Gary Meadors, GoodGuys founder, RIP

Just found out that Gary Meadors, the founder of GoodGuys, died Sunday at his home in Arizona. Dang, I'm gonna miss seeing him at the shows. He and I talked several times about beating cancer. RIP, my friend!

I saw that on Facebook. I've never been to a "GoodGuys" event, but I do know they are a big deal. Sorry for the loss of your friend, Bill.

Re: Gary Meadors, GoodGuys founder, RIP

My friend and I snuck out of work early for lunch one day (circa late 1990's) in my ole Model A Tudor to attend a local rod shop that was sponsoring a lunch deal for the Goodguys traveling road show as they went from one event to the other.

Gary Meadors was driving his custom made "Moal" roadster.

Gary Meadors walked by my friend and made some snide comment about him wearing a tie?

It was a true "wtf" moment.

Bill knew the guy.. we didn't.

RIP Gary.... thanks for bringing all those Street Rodders together.

John, sorry if that offended you, but, knowing Gary, it was just his way of telling you to relax and enjoy. He was all about having a good time, enjoying life, hot rods and friends.

Re: Gary Meadors, GoodGuys founder, RIP

one of Vic's childhood friends was Gary's buddy's before he was as we all know him, they used to hang out, go camping and of course car shows, I heard about it very soon after his passing.

he was a nice guy but he was a very busy guy never really had time to sit and just BS, the times I was able to visit with him he was nice but never very warm.
