Goodguys Rod & Custom Show 10-21-17 22 Oct 2017 15:55 #1

Hey Gang! Yesterday, Chris and I went over to Charlotte Motor Speedway to take in the Southeast Nationals Goodguys Rod & Custom show. What a beautiful day! Weather was perfect and the grounds were jammed with hot rods, customs and muscle cars. Here's a few photos I took, but this is only a small percentage of the cool rides that participated.

The Venue

















The "grass" near the finish line isn't real this time of year.



On to the rides!













Took this one for my wife.





For Rhino.



Inspiration for my '29 Roadster build.







This 32 valve mill looked right at home in the Ford.



There's something about red and black that trips my trigger.





For Babydoc



Shiny Nailhead!



This guy participated in the burnout contest, note the rubber flecks on the paint and lack of tread at the rear.





Smokin'!





Always nice to see a Ford in a Ford! :ohyeah





Hemi power works for me too.

Photography does not do this paint scheme justice.



For the Pup



:mpup

Cobrajet Mustang!





Inside the Kids Tent, the Make & Take was underway, along with a model car contest.



It was good to see all the kids with their finished cars. :salute

Looks just like my cousin's old ride. RIP Ricky T.



:drinks

Another one for Babydoc





Be cool, stay in school.



'53 Studebaker was powered by this behemoth, don't know why I didn't get the outside shot? :idonno



Leadsled



For Saul







:bgrin

The wooden speedboat was really beautiful, couldn't get a good photo angle however.









I really dug the lines of this sedan and the flames sealed the deal.



Not something you see everyday.



Fins!





More roadster inspiration.















Something tells me that one of these days, this will be a classic.



For Randy Ditton



Gearjammer?





Love the orange and the attitude. B)





You think one is shiny? You can see my hands in the upper left corner while I snapped the photo.





:rotf







Dig that crazy strap on rearview mirror!

ORANGE!



Well, that's the story, hope you enjoyed the ride.

That was back in the day when they actually changed body styles from year to year. :good

It always gets me going when I go to a car show,big or small. The Goodguys show in Des Moines was something I looked forward to back when.

Thank you for taking the time to share these photos!

irst off, your wife has great taste! I love vintage 'vettes more than Ferraris!


My father had one of these and never understood why people wanted to 'soup them up' but alas, it fell victim to my '67 Pontiac Firebird. :(


My back hurts thinking about how to get in!


Nice! Did you get to hear all their engines or were some only static exhibits?

Thanks again,
