Thank You, Veterans!

Every year Goodguys thanks our nation’s Veterans for their sacrifice, bravery, and service to our country at the Autumn Get Together. It’s a fitting time to recognize both Veterans and current service members, as this event is held annually during the second weekend of November, just as the country celebrates Veterans Day. Although COVID restrictions have postponed the Autumn Get Together in 2020, acknowledging our Veterans and their families remains a top priority at Goodguys.Veterans Day

Veterans Day


Veterans played a key role in hot rodding as we know it today. After coming home from World War II, veterans and returning GIs put the knowledge they gained in the military and the war to use on building hopped-up cars for dry lakes racing and other performance endeavors. We’re happy to see that tradition continues, as we see many Veterans who are active in the hot rod hobby today.

Veterans Day

From all of us at Goodguys, we cannot say it enough: Happy Veterans Day to our soldiers, both past and present. We owe you our thanks, but more than that, we owe you our freedom.

Steven is the grandson to the legendary Bob Bunker who piloted the green "Folsom Flash" 1955 Chevy from the 70's through the 90's. As a dragstrip kid, Steven started his automotive journalism path by photographing drag racing events and also building drag cars while working in his fathers shop. Since joining our team, Steven has grown leaps and bounds journalistically. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When Steven 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.
