Street Rodder Road Tour Kick-Off

A group of 14 West Coast hot rodders kicked off a drive from Los Angeles to Louisville, Ky at our headquarters on July 30th. The group is heading for the NSRA Street Rod Nationals next weekend. The Road Tour is put together by the great crew at Street Rodder Magazine. The magazine puts together quite a few road trips during the summer. Jerry Dixie, the lead driver, drive tens of thousands of miles each summer promoting Street Rodder and the Road Tour. We cannot thank them enough for letting California Car Cover and our new Golden Shine Car Care Products be the official car care provider for the tour.

Each participant on this leg of the tour was given a small goodie bag of Golden Shine products to keep his or her classic looking its best on the road.
This is the official Street Rodder Road Tour vehicle that Jerry has been driving all summer. Since May, he has already put 12,000 miles on it. Now, that's a daily driver.

14 classic and unique automobiles are driving from LA to Louisville. Here are some photos of the cars making the haul.





The guys from Custom Built Machines, located here in Chatsworth, drove over a few project cars to display during the meeting and talk cars with the drivers.


It was a nice morning to get together with local hot rod enthusiasts and hang out before everyone had to depart.


Jerry, the tour coordinator, holds a daily driver meeting so everyone knows what to expect and where to go. The first's day trip includes a little more detail as Jerry outlines what to do and what not to do. We assume that you should just listen up and follow him to Louisville.
Here's Jerry relaxing in the Chevy Sampan that John Schiess ( in the back) of Custom Built Machines is currently working on at his shop.
The cars head out of California Car Cover and get on the road. Next stop, Arizona. Again, thanks to John, Tim, Jerry and the rest of the Street Rodder crew for letting us be a part of the fun.
