Six Automotive Restoration Market Organization (ARMO)-member companies received Best New Product awards through the ARMO Hot Products Showcase, a council program that convenes each year at the Spring Carlisle Swap Meet and Classic Car auction in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
This year’s showcase, which exposed ARMO-members’ products to 100,000-plus restoration and classic-car enthusiasts, included more than 70 unique submissions.
“Spring Carlisle is the ideal time and place for ARMO members to promote their restoration products at no charge to a worldwide consumer audience,” said ARMO Director Jim Skelly. “This year’s Best New Products represent the innovation and passion of our industry, and we look forward recognizing our winners during the 2021 SEMA Show ARMO reception.”
