Over the weekend, we made our way across the San Francisco Bay to Pleasanton, California, for the Goodguys West Coast Nationals. Now in its 32nd year, the event brings a wide variety of rods, customs and street machines to the Alameda County Fairgrounds for three exciting days of show and shine.

Just like in years past, we had our fully stocked Rodder’s Journal booth set up in the Young California building. We enjoyed catching up with old friends, making new ones and hearing about your latest projects. Throughout the weekend, we cruised around the fairgrounds checking out one of the best batches of cars we’ve seen in Pleasanton in quite some time. From pre-war hot rods to nose-up Gassers, there was a great mix of machines at the West Coast Nationals. In addition to the cars, we also enjoyed the swap meet, autocross competition, as well as the miniature engine display. (Click here to see a 1/4-scale supercharged smallblock Chevy roar to life!)

With warm weather and cool cars, this weekend was one for the books. Here are some highlights.
