The annual Goodguys Del Mar Cruise is back bigger and better this year as we head from Northern California to Southern California in advance of the Goodguys 13th Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals! The cruise will depart Goodguys Headquarters in Pleasanton Wednesday, April 3rd @ 8:30am arriving in Del Mar the next afternoon. The cruise focuses on California’s Central Valley this year as well as the Inland Empire region of Southern California with stops at hot rod shops and exclusive private collections as well as the NHRA Motorsports Museum! A hot rod cruise is a great way to spend a few days on the road bonding and kicking tires with fellow hot rodders!
There’s room for whoever wants to come along so please join us and have some fun with your rod, custom or muscle car! All cruisers are responsible for making their hotel reservation for Wednesday night April 3rd. The cruisers will be staying the night on 4/3 at the Radisson Hotel in Covina, CA (1211 E Garvey St, Covina , Ca 91724 866-257-5990). Make sure and ask for the Goodguys rate!
