We have kind of a love/hate relationship with the Goodguys. Yes, their shows bring in some of the nicest rods around. Yes, we've had friends who work for them. And yes, when you go to the West Coast Nationals at Pleasanton, you're likely to run into a lot of pals you may only see a couple of times a year. Of course, they have their vintage drag racing series as well, and we loves us some vintage drag racing. Conversely, the show area's also rife with bad music, bad fashion, and some of the gawdawfulest hot-rod atrocities you've ever seen. Still, founder Gary Meadors hasn't done bad for a farm kid from the Central Valley. We just wish we still had that picture we took of him checking his fly.
