Our first stop of the weekend was actually on Thursday night before the show started. Our good friend John Bedell, owner of Bedell Hot Rods always hosts an open house before the show. The CCC Crew and I got to visit his growing facility and see some great cars. Big thanks to everyone at Bedell Hot Rods for the hospitality.

Goodguys Auto Cross was a big hit at the show. The Auto Cross lets car owners will track ready cars take a few laps on the sectioned off road course at the show. It also showcased the event sponsors track cars in a Sponsors Shoot Out. The Auto Cross was set up across the street from the California Car Cover booth, so we listened to the screeching tires and roaring engines all weekend.

Saturday was the big day of the weekend. Plenty of cars starting cruising in first thing in the morning. In fact, plenty of cars were already parked before we even arrived at the show (& we were there pretty early).

|This Valiant is a definite sleeper. A little rough on the outside, but has a serious engine under the hood. Notice the Pissed Off badges.|

After checking out the beautiful cars in contention for some awards, I hopped on the Sky Ride to get some photos from above the car show.
All-American Cruise-in takes place on Sundays at most Goodguys events. This opens the show to all American made or powered vehicles, so there are many newer cars and trucks at the event.

Thanks to everyone at Goodguys for a great event in Columbus. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
