By SEMA Editors

Gary Meadors

The Celebration of Life for Goodguys Rod & Custom Association founder Gary Meadors is set for Sunday, February 14, at 1:00 p.m. The event, “Gary’s Get-Together,” will be held at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville, California (3700 Blackhawk Plaza Circle, Danville, CA 94506). All are welcome to attend. Meadors passed away Sunday, December 27, 2015.

The event will gather family, friends, fans, business associates and hot rodders to celebrate the life of the man credited with advancing the hobby of hot rodding through Goodguys’ national network of rod and custom events. Among Blackhawk Plaza’s general parking lot, approximately 200 spaces will be reserved specifically for hot rods and custom cars.

Those unable to attend will get a chance to pay their respects to Meadors through a reception and video tribute that will be staged at select Goodguys national events this year. In lieu of flowers, the Meadors family requests donations be made to the Save the Salt Foundation.
