Classic Automobilia Tour Goes Back to the Fifties

The word is out. AMSOIL will be one of the sponsors of this summer’s Street Rodder PPG Road Tour. Leg three of this tour, sponsored by Classic Automobilia, will be especially exciting as it passes through Superior, Wisconsin to visit the newly renovated AMSOIL Center on Wednesday evening, June 18th. Classic Automobilia sells pedal cars and 50’s and 60’s nostalgia items.

This 35th edition of the famed Minnesota Street Rod Association’s Back to the 50’s weekend coincides with the 35th anniversary celebration of AMSOIL INC. and the birth of the synthetic lubricants market. This is one of the largest gatherings of street rods in the world, attracting more than 11,500 registered vehicles last year.

According to Jerry Dixey, tour coordinator, this leg of the Street Rodder PPG Road Tour will begin in Bowling Green, Kentucky and pass through Youngstown, Ohio, and Michigan before chugging into Superior for an evening bar-b-cue. Stops along the way will include the Classic Automobilia 50’s diner showroom in Youngstown, Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a tour of the Henry Ford Museum, and the American Speed Company in Plymouth, Michigan. American Speed is the supplier of this year’s steel 1933 roadster body.

On Thursday morning the Classic Automobilia Tour will gather at the AMSOIL Center to begin their trek through rural Minnesota to St. Paul and Back to the Fifties. Local street rodders will be invited to come along for the ride.
