SEMA is known for outlandish builds and pushing the automotive aftermarket community to the bleeding edge of innovation and creativity. Mike and Jim Ring’s 1948 Chevy Loadmaster, nicknamed “Enyo”, embodies this ethos, and as such, has won the SEMA 2022 Battle of the Builders (BoB).
The Battle of the Builders represents SEMA’s wildest and craziest builds of the year. For 2022, Ringbrothers pulled all the stops, and built an extreme, one-off work of art. As previously reported by GM Authority, the mind-boggling Enyo is Ringbrothers’ most extreme build yet, boasting custom body work, a one-off chassis, and a huge 510-cubic-inch Goodwin racing engine. This build is so detailed, it took Ringbrothers a staggering 10,000 hours to build, making it certainly worth the prestigious SEMA Ultimate Builder Award.
Because winning one award isn’t enough, Ringbrothers also took home second place in the competition with a 1972 Chevy K5 Blazer, nicknamed “Bully”. Mild in comparison to the Enyo, the Blazer features a 6.2L V8 LS3 engine with a humongous 2.9 Whipple supercharger strapped on top, a new chassis, and an entirely bespoke interior. Additionally, Bully has many small, unique touches spattered all over.
“Year after year, the SEMA show gives us the opportunity to showcase what we are most passionate about,” said Mike Ring, co-owner of Ringbrothers. “This year, we had the opportunity to unveil four of our most extreme builds, both in design and execution. With the support from our partners and the enthusiast community, we continue to push the boundaries of custom car building which is what we originally set out to do.”
One thing is clear: Ringbrothers have firmly established themselves as a leader of unique and striking aftermarket builds, and we look forward to what they’ll bring to the table next year.
