Lone Star State Host to Spectacular GoodGuys Event
For any true car enthusiast, the GoodGuys 21st Lone Star Nationals car show was a must see event. This show featured the best of the best and had something for everyone. The Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth was overrun by high shine paint jobs, throaty exhaust, and smiling faces from October 4th-6th by entries and fans alike.
During the pre-1972 only show days, Friday & Saturday (Sunday was open to all American made models and years), classic Chevy lovers got to see over 2,500 hot rods, perfectly restored/maintained classics, muscle cars, and classic trucks.
Here are some highlights from the event in case you missed it…
This awesome Chevelle SS was the epitome of muscle car as it took its spot in the show. Its intimidating stature and paint that shines only the way it can when its on an all metal body reminds us of a time when cars like this ruled the road.
What’s a car show without a shiny red first generation Corvette?
When this impressive C1 entered, crowds and photographers flocked to see the car that continues to inspire many to start collecting classic sports cars.
Chevy’s Bel Air is one of those cars that make you wish the full-size automobile was still around today. Even with its large size, the Bel Air always managed to remain elegant and well mannered.
A nice representation of the 5th generation of the Bel Air showed up in a very sharp black and red package on show day.
For those who appreciate subtly modified cars, this red Nova was a treat.
The most notable modification about this awesome Chevy is in the engine bay — the owner did an amazing job buttoning up this fuel injected engine to look like it belongs in the car, not to mention there’s not a wire or sensor in sight!
Another car show staple, the first generation Camaro, impressed spectators with its mix of original condition with a touch of customization — not to mention that powerful LS Chevy engine under the hood!
Truck enthusiasts weren’t let down at this GoodGuys show
…and this awesome black truck (and many, many more!).
There was also a nice selection of the more “modern classic” truck models.
Seeing this Chevy Cayenne reminds us that some of the trucks we used to see quite frequently on the roads are now moving into classic status — it really looked right at home amongst all of the other show vehicles there that day.
There was so much to be seen over the three days of show and shine, it would impossible to mention all of the awesome vehicles. This was such a great representation of the cars and trucks that inspired the whole enthusiasts’ movement.
