On The Road

Street Rodder - - Contents -

♦ The 2018 edi­tion of the United Pa­cific/ STREET ROD­DER Road Tour wraps up with the Sherm’s Cus­tom Plat­ing Tour. The Sherm’s Tour is al­ways one of the most pop­u­lar of the sum­mer. For many, it is a fam­ily re­union as the Road Tour West Coast reg­u­lars have made Sherm’s an an­nual event.

The Sherm’s Tour be­gins as the AMSOIL Tour wraps up its cross­coun­try trip from Cruisin’ the Coast in Biloxi, Mis­sis­sippi, to Huntington Beach. Our first night on the Tour will be Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12, with a party at the Mo­tor Trend Tech Cen­ter in Santa Ana, Cal­i­for­nia. On Satur­day we will visit United Pa­cific’s fa­cil­ity in Long Beach, fol­lowed by a tour of the Queen Mary.

Sun­day we will head to Pomona with a stop at the Petersen Au­to­mo­tive Mu­seum and Santa Mon­ica Pier. Mon­day and Tues­day we will visit shops in the Pomona area, in­clud­ing a party at Coker Tire’s fa­cil­ity in City of In­dus­try. We will also at­tend a spe­cial get-to­gether at the NHRA Wally Parks Mo­tor­sports Mu­seum. Wed­nes­day we will start the morn­ing with cof­fee and doughnuts at the NHRA Mo­tor­sports Mu­seum. We have de­cided to in­vite any rod­der who wants to join in the fun as we make the drive north to Bak­ers­field. Our route will take us on the old back­roads through the high desert. On the way, we will stop and visit with hot rod icon Gene Win­field and see his shop in Mo­jave. We will ar­rive in Bak­ers­field on Wed­nes­day evening. Thurs­day we will make some day trips around the Bak­ers­field area.

Things will get fired up at Famoso Race­way north of Bak­ers­field on Fri­day morn­ing. The Sherm’s Cus­tom Plat­ing Tour par­tic­i­pants will be park­ing their ve­hi­cles in the cov­eted Grove area right be­hind the grand­stands. We will spend the week­end ex­pe­ri­enc­ing all the sights and sounds that make up the NHRA Cal­i­for­nia Hot Rod Re­union. The Re­union is known for the huge turnout of vin­tage drag rac­ers and cars. It is def­i­nitely the place to be on Oc­to­ber 19-21.
