Goodguys Founder and Chairman Gary Meadors got a nice surprise at last night’s 64th annual Grand National Roadster awards ceremony. The head Goodguy himself received the Brizio Family “Driven” Award which is presented annually to a pre-’49 street-driven rod.

Meadors’  ’48 Chrysler Town & Country was on display at the event in the Hot Rods & Hobbies booth – builders of the long, lean and low convertible. Fittingly, Meadors hopped in the car and drove it to Pomona, CA from his home in Cave Creek, Arizona then jumped back in and drove it back home Monday morning!

Long a believer in driving hot rods instead of putting them on a trailer, the Meadors Town & Country convertible, which debuted last year, has already been driven over 10,000 road miles (with rock chips to prove it) including last fall’s Rodfather/Goodguys Road Tour to Indianapolis and back.

Look for Meadors cruisin’ the Town & Country on a highway near you!

Congrats Gary!
