Nashville Good Guys 2012 Photos

We just returned from opening day of Good Guys in Nashville and have to tell you I was very disappointed and left mid-afternoon. I am not sure what Saturday will bring but Friday’s attendance was down 50% (my estimate) from last year. Not only were there large grass empty spaces but it appeared that 90% of the people walking around and looking at cars were people with cars on display!

I don’t know if it the price of gas or the economy as a whole or just bad timing but this was the least attendance I have ever seen at a Nashville Good Guys Show.

Here are our picks of most interesting cars from Friday. More to come for Saturday.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at www.TalladegaSpoilerRegistry.com site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys.

  1. Hello,

    I noticed that you have the AMX out. It looks great. I am pleased that you used the Magnum 500 chrome wheels.

    I also noticed that the right hand outside mirror is placed back on the door to match the left hand one. AMC placed the right hand mirror forward on the door as you saw when you purchased the car from me. I know that its a little late to place it now but it would allow you in the driver’s seat to use it to better advantage.

  2. I will be doing a more indepth article on the car in the very near future. The mirror was a real challenge. There were a number of holes in the door and was not sure where it should go. I contacted a AMC AMX parts supplier and was given the factory template for the mirror holes. I wish I would have put it back where it was becasue in its current location it is worthless!
