On November 25 – 27th 2011 history was made as the Good-Guys held their 1st Fall Del Mar Nationals at the beautiful Del Mar fairgrounds in Southern California. Talk about risk taking, planning a car show near the ocean in late November, and right after the Thanksgiving Holiday! Well, the weather certainly cooperated with highs in the mid-to-upper 70’s, and the participants certainly cooperated with over 1,100 cars registered.
The show was packed with cool cars from all over the country and many of those were long-distance participants who drove their cars thousands of miles to be there (ya’ gotta drive ‘em!). The combination of a world-class destination and all those amazing vehicles make Del Mar a “must do” event for many hot rodders. On Sunday cars of all years were allowed to participate and there were some really nice later model cars that entered.
On a personal note, my ‘63 Ford Galaxie 500 XL was honored with an “Award of Excellence”.
Add this event to your calendar for next year and I’ll see you there!
