Good Guys Rod and Custom Association is sponsoring nineteen car shows all across the U.S. this year, from March through November. Regardless of location, these events follow a similar agenda, all being three day events with thousands of cars on display, auto-cross races, swap meets, award ceremonies, among other regional events and entertainment.
While a fortunate few can spare the time to attend Good Guys shows for all three days, most people attend on Saturdays, when the largest number of cars are available for viewing. However, if you miss Good Guys on Sunday, you’re missing out on a lot. On Sundays, Good Guys lifts its cut-off year of 1972 and older only vehicles, allowing all years of American-made and/or American powered vehicles to be entered and displayed. The Sunday event is appropriately named “All American Sunday.” It brings out a lot of late model Mustangs, Corvettes, Chargers, Challengers and Vipers. Sunday morning there is a Rodder’s Church Service, followed by the preacher’s pick of his or her favorite vehicle at Good Guys.
Sunday wraps up the three day Good Guys Event with an Awards Show on Sunday afternoon, recognizing the stand-out cars and trucks at the event. The judging is done by a variety of Good Guys staff, industry executives and media representatives. If you can only spare one day to attend Good Guys, Sunday will let you see the very best, award winning vehicles. Among the sixty-plus award categories at the Colorado 17th Good Guys Nationals were Cool Corvette, Ford Muscle, Homebuilt Heaven, Hottest Hotrod, Period Perfect, Memory Lane and Wonderful Woody.
