Saturday Scenes from the 37th All American Get-Together

It feels good to be back in our hometown for the 37th running of the All American Get Together this weekend, and the hometown crowd rolled out in full force! The Alameda County Fairgrounds was jammed packed starting at 8am and we can’t help but thank Mother Nature for treating us to phenomenal weather this weekend.

Highlighted by the competition for the Goodguys 2019 Custom of the Year title, the All American Get Together welcomes all years of American-made or American-powered rides, ranging from early highboy hot rods to slammed modern muscle machines. But customs are king this weekend and two indoor buildings are stuffed with customs and lowriders to showcase the rolling artwork they represent. The lowriders were also front and center for our first lowrider hopping exhibition, which drew a huge crowd!

More than 2,000 hot rods, customs, classics, and muscle cars packed the place, making parking a premium and ensuring big crowds for show features like the Nitro Thunderfest vintage dragster exhibition, a wild Burnout Contest, massive swap meet, and AutoCross racing. A Goodgals Gallery, plenty of activities for kids, and tons of industry-leading vendors just added to the excitement.

We’re throttle-down for the rest of the weekend with anticipation of the Custom of the Year title being awarded tomorrow. Until then, check out some scenes from today!
