There's one thing you may have noticed about Rod & Custom: We make the rounds. Just like many of you, we go to a lot of car shows. By the middle of the summer, we've been north, south, east, west, and central-walking the aisles, visiting the vendors, scouring the swap meets, eating the corn dogs, listening to the classic rock, talking to you guys, and checking out literally thousands of great rods and customs.

With so many Goodguys events to choose from every year, we try to break up the schedule from season to season. If we get to Des Moines, Indy, and Charlotte one year, then maybe we'll hit Nashville, Kansas City, and Spokane the year after.

There is one event, however, that we've been going to every single summer. It's the Goodguys PPG Nationals, held in July at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus.

Maybe it's the sheer number of cars that show up. Maybe it's the consistently high quality of those cars. Maybe it's the nightly parking lot parties at the headquarters hotel that are now a traditional part of this event. For whatever reason, Columbus is a high point in our summer-the hit of the season.

This year was no exception. Great cars and acres of 'em. As you'll see from these photos, especially from our Top Tin picks, the greatness isn't restricted to Fords and Chevys.

We'll be back in Columbus next summer. In the meantime, we've got these photos to remind us of the fun we had in 2007. Wanna see more? Visit the R&C Web site.
