Video: Goodguys All American Get-Together Video Rewind

Goodguys Rod and Custom Association shared a music video, shot and edited by the award-winning short film crew from Route 2 Media, that captures much of the sights and sounds of the Goodguys Rod and Custom Association event season. The video presented captures the 30th All American Get-Together in Pleasanton, California.

The video is detailed that you can turn the sound up, close your eyes, and almost smell the gasoline in the air.

Mother Nature contributed by presenting the typical California Spring weather with overcast sky and cool ocean air blowing through the area. As you can tell by the video, the weather did little to stop the car enthusiasts as they showed up in volume to see the participant cars shine through the overcast sky. No one was concerned with precipitation because everyone knows; it never rains in California.
