Today's the final day of the the Goodguys 29th West Coast Nationals hot rod and custom car show, which is at the Alameda County Fairgrounds for a three-day run.

Featuring more than 3,000 hot rods, customs, classics, street rods and muscle cars of 1972 vintage and earlier, the show also includes vendor exhibits by more than 300 performance automotive companies. They are exhibiting products and holding demonstrations throughout the show with manufacturer representatives on hand to give tips, talk about trends and sell automotive related products at special prices.

In addition to the acres of vintage vehicles, the event is showcasing swap meets and a cars-for-sale area by Auto Trader Classics.

Also at the show will be Lil' deuce coupes, hot rod roadsters, chopped Mercury customs, Hemi Cuda's, Six Pack Challengers, Boss 429 Mustangs, Pontiac GTO's and many other types of specialty vehicles.

The Bay Area Roadsters, organized in 1959 by Don Brusseau, will be honored at the show with club members' cars and memorabilia on display inside a special parking area at Windmill Hill near the clock tower.

The Goodguys 2015 Flowmaster award for America's most beautiful street rod will be one of 12 awards selected on Saturday in the Builder's Choice area. To be eligible for this award, the vehicle must be through a 1948 vintage or earlier.

The Goodguys show, presented by Flowmaster, will be open today from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

General admission is $20, youths (7-12) $6, and 6 and under are free. There is a $10 parking fee charged by the Alameda County Fairgrounds.
