Most Admired Entrepreneur:

Having lived in the automotive aftermarket for the last 25-years my faves include Barry Mequiar; Mequiar's Inc.; Corky Coker: The Coker Group; Myles Kovacs: DUB; and Hot Rod Valdez: Industry personality and event planner - These folks may not be household names to the average person, but they've sure changed the hot rod and classic car industry!
