-The Bay Area Engine Modelers exhibit is a MUST SEE!

-The Bay Area Engine Modelers exhibit is a MUST SEE!

Two extra cool specialty exhibits are planned for the Goodguys 28th West Coast Nationals presented by Flowmaster August 22-24 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds.

Making their annual pilgrimage to the event will be the Bay Area Model Engine Club. These masterful engineers and their mind-boggling scale model engines always manage to outdo themselves, creating new and exciting displays every year! Located inside the Agriculture building all weekend, this year’s exhibit includes some fantastic remote control army tanks (it’s an interactive exhibit so the kids can operate the tanks!) an all-new exhibit of hand-made remote control boats as well as an all new sculpture from artist Michael Cooper.

Over 70 modelers will participate.

While the mini engine show is thrilling fans, a gathering of Land Speed cars will gather to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bonneville Salt Flats! Located at the Clock Tower in the center of the fairgrounds, the Land Speed exhibit will feature 2 streamliner’s (including Dennis Varni’s 345mph “909” car), several door cars (including Jerry Kugel’s 300mph Firebird, John Batto’s & Pat McClendon’s) and Tom & John Walsh’s record-holding 333 roadster.

Joining the Land Speed cars will be Bonneville 200mph Club President Don Warner who will be on hand to answer fans’ questions about how to get involved in land speed racing and share insights on 200mph Club history, membership and more.

Make sure and put these two exhibits on your “must see” lists when you’re visiting the 28th West Coast Nationals! Need to register your pre-’73 show car? Click here!
