Looking back on last weekend’s 12th Great Northwest Nationals, it’s a sure bet this Goodguys event is one of the area’s favorite summer time traditions! Thousands of inland Northwesterner’s flock to the Spokane Fair & Expo Center to get their rod & custom fix every year Goodguys comes to town. And they bring their kids! Saturday’s Revell Make & Take was overrun by enthusiastic kids, literally hundreds of them accepting their FREE models and building them right there at the tables!

Everything about the 12th Great Northwest Nationals was indeed great! The weather was a perfect 85 sun-soaked degrees all weekend, the quality of the cars was just as spectacular as the weather and the party vibe of the weekend carried on from Thursday’s Hot Rod Shop Tour through Sunday’s final awards ceremony!

Former Goodguys Trendsetter and internationally renowned hot rod builder JF Launier came down from Canada to select the Goodguys Builder’s Choice awards and managed to pick a spectacular array of rods, customs, muscle cars and trucks! The weekend was also highlighted by jumpin’ nightly parties at the nearby host hotel. The partying went on well into the night!

If you’re looking for a fun, laid back Goodguys weekend in beautiful surroundings, look no further than the Goodguys Great Northwest Nationals in Spokane! Hope to see you here next year!
