Meet the Star of the 2010 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour

The 2010 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour kicked off May 15, and has since logged nearly 20,000 miles throughout the summer. Leading the tour this year is a custom-built ’27 Shadow Rods XL 27 Roadster Pickup, with Editor Jerry Dixey at the helm. AMSOIL has been a proud sponsor of this tour since 2008 and naturally, AMSOIL is installed throughout to ensure the engine lives up to the many miles ahead of it.

Built by Zane Cullen of Cotati Speed Shop, the Roadster has been turning heads across the country in all of its shiny blue-painted glory. Cotati did an excellent job of creating the vision, and proved the point that a street rod can still be built using today’s industry products and driven anytime, anywhere. One of the main focal points is the pick-up bed made from wood featuring a ‘floating’ platform and a race-inspired nose that also adds to the unique end result. Countless tweaks, customizations, and attention to every possible detail turned out one of the best road tour vehicles thus far.

For all the details on the 2010 AMSOIL Street Rodder Road Tour Roadster, pick up a copy of the November issue of Street Rodder Magazine. They feature story shows pictures of the shell they started with, and how they turned it into the showstopper it became. You can see the Roadster above as it just arrived in Burlington, VT for the NSRA event there this week.
