Eye Candy: Goodguys Spring Nationals

Photos by Larry Edsall

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association opened its 2014 calendar with its 5th annual Spring Nationals at the WestWorld complex in Scottsdale, Ariz., where more than 2,400 cars were on display.

The three-day event was both show and go as it included the opening round of the Goodguys AutoCross, a timed run through a cone-defined race track on the pavement up on the hill above the polo fields where most of the cars were displayed.

Actually, the Spring Nationals were a four-day event with some 300 early arrivals taking part in a tour Thursday of half a dozen Phoenix-area custom car and hot rod shops.

The Goodguys tour around the country resumes March 14-15 with the 4th Spring Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth. The 32nd annual All American Get-Together is scheduled March 29-30 in the Goodguys’ home town — Pleasanton, Calif.

As usual, the Goodguys wrap up their tour back in Scottsdale in November, this year for the 17th Southwest Nationals.
