Dan Cyr Enterprises, Inc. (DCE) announced that its 56th Annual Grand National Roadster Show at the Pomona Fairplex January 21-23, 2005, will be awash with famous celebrities and their rides. From Cindy Williams and Paul LeMat of American Graffiti fame, accompanied by the movie's famous yellow '32 Milner Coupe and the '55 Chevy driven by Harrison Ford, to six custom cars from the hit TV show Overhaulin' and their creator, chief designer and legendary hot rodder Chip Foose, the cars of the stars will take center stage.

Vern Troyer, who portrayed Mini Me in the Austin Powers films, will be on hand to sign autographs Saturday and Sunday, along with stars Cindy Williams and Paul LeMat, who will also be available for autographs both Saturday and Sunday. Troy Trepanier, guest designer from the TLC's Rides will showcase the 1967 "Fast Forward Fastback" Mustang he created for eBay Motors, a custom-bodied, supercharged, 550hp monster, which subsequently sold for more than $150,000 and the 1970 Barracuda designed by Foose and owned by Joe Rogan, the host of Fear Factor, will also be on display.

In addition, custom fabricator Matt Hotch accompanied by the amazing custom motorcycles he built on the Discovery Channel's Great Biker Build-Off, will be on hand Saturday for photos and autographs. His bikes will be on display to help inaugurate the Grand National Roadster Show's first-ever "America's Most Beautiful Motorcycle" competition and its $5,000 award purse. Like the show's longstanding "America's Most Beautiful Roadster" trophy, awarded each year to a spectacular hot rod, the new motorcycle competition is open to U.S.-made and manufactured custom motorcycles. The winner will receive his or her name on a perpetual trophy, along with a mantle trophy and a check for $3,000.
