Goodguys ’69 Camaro Build

Jun 18, 2012

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association will be forever tied to the Thom Taylor-penned cartoon of Gary Meadors 1932 Ford sedan. Meadors’ famed sedan has stood tall as the company logo for close to three decades.

The bright yellow sedan has crisscrossed the country dozens of times and racked up over 200,000 road miles spreading the Goodguys spirit nationwide. It now has company.

A new project is currently under way to build upon the Goodguys legacy. “Project G/RS” is a ground-hugging, pavement-pounding ’69 Camaro muscle machine that will be added to the Goodguys stable this fall, according to a press release.

The Goodguy-yellow Camaro will essentially be used to further promote the Goodguys brand throughout the country on the open road as well as on the Goodguys autocross course and other driving events, the release noted.

Handling the build is Bret Voelkel and his RideTech team in Jasper, Ind. The car will feature General Motors’ new LSA engine, TREMEC six-speed transmission, complete RideTech suspension, Moser rear end, PPG paint, Baer brakes, Forgeline wheels, BFGoodrich rubber, Vintage Air A/C, Dakota Digital gauges, an interior by Hudson Rod & Custom, RECARO seats, a fuel tank by Rick’s Tanks, American Autowire harness and goodies from Speedway Motors and Rick’s Camaro Parts.

“The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and my dad’s yellow ’32 Ford sedan are known throughout the world,” said Marc Meadors, company president. “Gary’s ’32 will be forever tied to Goodguys and all we do. We wanted to add to that legacy by building a muscle car and adding it to the Goodguys logo and company theme-something that represents the current landscape of hot rodding. Much like my father’s hot rod, this Goodguy-yellow Camaro will be driven hard and shared with cars guys and gals nationwide.”

Project updates will be posted online.
