GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…WE WERE THERE
No one puts on a classic car show like the Good Guys. And there’s no better way to spend a day that looking a gorgeous cars in a nice setting. But it’s even better when its in your own backyard. The Good Guys are based out of Pleasanton CA, same as yours truly. And they got their start at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. They get back there four times a year and put on quite a show. This go-round is called their Summer Get-Together, and it’s just pure plain fun!
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…CARS, CARS, CARS!
Everywhere you turned there were hundreds of cars. Sometimes in groups, sometimes at random. There was an area for old trucks, for lowriders, for lead sleds. The nice thing about the Fairgrounds in Pleasanton is that there is always lots of shade.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…WE GOT HEART!
Car guys have heart, heart for their cars, heart for their brand, heart for their club. And it really shows at the Good Guys.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…YOU SEE IT ALL!
You really do see it all at the Good Guys. This crazy Radio Flyer dragster turned heads everywhere it went. There was stuff happening everywhere, people were in a good mood and having fun.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…VENDORS GALORE!
There must be hundreds of vendors selling everything imaginable, and not just purely car-stuff. But mostly car stuff.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…LOTS TO DO

GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…AUTO CROSS
There was even an Auto Cross track set up in the parking lot, and anyone could run their car. Above a late model Mustang tests his metal, and below a ’68 Camaro heaves through a tight turn. Auto Cross is a tight course that never allows you to build up any speed, and tests the cars acceleration, cornering, braking and your ability to balance it all. The guys who look like they’re going the fastest often get the worst times. The smooth drivers, the ones who don’t look all that rushed, tend to do better.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-JUNE 2014…IT’S ALL ABOUT THE CARS!
In the end, a Good Guys Show, like any car show, is all about the cars. And they had hundreds and hundreds of them to eyeball and admire. These are just a few. Check out our Events Page for the next Good Guys Show or go to Good-Guys.com.
