The Annual Del Mar Nationals Car Show is rolling for 2023!

With all the COVID nonsense in the rearview mirror, things are getting back to normal.  And this year’s DMN looks to be firing on all cylinders.

With three full days, this car show is a must-attend event for any automotive enthusiast who hungers for hot rods.  Because the show is only open to 1987 vehicles and older.  Except for Sunday when all years are welcome – as long as it’s made it to the USA!

And they definitely check all the boxes when it comes to measuring motor-muscle.  Check out the list of features:

  • More than 2,500 vehicles – hot rods, customs, and muscle cars and trucks
  • Street Rod d’Elegance competition
  • Autocross competition
  • Burn out competition
  • Dragster competition

Plus they’ll have lots of engaging and entertaining activities for the kiddos.  And, of course, a swapmeet and ‘cars for sale corral.’

Dates: Friday, March 31st through Sunday April 2nd, 2023
Location: Del Mar Fairground, 2260 Jimmy Durante Boulevard, Del Mar, California, 92014
Spectator Admission: Varies
Vehicle Registration: Varies

So, pretty much nothing is free at the Del Mar Nationals Car Show.  That’s except for the smell of burning rubber and the glare of highly polished hot rods.  But, the Goodguys put on a great show so it’s totally worth it.
