If you live in the Northwest portion of this great country and you unfortunately missed the Goodguys Pacific Northwest Nationals, the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association has not left your area. Make plans now for the weekend of August 17 through 19, as they are calling all inland Northwest and Canadian hot rodders to join them in a convergence on the Spokane County Fair and Expo Center in Spokane, Washington, for the Great Northwest Nationals.
This event promises to be a fun and festive family-style hot roddin’ weekend to remember, with an expected 1,500 – or more of the Northwest and Canada’s coolest street rods, customs, and classics cars built through 1987. Plus, if you’re looking for parts, there will be vendors, a great swap meet, and even a car corral. But wait, there’s more.
Throughout the weekend, there will be live entertainment, arts and crafts, a model car and pedal car show, valve cover races, and an untold amount of fun for the entire family. Don’t miss out on one of the West’s best hot rod and custom events!
Kick off the Goodguys’ weekend with Thursday’s Hot Rod Cruise! The cruise departs the fairgrounds at 11:00 a.m., and maps will be available at registration. Like many other Goodguys events, the Great Northwest Nationals will feature the Spectre Performance All-American Sunday, held on August 20th, so bring out those late-model, American-made rides, and join the fun!
