Steele Rubber Products is proud to be the Official Weatherstrip partner of the 2015 Street Rodder Road Tour. The tour consists of eight separate week long family oriented vacation hot rod tours. Each tour starts at an automotive oriented event and proceeds to a week on the road visiting shops, museums, private collections and manufacturers. The Road Tour is the best example of why we love this industry and hobby. It’s not just about the cars, but also the people and families involved in this great pastime of hot rodding.
In addition to the eight weeks of events, the Road Tour also sponsors a primary tour vehicle, built by one of the nation’s premier hot rod builders. For 2015, Troy Ladd and his company, Hollywood Hot Rods, will be building a 1961 Ford Sunliner custom, designed by Eric Black. Troy is an award winning hot rod builder from California that mixes old school looks with modern technologies and conveniences. The Sunliner will not only be a beautiful car, but also a dependable driver. And, of course, every bit of rubber weatherstripping and seals will be provided by Steele Rubber Products.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Street Rodder Road Tour. The tour was founded by long-time friend of Steele, Jerry Dixey, who has attended every single one! Jerry also gets the privilege of driving the Road Tour featured vehicle in all of the events. Jerry’s commitment to the tour is another example of the quality individuals involved in this hobby of ours. For 2015, he will kick off the tour in Los Angeles at the NHRA Museum, with tour events scheduled for Texas, Michigan, Pennsylvania Tennessee and Vermont
If you get a chance to visit any of the tour events, check out the beautiful Sunliner and say hello to Jerry. You can also visit with many of the sponsoring companies – great organizations that represent the positive values and American spirit of hot rodding that Steele Rubber Products has embraced for over fifty years. At Steele, we truly believe you are only as good as the people and companies that you associated yourself with. The Road Tour’s leadership, history, participants and sponsors are some of the best people in the industry – and we are proud to once again be a part of the Tour.
