Osoyoos, British Columbia — JF Launier, founder of JF Kustoms in Osoyoos, British Columbia has won the top prize at Toronto’s Motorama, taking home the Grand Champion award.

Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo—which took place at the International Centre in Toronto, Ontario—judged Launier’s design to be “the cream of the crop” of over 400 eligible vehicles.

The 1967 Ford Mercury Cougar won first prize and a $5,000 cheque for its innovative custom build.

Dubbed the Mercury Predator, the pastel green vehicle was celebrated for its high build quality and Launier was also praised at the show for his attention to detail on the model.

On top of winning this Grand Champion award, Launier also recently won his fifth Great 8 finalist award as well as $1,000 at Detroit’s Autorama on March 1st.

This win positions Launier as the builder with the most Great 8 wins in history.

Winners of the Great 8 Award are judged based on their creativity, engineering and quality workmanship.

In response to this success, Launier commented that “I am incredibly proud to have achieved the most wins by a builder. This accomplishment would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of my team at JF Kustoms.”

Alongside Motorama achievements, JF Kustoms has also made a guest appearance on the show Rust Valley Restorers.
