Hot rodding season is about to kick off with a bang as the Goodguys 37th annual All American Get-Together is coming to Pleasanton to launch the Californian car show season with a bang.
Saturday through Sunday, Goodguys Rod & Custom Association will bring an eclectic collection of more than 3,000 candy colored and chromed hot rods, customs, classics, muscle cars and American made trucks, all at Pleasanton’s Alameda County Fairgrounds.
“What started 36 years ago in March 1983 in Northern California ss still true today. Goodguys events are all about cars … driving them, showing them and hanging out with other car guys. Goodguys … cool cars, cool people and good times,” Goodguys organizers wrote in a statement.
Hardcore car lovers and casual appreciators alike are invited to the highly anticipated event, which is headlined by Goodguys/Street Rod Headquarters 2019 Custom of the Year award competition. Every year the winners raise the bar higher and higher as a huge variety of vehicles from ’36 through ’72, compete for the grand prize.
The smell and sounds of rubber meeting pavement will once again be featured at the highly popular Goodguys AutoCross shootout, but this year with a new twist. Now attendees will have the opportunity to witness two eight-car shootout fields.
With the winner of each AutoCross shootout being invited to the AutoCross season finale, the Duel in the Desert in Scottsdale in November, the competition is expected to be as action packed as always.
Other highlights of the show include the lowrider display presented by Deadend Magazine, a kids model car program by Auto World, the Nitro Thunderfest, burn out competition and, of course, the massive the vendor midway.
The Goodguys 37th All American Get-Together is open Saturday, March 30, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 31, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
