The Goodguys 33rd West Coast Nationals presented by BASF gathers together more than 3,500 hot rods, street rods, customs, muscle cars and trucks for a three-day celebration at the Alameda County Fairgrounds on August 23-25.

Highlights include BASF America’s Most Beautiful Street Rod award, Goodguys AutoCross racing, and Spectre Performance All-American Sunday. Event attendees can enjoy food booths, musical entertainment, a kids’ zone, and a midway featuring multi-million-dollar custom big rig tractor trailers (a show in and of themselves) offering high-performance parts and accessories to budding hot rodders and do-it-yourselfers. Add to that three buildings of indoor commercial vendors with the chance to interact directly with manufacturers, and a giant used car parts swap meet and car corral.
