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.

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.
