Spokane GOODGUYS - Great Show Keeps Getting Better!

By Jerry Brenner

I've been going to this show every year for the past 16 years and I'm here to say, "this is a great show" for any number of reasons, ie., you'll always see old friends and make new ones, you'll be treated to an eclectic field of more than 1,300 examples of automotive eye candy, 1972 and older. What I'm talking about, as you know, is the 16th annual GOODGUYS Great Northwest Nationals which happened August 18-20, 2017 at the Spokane County Fairgrounds and Expo Center. I should also mention that beginning 2018 the GOODGUYS Sunday show will be open to all makes, models and years. Certainly should be interesting.

The fun/action opens on Thursday with a Poker Run and participants drawing a card at eight hot rod shops around the Spokane Valley. Friday featured registration and an evening "Kick Off Party" in the parking lot of the Mirabeau Park Hotel where all participants were invited to mingle and get to know one another while live music played in the background.

Saturday was/is the big day as the judging goes on and the crowd checks out the many vendors as well as the Swap Meet and the "For Sale" Car Corral. A personal highlight was meeting drag race driver/builder Jerry "the King" Ruth, on hand and "cacklin'" his nitro rail.Check it out in 2018!
