A colorful weekend of American cars and patriotism are on tap Saturday and
Sunday November 10 & 11 as the Goodguys present the 23rd Autumn Get-Together Presented by J Rockcliff Realtors. Over 2,500 classic hot rods, custom cars, muscle cars and more will take over the Alameda County Fairgrounds showcasing the exciting world of customized and restored cars.

Before the big weekend gets started at the fairgrounds, Goodguys will reach out to local veterans by taking a mini car show to the Livermore Veterans Hospital on Wednesday, November 7th to share classic cars and good cheer with retired US Military servicemen and women.

Long an ardent supporter of our U.S. Servicemen and women, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and Specialty Sales will honor the military with FREE SUNDAY ADMISSION to the show. All active and retired service men and women will be admitted to the Get-Together FOR FREE on Sunday, November 11th upon presentation of their military photo I.D. at the ticket gates.

The FREE ADMISSION is just part of a weeklong celebration honoring our U.S. veterans. It all kicks off Sunday, November 4th with the 16th annual Tri-Valley Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown Pleasanton in which Goodguys will participate. At the 23rd Autumn Get-Together, a special vintage military vehicle exhibit will be featured inside the Young California building and we’ll post the colors both Saturday and Sunday during special ceremonies. Collections will also
be taken at the event in support of Pleasanton Military Families Holiday “Pack-Out” packages (comfort and care supplies that go to overseas troops).

There will also be a special card signing for kids (located in the kids area) where they can send a note of thanks and holiday cheer to soldiers abroad. Topping it off will be an appearance by the Young American Patriots Fife and
Drum Corp – a group of grade schoolers decked out in colonial military costumes.

“All of us at Goodguys salute our military servicemen and women,” said Goodguys President Marc Meadors. “We’re honored to host our freedom fighters for the day at the 23rd Autumn Get-Together. Our founder, my father Gary Meadors served in the military and many of our members here and abroad are active military. We sincerely appreciate the sacrifices they make
every day for our freedom.”

There’s a lot more than cars to see at the event. A large swap meet with over 1,200 sellers will offer vintage auto parts. A special area full of kids games and activities will entertain the little ones as will the model car exhibit. Vendor exhibits will offer everything from vintage clothing and collectibles to auto parts and more. Festive music and all the culinary delights you can imagine will also be part of the big weekend. Finally, if high speeds and acceleration interest
you – the Goodguys AutoCross course will be hot all weekend featuring hundreds of cars racing around the course in 4 classes going for the quickest lap time. It’s all here at the 23rd Autumn Get-Together – the final Goodguys event of the year at the Fairgrounds!

The Goodguys 23rd Autumn Get-Together presented by J Rockcliff Realtors is open 8am-5pm Saturday and 8am to 4pm Sunday. General admission is $17, kids 7-12 $6. Kids 6 and under are FREE. All active and retired military are FREE on Sunday 11/10 with valid ID. Fairgrounds parking fee is $8. For additional event information, contact the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association at
