35th All American Get-Together

Goodguys car show taking over fairgrounds next weekend

by Jeremy Walsh

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is set to kick off its 2017 show season with the 35th All American Get-Together next weekend at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton.

Customs will be the lead theme of the two days, with a Custom of the Year competition, a custom motorcycle show and a custom low-rider exhibit among the highlights of the event.

In all, more than 3,000 candy-colored and chromed hot rods, customs, classics, muscle cars and trucks of all years will fill acres of the fairgrounds for a weekend dedicated to American-made and American-powered vehicles, organizers said.

Running on March 25 and 26, the event will also feature vendor exhibits, a large swap meet, cars-for-sale corral, Nitro Thunderfest dragster exhibition, live music, Goodguys AutoCross racing, a kids zone and more.

Among the highlights will be the indoor display of custom cars as part of the 2017 Custom of the Year competition. The award is open to vehicles made from 1936 to 1972 and allows for all styles and genres, from traditional to modern to radical, organizers said.

As part of the custom motorcycle show, Arlen Ness Motorcycles will be on hand with 15 to 20 of their choppers and bikes, as will Ken Reister's newly crowned "America's Most Beautiful Motorcycle" fresh off the Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona in January.

A low-rider display, presented by Deadend Magazine, will bring together a slick selection of low-riders, as part of the magazine's effort to bring its pages to life during the event, organizers said.

The Goodguys 35th All American Get-Together gates will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 25 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 26.

General admission costs $20, kids (7-12) are $6, and youngsters 6 and under are free. Fairgrounds parking is $10. Active or retired military receive $5 off their general admission with valid military ID card. General admission tickets are available online for a discounted price of $17 through midnight next Friday (March 24).
