Chip Foose to appear at Toronto Motorama Show in March 2020

TORONTO, ON • The sixth annual Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo will feature a two-day appearance by Chip Foose, the pre-eminent star in the automotive design and fabrication industry.

Foose will be appearing on Saturday and Sunday (March 14 & 15) at Motorama, meeting fellow auto enthusiasts, signing autographs and posing for pictures. The show takes place March 13-15, 2020 at the International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson International Airport.

A four-time winner of the prestigious Ridler Award, at the Detroit Autorama show, Foose is also a seven-time winner of the Goodguys Street Rod of the Year Award. At just 31 years of age, he became the youngest-ever member of the Hot Rod Hall of Fame, when he was inducted in 1997.

The second-generation designer / builder was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, and learned his craft working for his father and with several other talented innovators. Late in the last millennium, Foose and his wife, Lynne, started Foose Design, an automotive and product design development company, which has grown into an industry leader.

Foose’s public profile exploded in 2004 when he launched the TV show Overhaulin’, which ran for a total of nine season, between 2004 and 2015. Overhaulin’ recently returned on the MotorTrend app, which will let viewers view all past and future episodes of the show.

The list of Foose’s long-time sponsor relationships reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the automotive industry. A rock star in the community, his projects are regularly featured at the Las Vegas SEMA show and other high-profile automotive shows and events. Foose and his team at Foose Design are currently working on a 1974 Jaguar E-Type Roadster.

“I’ve appeared at the Toronto show a couple of times over the years, but it’s been a while,” said Foose. “I’m looking forward to returning March 14 and 15, catching up with old friends and making a bunch of new ones, at Motorama.”

Speaking on behalf of Motorama, co-promoter Greg MacPherson said, “We’re extremely excited and proud to announce that Chip Foose is coming to Motorama. This will be our sixth year putting on the show and this is something we’ve hoped would happen since ‘year one.’ We see Chip interacting with his army of fans at SEMA, each year, and we’re looking forward to seeing that happen in Toronto. We’d also like to thank our good friend Bob Larivee Sr. for his help in bringing Chip Foose back to Toronto.”
