November 17, revealing a collection

JOSE, Calif., Nov. 17,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, eBay Motors arrives in
Los Angeles to mark the finale of
its 'Parts of America' tour, the ultimate cross-country car
enthusiast road trip. Since kicking off in September, the tour has
stopped in twelve towns notable for their car cultures and
communities, including sports cars seeking to tame the 'Tail of the
Dragon' in Deals Gap, North
Carolina, 'bagger' motorcycle mods meeting up in
Rogers, Arkansas, and rock
crawling Jeeps in Moab, Utah. With
car enthusiasts descending on Los
Angeles for one of the biggest events of the year, the eBay
Motors Hauler will display, for the first time, the full collection
of wild, one-of-a-kind, custom-modded rides collected along the
route, all made possible with parts from eBay Motors.
"We met builders, maintainers and restorers throughout the
country who showed us what makes their regional car cultures so
special," says Ron Jaiven, GM of
Parts & Accessories, eBay Motors. "These communities are as
unique as the vehicles we picked up along the way, and it was
remarkable to see firsthand how these enthusiasts - professionals
and hobbyists alike - have used our marketplace to support their
deep automotive passions."
While the floor of the LA Auto Show exhibits future designs that
aren't yet off the assembly line, eBay Motors will show the amazing
things that can be done using vehicles on the road today. Four of
the vehicles will be available for purchase, including:
