Good Guys West Coast Nationals

  • Alameda County Fairgrounds 4501 Pleasanton Avenue Pleasanton, CA, 94566 United States (map)

A “bucket list” destination of hot rodders across the country, this year’s 30th Anniversary of the Goodguys West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster is scheduled to take place the weekend of August 26-28 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, CA and it promises to be better than ever! 

Festivities for registered participants kick-off on Monday 8/22 with Hot Rod Week – four days of guided tours in and around the Bay Area visiting automotive collections, rod shops and other interesting places! Known as the “Crown Jewel” of all Goodguys events, the West Coast Nationals is the perfect blend of old school traditions and new school trends and it’s reflected in over 3,000 of America’s finest 1972 & older show-quality hot rods, customs, muscle cars, trucks and classics on display throughout the majestic Alameda County Fairgrounds. 

This big event also includes over 300 Vendor Exhibits, a huge Swap Meet & Cars 4 Sale Corral, Live Music Entertainment, Nitro Thunderfest Dragster Exhibition, Craft Beer Garden, Nightly Parties, a Model Car Show, Mini Engine Exhibit, a FREE Kids Zone and so much more! And, you don’t want to miss the crowning of the 2016 Goodguys America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod Award!
