'Parts of America' tour will stop in small
towns throughout the country, partnering with builders to assemble
a full collection of rides that represents the best of car culture
in the US
JOSE, Calif., Sept. 21,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, eBay Motors, the parts
and accessories destination used by millions of car lovers,
builders, restorers and mechanics, kicks off a cross-country tour
to explore America's unique car cultures. The 'Parts of America'
tour will take eBay Motors to twelve 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.
"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
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.
Rising inflation and lack of inventory are driving more and more
Americans to update and mod their existing vehicles rather than
purchase a new one. To provide ideas and inspiration, 'Parts of
America' is taking these custom rides on the road, along with the
builder enthusiasts who created them.
