There is no doubt that we all have a passion for our cars, and the Folks at Goodguys know that first hand. Throughout the year, they put on various events at various locations across the country, and the next one on the list is the 21st Goodguys PPG Nationals. The event is hosted at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, and typically features more than 6,500 musclecars, customs, classics, and trucks. The multi-day shindig also includes vendors and exhibitors, races, children’s activities, and so much fun for the entire family. We can hardly contain ourselves.
This is what many refer to as “The Big One”, as it is the biggest and best event of the year for fans of vintage cars and late-model American muscle. The weekend festivities also feature ground-pounding Goodguys Friday Night Vintage Drags at National Trail Raceway, a swap meet, the Cars 4 Sale Corral, the always-popular Goodguys AutoCross racing competition, and live stage shows.
If that’s not enough excitement to fill your weekend, You can also partake in one of the many how-to seminars, check out the model car show, find out which cars win the coveted Builder’s Choice awards, and finally, the crowning of the Street Machine and Street Rod of the Year. This is also one of the Goodguys events that will allow all late-model American-made or American-powered show cars entry to the event on Sunday!
