The 8th Spring Nationals kicked off the Goodguys 2017 event season in spectacular style with a record 2,500 cars flooding the grounds at Westworld in Scottsdale. Hot temps and clear skies brought out an equally impressive number of spectators and plenty of amazing cars. If the winner’s circle is any indication of the caliber of cars we can expect, it’s going to be a great year of Goodguys Goodtimes!

Before we arrived at Westworld, cruising got underway Thursday night. Our host club, the Over the Hill Gang, organized a fabulous Hot Rod Road Tour before ending up in Fountain Hills, where over a hundred hot rodders were treated to lunch by our final stop host, Mods For Rods.

The rest of the weekend was all about havin’ fun with cars! Friday was fast and furious and cruised late into the night thanks to our 2017 kickoff party hosted by Richard and the Brown’s Classic Autos crew. Excitement was at an all-time high with Saturday’s Specialty Parking areas including the Builder’s Choice area presented by All Ways Hot Rods. With a new year, comes the Goodguys Top 12 awards which brought out the west’s top cars and trucks. Have a look below to see who grabbed the season’s first finalist spots!

Sunday’s winner circle was filled with fine iron showcasing what’s new for 2017 while also offering a glimpse of hot rodding’s hottest trends. With 72-straight hours of full throttle fun, the entire weekend was a blur. Next stop, Texas Motor Speedway for the 7th Spring Lone Star Nationals! Until then, check out our gallery of award winners and some of our favorites from the weekend!
