In the 1930’s the rich and famous went to the Del Mar Fairgrounds to bet on the horses and get away from Hollywood! But when you mention Del Mar to hot rod guys and gals they know that the Goodguys are in town putting on one of their biggest cruise and car shows on the West Coast, drawing cars from all over the good old U.S.A. Even with the big Mopar drag race and car show at the Strip in Las Vegas the same weekend there were plenty of Chrysler, Dodge and Plymouth hot rods and muscle cars in Del Mar.
