2014 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour Schedule Announced

The 2014 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour is still months away, but you can make plans now for the road trip of a lifetime led by Street Rodder Magazine’s very own Jerry Dixey in his ’59 RT Chevy Impala. Built by award-winning builder Dean Livermore, the lead road tour car is currently undergoing transformations into the road-worthy, head-turning machine it was meant to be. We covered the Impala story last month with a sneak-peek at the rendering.

Since ending the 2013 tour in September, Dixey has set his sights on making the 2014 trip even better and preliminary plans look promising. While the full list of stops and roadside sights is still being finalized, the dates, starting points and destinations have been determined. Road tour participants always enjoy first-class access to the nation’s most renowned automotive museums, hot rod shops, car shows and even the prestigious SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The open road awaits you, so check out the full list below and make plans now to join the exciting convoy that is the AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour. It’s a street rod enthusiasts’ dream that promises to be an unforgettable experience for the young and old alike.
