A few weeks have passed since we first announced the 12 finalists vying for the title of Chevy Hardcore 2017 Feature Car Of The Year. To make that announcement, we posted an article that asked you guys to give us a little help. The article didn’t ask you to send money or car parts – although we wouldn’t object to getting either, but it did showcase 12 of the coolest Chevy Hardcore feature cars that we brought you in 2017. The thing was, we needed help from you guys to choose which one of the twelve should be crowned as the Chevy Hardcore 2017 Feature Car of The Year.
In that previous article, we gave you guys the choice of what we felt was a mix of very nicely restored cars that represent history, a few that represent the modified genre quite well, and even a few that some might call a daily driver. Regardless of why each car earned its inclusion onto the list, they were all deserving of being included. We realize this is the Internet and articles come and go quickly, so if you’re so inclined, you can check out the original article.
Many of the replies we received came via the comments section of the website, and a lot of you even replied via Facebook. Right off the bat, we thought we had an early winner. But as the votes continued to pour in, the outcome came down to the wire. The final tally was a real nail biter, but when the votes were finally counted, the car chosen as this year’s Chevy Hardcore’s 2017 Feature Car of The Year, turned out to be Jesse Halfacre’s ’66 Chevelle. While Jesse’s car is a gorgeous ride, we’re fairly certain that the story behind how he built it is what really sealed the deal.
All of the cars on the list were worthy of being chosen as the winner. For a more in-depth look at each car, you can click on the car owner’s names to see the original feature.
