The Good Guys Rod and Custom Show rolled into Columbus, Ohio this week. This is the largest car show of its kind and the 20th year of the Columbus show.
The show is for vehicles 1972 and older. Even though the Cutlass wasn’t entered into the show, it was eligible for VIP parking.
The Good Guys Show brings out some the wildest creations. One of the first cars I saw upon entering was this ride named the Corvonda. It was a Corvair with a Honda Civic drivetrain and interior.
I also saw a legit 1969 Yenko Camaro. This is the kind of car you see at Mecum Auction going for big bucks.
One of my favorite attractions at the show is the auto cross competition. There is nothing like seeing these rides being driven hard by some of the best drivers and builders.
Some of the auto cross cars looked fast while parked.
There were so many nice cars at the show. The event is held at the Ohio State Fairgrounds which transforms into a CARnival for the week.
The top builders from around the country bring their best to compete for Hot Rod of the Year and other top honors.
One of the most over the top builds was this 1949 Chevy pickup truck named Heirloom. The paint and interior finishes were perfect. It even had leather wrapped hoses on the engine bay next to the supercharger.
Some vehicles can’t be described. I can show you better than I can tell you.
This Mercedes seemed a bit out of place, but no one could deny its cool factor.
Here are a few other top builders competition cars.
