2018 GOODGUYS Rod & Custom Show

Jamming the Gears for Over 30 Years

RISK. It’s an inherent factor in every business endeavor. Mix in passion, drive, vision and persistence, and you’ve got the makings of eventually a successful enterprise.

Back in the early ’80s Gary Meadors had a vision to create a show series where hot rod and classic car and truck enthusiasts could come together to show o_ their vehicles, cruise, bench race and bond over the sights of glistening paint and chrome and sounds of crackling cams and thumping exhausts. A devout gearhead himself, Gary had a deep-rooted passion for all things hot rod. Having had experience in promoting hot rod shows since 1973 and working for the National Street Rod Association as the premier event director, Gary possessed pure passion for the world of hot rodding and experience in what it took to pull off a successful event.

He rowed the gears of determination, doubled down on his passion and took the show on his own road and started Goodguys in 1983 and incorporated in 1987. With his wife Marilyn and boys Marc and Marty by his side Goodguys accelerated through the decades and today has flourished to a membership of over 70,000 people and 19 events that corral some of the nation’s fi nest hot rods and more importantly people together.
