Goodguys Road Tour Day 5 Recap: Crossing the finish line

    The grand finale of 1,800 miles in 5 days on the Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour with 42 sweet vintage customs. Let’s just say they saved some of the best places for last…

    After the grueling 550 miles of day 4, everyone was pretty thrilled to have a lighter day filled with multiple stops as our time on the 2015 Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour finally came to an end.

    We started the morning off at Comp Cams, just outside Memphis. You gearheads already know the name, and you know they do a heck of a lot more than just make camshafts. They invited us in for a behind-the-scenes tour of their massive manufacturing facility where we watched cams be made the old-fashioned way (by hand) and in their huge CNCs. At the end of the tour, we were even treated to donuts and coffee while they tested a cam on a dyno before raffling off hundreds of dollars worth of gift certificates and Comp Cams swag.

    From Comp, it was a quick shot out of Memphis to Nashville for a stop at Greening Auto Company. The Greenings had been on the Goodguys Road Tour with us in a sweet little roadster and a mean Apache pickup, so we knew they had loads of talent. Their shop only furthered this notion. Everywhere you look, there’s another incredible creation, along with plenty of hardware telling of their accolades.

    Finally, we drove just a little bit north to Bowling Green for our final stop on the 1,800 mile Goodguys Hall of Fame Road Tour: Holley Performance.

    In the world of carburetors, Holley is synonymous with performance, and like Comp Cams, they’ve diversified over the years to offer everything from EFI to NOS to headers. The fine folks at Holley were kind enough to roll out the red carpet for a full factory tour.

    So 3 stops in one day, each with enough to make a car-lover smile ear-to-ear the whole trip. It was a perfect ending to an 1,800 mile adventure filled with incredible custom rides, a few mishaps and breakdowns, and plenty of fun on the road. The Goodguys Road Tour may have been over, but the fun was just starting in Bowling Green as the Goodguys 4th Nostalgia Nationals kicked off the next day.
