Goodguys Fuel Curve Top 10 of 2020 – #1 Goodguys 1st Virtual Car Show Top 22

Editor’s Note: No matter how you look at it, 2020 was a year that nobody expected, nor wished for. Event postponements, cancellations, social distancing, and more had old car enthusiasts out of sorts. Our scene revolves around gathering at events and showing off with others. We’re a community, even if don’t live near each other.

Thankfully, hot rodding is all about overcoming obstacles and making things better. Goodguys and Fuel Curve worked hard in 2020 to cover the altered landscape of the vintage car and truck scene, bringing you fresh and creative content every week – over 400 stories in total. We’re using the last few days of the year to revisit the Top 10 stories of the year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back as we start to prepare for better times in 2021.

It is likely that we’ll be talking about the year 2020 and looking back on it for decades, much like the Y2K craze. It has been a crazy year…stressful…difficult…sad…challenging…you name it and that was 2020. Needless to say, we’re excited to put 2020 in the rear-view mirror and enter 2021 with a bit of optimism!

Sticking with an optimistic outlook is how we landed right here with the highest-viewed story on FuelCurve.com in 2020 – the Top 22 Awards Ceremony presented by Meguiar’s from Goodguys 1st Virtual Car Show. When the COVID-19 virus managed to shutdown the majority of the world back in March, Goodguys knew the springtime shows were in danger of being postponed or canceled. The team quickly got to work on organizing a Virtual Car Show experience to continue the Goodguys Goodtimes. On March 28th, Goodguys 1st Virtual Car Show took place and the participation was massive…worldwide to be exact.

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
