Celebrate the So-Cal Car Culture with Goodguys at the 23rd Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals presented by FiTech Fuel Injection

Del Mar Nationals

Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is bringing thousands of Cool Cars, Cool People and Good Times to the southern California coast for the 23rd Meguiar’s Del Mar Nationals presented by FiTech Fuel Injection. The event takes place over three days, April 5-7, 2024, at the scenic Del Mar Fairgrounds.

Thousands of regional customs, lowriders, street rods and classic trucks will fill the grounds to celebrate So-Cal’s diverse range of the automotive lifestyle and culture. There will be several special show areas including the PPG Lowrider Palace packed with chrome, brilliant paints, murals and detailed rides plus a new Suede and Chrome hall bustling with traditional hot rods, lakesters and highboys that formed the earliest days of hot rodding which all began in Southern California.
The country’s finest street rods will converge on Del Mar  with one earning the crown as the Goodguys 2024 Meguiar’s Street Rod d’Elegance, a coveted hot rodding award and a staple of the Goodguys Top 12 Awards program. Goodguys will also be choosing Finalists for their six regional Top 12 Awards including Custom Rod, Truck Early and Late, Muscle Machine, Custom and Muscle Car plus a special Builder’s Choice Top 10 selected by Streamline Custom Designs.
As America’s Favorite Car Show, Goodguys provides more fun for the entire family starting with the free Family Fun Zone, a model car show including a Model Car Make and Take and live music entertainment. On Saturday there is a lowrider hopping contest to see which rides can hop the highest plus the fury of the Nitro Thunderfest exhibition when vintage dragsters roar to life.
Racing also takes place all three days as skilled AutoCross drivers rip through cones and corners to qualify for the CPP Duel in Del Mar Shootout going down Saturday afternoon. If you’re looking for parts or even a new project, there is a swap meet and Cars 4-Sale Corral, as well as a Manufacturer’s Midway jam-packed with some of the nation’s biggest automotive companies.
And on Sunday, American-made or powered vehicles of all years are welcome to join the fun for Meguiar’s All-American Sunday.
