    not sure about other goodguys shows. I've heard rumors that goodguys may possibly change the year requirements on vehicles in the future. this looks like a step in doing so. they have started to realize that the pre 72 vehicles are becoming more and more hard to find and more and more priced out of the average persons wallet. pre 90s vehicles are becoming more popular for this reason. younger generations just cant find or afford to go buy and build a tri-fi chevy or 69 z28. goodguys recognizing squarebody trucks is a step in the right direction and I'm super excited about it.

    Rust...yeah it exists here. We see plenty of rusted out cars coming here from Illinois and even some from the great white North. Most residents here are originally from the MidWest or East coast. Unfortunately. ...some still migrate here from California..:yucky:

    The Columbus event has always been a little lenient on the year regulations. There have been at least a few mid 70's C10's in the shows. And they say exactly that on the window info card, "70's C-10".

    And I thought it was only for American vehicles too, but there's always several VW's in the show.
