Looking ahead…25th West Coast Nationals!

It’s hard to believe, but next August will mark the 25th anniversary of the Goodguys West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton! The event will take place the weekend of August 26-28 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds as it has since 1987. As you can imagine, it’s going to be a big celebration! The annual Hot Rod Week tour will precede the event beginning on Monday, August 22nd (Hot Rod Week schedule will be released this spring).

We wanted to give everyone a heads up that throughout the weekend in Pleasanton we’ll be doing some fun West Coast Nationals trivia contests as we celebrate the event’s silver anniversary. Now might be a good time to dig out your 1st annual West Coast Nationals event shirts, hats, souvenir steins, window stickers or anything else that you’ve saved since that first year and set it aside so you can bring it with you this August.

If you have a particular story you’d like to share about your journey to that first West Coast Nationals way back when, we’d love to hear them and might even publish some of them right here on Hot News!
