Classic Instruments’ Owner John McLeod Wins HRIA Industry Recognition Award at SEMA

Boyne City, MI, December 2nd, 2019 — We are proud to announce that our owner, John McLeod, recently received The Hot Rod Industry Alliance’s Industry Recognition Award. John was presented the award during our company’s trip to the annual SEMA, Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association, show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Each year, the HRIA presents this award to an individual who has made an “exceptional contribution to the Hot Rod industry over a period of the past 10 years; the recipient must be an employee or principle of an HRIA member company in good standing” and this award is specifically presented to an individual for his or her contributions rather than to the company as a whole.

Over the past 10 years John has contributed immensely to furthering the hot rod industry through many new product innovations and support of various organizations who exist solely to build the industry. He has served on the board for the HRIA and held various other board positions. John continually motivates and provides his company resources to help build on the industry’s presence and has contributed through multiple channels to help get youth involved in the industry.

In addition to his time spent furthering the hot rod industry, John also serves as a Boyne City Police officer. He believes in giving back locally and also helping to further his local community. Fellow industry professional and company friend, Kyle Tucker of Detroit Speed Engineering, perhaps said it best, “He is a truly stand-up guy and has done incredible things in the custom car world.”

“I certainly never expected or sought to be recognized in this way, but it is truly an amazing honor and it was a very humbling experience to receive recognition in front of all of my industry friends” said John “I consider it reward enough that I get to work and play every day within an industry that I love, but this has certainly been a pleasant surprise.”
