The 10th Goodguys Del Mar Nationals presented by Meguiar’s began Friday at the scenic Del Mar Fairgrounds! The event ran through Sunday and featured about 2,000, pre-’72 rods, customs and classics! It was a bit chilly in the early morning, but the sun would come out in full force for the throng of exhibitors and spectators. After exiting the last building of Show n’ Shine cars, there is a huge parking lot dedicated to every type of car imaginable. There were muscle cars, coupes, roadsters, trucks, station wagons, Woodys, vintage and classic cars of all descriptions. This event also offers; a Swap Meet , Cars For Sale area, Hot Rod seminars, a great “Street Challenge Auto Cross”, a Model & Pedal Car show, and Live Nostalgia entertainment all day
Over 350 vendors provided a wide variety of goods included; Hoists, lifts, auto parts, Time shares, personalized license plates, engines, Chinese Acupuncture and messages, polishes, jewelry, art, original gas pumps. That was only part of what was offered, for they had; auto insurance, custom car shops, slot racers, bric-a-brac, Hawaiian and hot rod shirts, golden oldies music and tapes, bicycles, drivelines, grills, hubcaps, tools, motorcycles and choppers, gaskets, rims, wheels, car seats and signs. If you “mosey” along it is impossible to see this show in one or two full days.
Every so often cars will leave their marked space and make a cruise down the Cruise route, past the Woody’s pavilion and come back down the Cruise route to the hoots and hollers of their friends and admiring public. Everywhere you go there are friendly people, who will willingly talk to you about their cars, offer you a chair and make you feel right at home. If you mosey along it is impossible to see this show in one or two full days.
Fantastic cars, wonderful people, warm and sunny weather, and a show that never seems to end, wraps up this year’s Goodguys Del Mar Show.
Thanks for the Show!
