Goodguys 11th Annual LoneStar Nationals -- Fort Worth

 

October 3,4,5  2003

 

Beautiful old cars, cars and then more cars.  That is what greeted us at this year's 11th Annual Goodguys LoneStar Nationals.  Each year, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association sponsors car shows and events all over the country.  They hold these events at various locations in different regions and one of the national events is held here in the State of Texas.  For the past decade, Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth has been home to the Goodguys LoneStar Nationals.  This event draws a large number of people and great quality old cars from all across the globe.  The setting is ideal as the cars are paraded through the tunnels and out to the infield of one of the biggest motor sports arenas in Texas.

 

           

           

 

Each year, this event grows and grows and this year was no exception.  There were somewhere in the range of 3,000 cars that were to be on hand for this event and a good crowd of spectators.  The event is held over several days with different events and activities scheduled for each day.  Some of the attractions including, live bands, swap meet, vendor displays, car show,  and even a time when the old cars were set out in groups to run the course around the oval.  As you walk around looking at the various assortment of cars, the roar of engines buzzes around as drivers from the Texas race team give rides around the oval track all during the event.

 

           

           

 

The weather was great all weekend for this event, until late Saturday night/early Sunday morning (final day of the event).  A massive rain and thunderstorm blew in during the night and dropped its share of water.  This discouraged a few from bringing their cars back out on Sunday, but the sky cleared and the cars came out again.  We were actually surprised and pleased to see the number of cars and their owners that braved the conditions to bring their cars back out and show them.  Just before the parade of the award winners began, the clouds let loose and sprinkled us again with some showers but it was still a fantastic time and a great event to get out and see some incredible old cars.

 

           

           

 

This event is definitely one that you don't want to miss out on.  It is a great opportunity to see some of the latest in ideas and resources for the old car restoration and hot rod hobby as well as an opportunity to hang out with a large group of other fellow hobbyists and meet and greet some of the biggest names in the old car and street rod scene.
