I really love the Goodguys Shows, they really have grown over the years to be a smoothly run and fun event from a spectator perspective. Googduys autocross is immensely popular and always draws a crowd; while I wish I could watch it more and get some shots of the cars in action there just isn’t enough time in the day. I often wonder, where do all these amazing cars come from? There are a lot of enthusiasts in the valley and I love to see the cars that I have seen before as well as the new ones that cycle through.
After 2.5 batteries (thanks to the folks in the Detroit Speed booth for letting me use your power plug) and 2153 shots I called it a day. I didn’t get shots of all the cars that I wanted to (sorry Widow, camera died again before I could get shots of the ‘Cuda and T-Bird) I think that I got some decent shots. Rolled the dice and shot the show with my new Nikon 12-24, hopefully they turn out well or I’ll be kicking myself.
With a recent win of the Goodguys Hot Rod of the Year award, this beautiful ’34 Ford Coupe is getting a lot of attention. Build by FastLane Rod Shop from Donahue, Iowa, this Hugger Orange hot rod looks and drives well. The body came from Steve’s Auto Restoration from Portland, OR and was further honed by FastLane Rod Shop. They placed the body over a custom-build chassis with JRI Shocks and So-Cal Brakes and 15″ Kidney Bean fronts and 16″ Big Window wheels in the rear from Real Rodders. At the heart of the beast, they dropped in a thoroughly worked ’65 425CI Buick Nailhead from Russel Martin from Centerville Auto Repair outfitted with Hilborn Injection, Custom Headers and fully prepped for show and go. The interior is on point with custom touches everywhere. It is no wonder why this beautiful ride received the Hot Rod of the Year award and I am glad that I got a chance to shoot it!

I first saw this beautiful truck at SEMA 2013, I took some pics but the lighting wasn’t that great and I wasn’t thrilled with the pictures. I was glad to walk out of the tent at the Goodguys 16th Southwest nationals and have another opportunity to shoot this amazing truck.
Hot Rod Garage from Sand Springs, OK put together this stunning ride with help from Chuck Rowland Interiors, One of a kind custom gauges, many custom pieces machined by Greening Auto Company and put a 540ci Big Block with custom electronic Crowder Injection. This truck took home a Mother’s Choice Award @ the SEMA 2013, was voted top 10 of over 2400 cars and also won the title of Goodguys truck of the year. Much respect to the owner of this badboy and all those who had a hand in making this thing come to life!
