Road Rules – Scenes and Tales from Well-Traveled Rods and Customs
The lure of the road trip is as old as the automobile itself – probably much older when you think about it. Many of us are susceptible to the siren call that leads us over the hill and beyond the horizon to see what there is to discover. Here at Goodguys, we think the journey is even sweeter when you take it in a vintage vehicle.
Goodguys founder Gary Meadors knew the appeal of the open road. “Ya gotta drive ’em” was his mantra and he backed it up by logging hundreds of thousands of miles behind the wheel of his hot rods and customs to events around the country. “You’re not gettin’ the most out of a hot rod if you’re not driving it down the backroads of America,” Meadors was known to say.
Thankfully, there are plenty of Goodguys members who share that same spirit. You’re not afraid to hop in that old ride and hit the road – not just to an event an hour or two from home, but to stops and sights across this great land of ours. You’re eager to join us on the annual Hall of Fame Road Tour caravan, and you’re also game for those wonderful, soul-stirring solo and small-group journeys.
We wanted to hear some tales from the road and found a few long haulers to share stories – and photos – of their adventures in well-traveled rods and cruisers. From topless journeys to the coast in a Deuce roadster, to logging hundreds of thousands of miles over several decades in a street rod, these road-proven machines prove that rods and customs really do deliver more smiles per mile.
To celebrate these drivers we’re going to feature six road-worthy rides this week right here on FuelCurve.com starting tomorrow and running through Friday. It’s a big country out there, with countless roads to explore. Why not do so behind the wheel of a vintage ride?
