Troy Trepanier was announced as the winner of the 2017 SEMA Battle of the Builders competition during SEMA Ignited—the official SEMA Show after-party—held at the conclusion of the 2017 SEMA Show.
Trepanier’s ’29 Ford Model-A Tudor sedan edged out the builds of fellow top-three finalists Alan Johnson (’32 Ford Tudor) and Troy Ladd (’36 Packard roadster) for the title. The three builders will be featured along with many other SEMA Show builders in a new episode of the TV special “SEMA: Battle of the Builders,” which will premiere on the Velocity Channel, Tuesday, January 2, 2018, at 10:00 p.m. (PST/EST).
This year’s SEMA Battle of the Builders competition began with nearly 300 applications from builders representing an elite group of individuals who have demonstrated talent, creativity and craftsmanship in modifying cars, trucks and SUVs.
