The Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour

America’s Top Custom Cars and Hot Rods Coming to Your City! 

Pleasanton, CA - The Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour presented by Meguiar’s and Barrett Jackson will be rumbling through your city soon! The colorful tour, covering 8 states, and 2,400 road miles, left Goodguys Rod & Custom Association headquarters in Pleasanton, California Thursday, September 25th. The tour ends Thursday, October 2nd at Texas Motor Speedway outside Ft Worth. The tour is dedicated to the memory of Jack Trepanier – an Illinois-based custom car builder who died earlier this year.

The cars will be arriving in Lincoln, Nebraska on Tuesday, September 30th. Some of the featured vehicles include the Goodguys G/RS 1969 Camaro, Mark & Ellen Willman’s 1956 Buick Special, Glenn Grozich’s “Chicayne” 1962 Chevy Biscayne and Bill Raper’s 1954 Pontiac Star Chief. In all, around 40 cars are participating in the unique driving event.

“It’s like the pages of America’s favorite custom car magazine’s coming to life,” said tour director Ed Capen of Goodguys. “People see these cars in the magazines often wonder if they ever get driven. Some of these cars are valued at over one million dollars. This road tour puts that question to rest,” Capen said.

The adventurous 8-day Hall of Fame Road Tour travels through California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. Along the way, the tour will be stopping at hot rod factories and speed shops such as Lucky 7 Speed Shop (Sutter Creek, CA), RaceDeck Flooring and KinDig-It Design (Salt Lake City, UT), Pinkee’s Rod Shop (Windsor, CO), Speedway Motors (Lincoln, NE), the Lawrence Smith Collection (Wichita, KS) Steve Cook Creations and Ted Davis’ Collection (Oklahoma City, OK) and others.
