GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW- MARCH 2016 KICKS OFF THE YEAR
The Good Guys kicked off their year in Pleasanton CA with the 34th All American Get-Together on Saturday & Sunday, March 19 & 20, 2016. The weather was perfect, the cars were out in force, and the people were smiling. What a weekend!!
LOTS TO SEE AT THE GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-MARCH 2016
The weekend got started with the Pledge of Allegiance over the PA system, with virtually everyone standing with hand-on-heart. Above is the Honor Guard dressed in Revolutionary War regalia and some green for St. Patrick’s Day.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-MARCH 2016 SWAP MEET
As usual, there was a lively and extensive swap meet at the show. Lots and lots of booths with tons of cool, hard-to-find stuff.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW- MARCH 2016 CAR CORRAL
And as usual, there were hundreds of awesome cars for sale. Classics, customs, muscle cars, oldies, low riders, hot rods, race cars, pimp cars, you name it! And there were some real deals to be had.
GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-MARCH 2016 VENDORS
These shows are loaded with vendors of every sort selling everything you can imagine to complete your hot rod, restoration project or race car. But that’s just the beginning. You can find nearly anything even remotely related to cars, even some things that aren’t, and lots of things you won’t find anywhere else.
CAR CLUBS JOIN THE GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-MARCH 2016
One of my favorite things about the Good Guys Car Shows at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton CA is how nice the fairgrounds are. They’re big and spread out, green and well-manicured, with tons of shade and lots of nooks and crannies where you might find a gaggle of modern Corvettes, or old pickups, or low riders, or just maybe some Foci or 90s-era Impala SS’s.
So, let’s see some cars, already!!
MODERN MUSCLE AT THE GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW-MARCH 2016

BELOW: 2000 Chevy Camaro SS.
ABOVE: This 2002 Trans Am is reputed to be the last Trans Am every made.
BELOW: 1998 Corvette.
ABOVE: The look of new muscle: 2016 Shelby GT350.

DON’T MISS THE NEXT GOOD GUYS CAR SHOW
There were literally too many gorgeous cars to look at! Is that even possible? If you go the a Good Guys Car Show, you may think so. But what a way to go!! You’ll be in Car Guy Heaven, like me, every time I go to one of these Good Guys Shows. They are scheduled all over the country, throughout the year. The Pleasanton Show, which is the one I usually attend in the San Francisco Bay Area, does four shows a year. Again, I’m in heaven. Check out our Classic Car Shows-page for all the dates and locations. Or go to their website at good-guys.com for more info. And maybe I’ll see you at the next Good Guys Car Show.
