I guess if we were going to sum up what we thought of this past season’s Goodguys 14th PPG Nationals in one word, it’d have to be “awesome.” Now, for those who are veterans of the event this is common knowledge, but for those that have yet to make the trip to the show (what are ya waitin’ for?), awesome is about the best one-word description we can think of.

Picture this: A great July weekend, the vast expanse and aura of the Ohio Expo Center, the typical fun-filled Goodguys mix of special features, and thousands of the coolest classic trucks, muscle cars, and street rods the country has ever seen. Sound too good to be true? Don’t bet on it! The Goodguys go well beyond the norm when it comes to hosting an event. Not only do they play host to a series of five CLASSIC TRUCKS Finest-Five picks. Their gatherings are renowned for offering attendees things like a huge manufacturer’s exhibits (both indoors and outdoors), massive swap meets and car corrals, model and pedal car displays, and a host of informative technical seminars hosted by a variety of industry professionals. Adding to the association’s standard (but far from typical) fair, the Columbus, Ohio, event allows the Goodguys to offer even more, like the ever popular and exciting Auto Cross competition. Not half bad, eh?

Sounds like the Goodguys PPG Nationals were a blast, doesn’t it? Well, it was! And if you missed it, you’ll just have to settle for a mix of event coverage and your pals rubbing in how much fun they had at the show. No matter, we’re sure that if you missed this past season’s event you’ll want to do your absolute best to make this year’s 15TH Goodguys PPG Nationals. CLASSIC TRUCKS will be there, and we’ll have our cameras in hand! So we’ll see ya then! CT
