He says car owners will be cruising to Des Moines from all over the U-S to take part in this national event and to try and win the “Custom Rod of the Year” award from Good Guys. Cars from 1949 through 1964 are vintage.Hours today are from 8-to-8 and tomorrow from 8-to-3. For more details, surf to “www.good-guys.com” or call (925) 838-9876.
