Notice a few more custom cars cruising the streets of Pleasanton these days? They may be here for the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association's 30th annual All American Get-Together at the Alameda County Fairgrounds this weekend, one of the biggest custom car shows in the West.

To commemorate the event's 30 years and to help old-timers find the car they remember from 1983, Goodguys will hold "Flashback Sunday" with a special parking area for cars made in 1983 in honor of the event's first year. Hits from 1983 will play over the public address system, and Goodguys will reprint a limited number of T-shirts from the original event.

Gates will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, and the Goodguys AutoCross will run throughout the event. The awards ceremony is slated for 3 p.m. Sunday.

General admission is $17 for adults and $6 for ages 7-12. For more information visit or call 838-9876.

Zone 7 Water Agency is sponsoring a free Water-Wise Gardening Workshop from 10-11 a.m. tomorrow at Western Garden Nursery, 2756 Vineyard Ave. in Pleasanton. The event will cover ways to reduce water waste and pollution-causing practices, and still maintain a beautiful garden and yard.

To learn more, call 454-5015.

Need help with downloading e-Books from the library to your e-Reader, sending email attachments, social networking, blogging or do you have general questions about the Internet? The Pleasanton Library offers free Drop-In Computer Tutoring from 6-8 p.m. each Thursday evening. No registration is required.

Call the library reference desk at 931-3400, Press 7, with any questions. The library is located at 400 Old Bernal Ave.

Last week's story, "PUSD gives nod to early retirement buyout plan," should have said that Pleasanton has nearly $6.7 million in undesignated reserves; up to five retiring teachers per year can receive the district retirement award of $37,737 and they are not eligible for any health care benefits; others eligible for health benefits have coverage for 60-84 months or until age 65.
