Street Rodder Magazine, the largest publication of 1948 and older street rods and hot rods present their annual vacation tours to some of the largest car shows in the country. The six tours take place from May through October and on June 13th the San Antonio,TX to the Los Angeles Roadster Show (Pomona, CA) stopped by with 40-plus cars for a tour of the shop and a delicious lunch.
Rick Love of Vintage Air was the tour director and did an excellent in keeping the group on time for their various stops. Celebrities in the group included Jerry Dixey, Tim Foss and Ron Ceridono of Street Rodder, Jack Chisenhall, president of Vintage Air, Tex Smith and Jake Jacobs. Everyone was ready to cool off when they arrived at Hi-Speed since they had just spent three hours touring the Pima Air and Space Museum outside of Tucson. After a couple of hours of touring the shop and eating lunch they climbed back into their cool rods and were all back on the road headed for their night stop in Phoenix.
Also on hand for the tour stop was Dan Ryan, sports director of KVOA, the local NBC affiliate in Tucson to do a story on the Hi-Speed shop and the visiting cars. The spot aired that night on the 6:00 and 10:00PM news.......thanks Dan!
