"What started 36 years ago in March 1983 in Northern California is 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," 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 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 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 Vendor Midway.
The Goodguys 37th All American Get-Together is open this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
General admission is $25, kids (7-12) $10 and 6 and under are free. Active or retired military receive $5 off their general admission with their military ID card. Tickets can be purchased in person or online at good-guys.com. Parking is $10.
