Cliff McAdoo, 67, of Avilla, knows cars. His 50-plus years of car-building experience culminated this month when he was awarded the 2011 Arkansas Street Rodder of the Year by his peers.
"I was nominated back in November by James Hallman, a fellow street rodder," McAdoo explains.
In March, an awards dinner, with approximately 200 in attendance, was held in Conway for the 10 Arkansas nominees.
