well-known builders in the industry, and arguably responsible for introducing car customization and hot rodding to a mainstream audience worldwide. Before launching Foose Design, Foose created and fabricated projects for influential corporations and OEMs. His work can be seen in the National Football League, Major League Baseball and movies, including "Blade Runner,” "Robo Cop” and "Gone in 60 Seconds.” In 1997, Foose was the youngest person to ever be inducted into the Hot Rod Hall of Fame. He has also received the Goodguys Trendsetter Award and dozens of awards for winning vehicle builds.

Join us for an evening with our industry's Leaders and Legends.

The annual SEMA Installation and Gala serves as the venue where our association thanks its outgoing Board members and welcomes those newly elected. It is also the setting in which we announce Matt Agosta, Chip Foose and Gary Hooker as the newest inductees for the SEMA Hall of Fame, who represent not only our industry's history but also its members' dedication, service and devotion to their businesses.
