On November 22 – 24th 2013 the Good-Guys held their 3rd Fall Del Mar Nationals at the beautiful Del Mar fairgrounds in Southern California. This show will not be held next year due a change in the horse racing schedule; that may portend the end of this scheduled event. In any event, planning a car show near the ocean in late November is risky, and sure enough there was rain on Friday; Saturday and Sunday were bright sunny days, just the way we like it.

Although there were 1,000 registered cars I believe the actual participation might have been slightly lower. None-the-less, the show was packed with cool cars from all over the country and many of those were long-distance participants who drove their cars hundreds 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. The slalom racing certainly drew a crowd and if you were looking for a car to buy, or parts, there was the "for sale" section with some really nice cars for parts, right next to the parts swap-meet. On Sunday, American cars of all years were allowed to participate and there were some really nice later model cars were entered.
