Dec. 30, 2015—Gary Meadors, founder of Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, died of natural causes on Sunday, according to a report by USA Today. He was 76 years old.

Meadors started Goodguys over 30 years ago in Northern California and took the group national in 1987. The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has organized over 700 car shows and includes more than 70,000 members, according to the report.

"He was a great ambassador for the old-car hobby," said John Drummond, Goodguys spokesman, according to the report. "Because he was so genuine. People can sniff out a real car guy or a phony guy who is just in it for the promotion. He loved bringing people together to celebrate cars."
