eBay Motors’ Road Trip Celebrates America’s Car Culture

The "Parts of America" tour will take eBay Motors to 12 automotive enthusiast events across the country.

eBay Motors announced it kicked off a cross-country tour to explore America’s unique car cultures. The “Parts of America” tour will take eBay Motors to 12 automotive enthusiast events across the country – from car meets and cruises to tractor pulls and rock crawls. At each stop, eBay Motors will feature one-of-a-kind vehicles that bring to life the local car culture and the passionate builders behind these remarkable rides, the company says.

“Just as every region of the country has its own iconic landmarks or local food with unique flavors, America’s car culture is just as diverse,” says Ron Jaiven, GM of Parts & Accessories, eBay Motors. “Any serious gearhead can speak to the distinct regional differences of their hometown and debate why it belongs on the automotive map. ‘Parts of America’ celebrates the passion of these communities.”

Throughout the tour, eBay Motors’ hauler will collect and transport eight bespoke vehicles that show what’s possible using parts and accessories from eBay Motors, and represent America’s diverse and remarkable auto cultures. The tour will culminate at the LA Auto Show, where these unique builds will be on display – with many ultimately listed on eBay.

Parts of America’ Route

eBay Motors ‘Parts of America’ tour will kick off Sept. 21 in Hickory Corners, MI, at the Gilmore Car Museum’s Wednesday Night Cruise-In. At the kickoff, experienced street rodder Alex Palmeri of @LegitStreetCars will showcase a 2002 Ford SVT Lightning in a rare, one-year-only “True Blue Metallic” colorway that he’s fitted with a giant Whipple supercharger sourced on eBay Motors. From there, the tour will continue west – stopping at iconic sites like North Carolina’s infamous “Tail of the Dragon” on Route 129 and red rocks of Moab, Utah, all while featuring American sports cars, imports, trucks and bikes along the way.
