The Ohio Expo Center was jam packed with car buffs hot rod enthusiasts alike July 13-15 at the 10th Annual Goodguys Nationals. Approximately 7,000 rods, classics, street machines, custom cars and muscle cars from 1972 and earlier filled the fairgrounds from as far away as Ontario and California for this national summer event. Pictured here, a 1937 OZE Coupe from Kentucky.
Although the Goodguys Nationals brought in participants from across the country and beyond, there was no mistaking what city you were in as everyone stopped in their tracks to check out this old-time car decked out from bumper to bumper in Buckeye decor.
Flame on! This 1954 Chevy Pickup, cherry red and burning hot, made the long trip from Pennsylvania.
You wouldn’t want to come face to face this mean ride on the street. This 1969 hails from North Carolina.
Not everyone had a long drive to the fairgrounds – hometown pride was in the air as visitors stopped to check out this sweet ride, a 1970 Chevelle owned by Dave Kraft of Hilliard.
