The Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour Stops in Chattanooga

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is a popular car show series, that spans the United States with high end hot rod events. As if the 2016 show schedule wasn’t busy enough, the Goodguys staff and a group of hot rodders departed on the Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour. The event is in memory of Goodguys founder, Gary Meadors, and it consists of 7 days and 1,800 miles from Chicago, Illinois to Fort Worth, Texas. The tour not only features scenic drives, but also includes shop tours of some of the coolest automotive aftermarket facilities in the country, and they put Coker Tire on their list of venues to visit.

The Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour kicked off in the Chicago area, and has visited the Roadster Shop, Ridetech and many more shops and vendors that are in the street rod industry. On day 3 of their journey, the tour stopped at Lokar for a tour and lunch, and then a quick tour of Bobby Alloway’s shop. From there, the group headed south to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where they rolled in to check out Coker Tire. We supplied the food and a cool setting for a street-style cruise in, and the tour participants spent a few hours hanging out and enjoying the facility. Corky made a brief appearance, and addressed the crowd, applauding them for touring the country because “that wears out tires”!

Faces in the crowd included Dave Lane, George Poteet, Dave Kindig, Mark Steilow and many more. Also on hand were Goodguys staffers, including a former Goodguys staffer (Steve Anderson) who now works next door Honest Charley Speed Shop and often serves as a tour guide for Coker Tire’s daily tours. Take a look at the high end hot rods, muscle cars and classic trucks that rolled into Chattanooga, Tennessee for the day 3 dinner stop on the Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour.

Although this GMC pickup looks a little rough around the edges…a closer look reveals a nicely detailed LS engine under the hood and a full leather interior treatment. It’s running on a set of BFG blackwall radial tires, including our BFGoodrich Silvertown 285/70R15 rears. We like the looks of the cast Rocket Injector wheels!
