We’re expecting more than 2,000 hot rods, cool customs, vintage trucks, muscle cars, classics, and other cool rides throughout the weekend, with a huge indoor display of cars to complement the thousands outside. Beyond the fine rides, we’ll send an echo through the hills with a triple shot of our Nitro Thunderfest exhibitions – one on Friday and two on Saturday – plus a smokin’ Burnout Competition at 12:30 on Saturday. Add in Goodguys AutoCross action all weekend and there will be plenty of kinetic energy throughout the grounds!

Need parts? The huge vendor midway will have plenty of shopping options, and there will be bargains galore in the swap meet and car corral. The Goodgals Gallery will add to the variety with a selection of crafts, clothing, and other fun stuff. Speaking of fun, the Kids Zone will have games and crafts, and we’ll also have a great display of model cars and pedal cars. Kids can even build their own models during the Make N Take Saturday at 1pm or Sunday at 11am! Add in some live music, and we’re going to have a rockin’ time!
