I was in Scottsdale over the weekend and thought I would cruise over to the Goodguys Southwest Nationals held at West World. The large classic car show attracted 1,000s of cars from all over the Southwest USA to Scottsdale for a few days in the desert. California Car Cover did not exhibit at this year's event, but I was in town over the weekend, so I spent a few hours at the show on Saturday.
Scottsdale is a great place to visit. With great weather and plenty to do at night, Scottsdale is a great town to visit just about all year long. Here are some of my favorite photos and vehicles from the show.
|This 1959 Chevy Brookwood Wagon attracted a lot of attention with its 454 engine, low stance and mint green paint.|
|This 1946 Ford Convertible was driven all the way to Scottsdale from South Dakota.|
This 1950 Cadillac Coupe de Ville was extra clean and included many modern upgrades.
|The 1966 Ford F-250 Camper Special is very clean, plus the matching tractor made this a pretty cool set up.|
|This two-tone 1970 Chevy Pickup packs a blown LS2 engine under the hood.|
Goodguys had special parking for many of the award winning cars. Popular cars, such as the Street Rod and Muscle Car of the Year were on display.

|Black on black Chevy Nova SS.|
The Goodguys Auto Cross always has a lot of high performance muscle cars. This shows you that a well built and drive muscle car isn't just limited to quarter mile speed. These cars can really move and handle.
|1972 Travelall dubbed The River Monster.|
Another rusty vehicle that attracted a lot of onlookers was this 1961 Willys Fleetvan FJ3 Postal Delivery truck. It was a little rough around the edges, but cool whether the owner keeps it as is or restores it.
|There were mostly Chevy and GMC trucks at the show, but this low 1968 Ford looked pretty good on the ground.|
|Looking for an extra extra long bed dually?|
|Blue sky in the custom blue paint.|
|Light blue paint and a white top looks good on this 1940 Chevy|
