If you’re into hot rods, classics, or custom cars, you have no doubt attended at least one Goodguys event during the last 20 years or so. If you live in the Northeast part of the country, then there is one about to fill your weekend with excitement. This year sees the 26th Annual Goodguys East Coast Nationals taking place in Rhinebeck, New York, on June 8 and 9.

The Goodguys East Coast Nationals is a huge gathering of gearheads that typically sees more than 1,500 hot rods, customs, classics, street rods, muscle cars, and hot rod trucks spread throughout the show grounds of the Duchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck. In addition to feasting your eyes at both the indoor and outdoor portions of the car show, the event includes vendor exhibits, a swap meet, cars-for-sale area, special “themed” parking areas for different types/styles/categories of vehicles, the hugely popular Goodguys Autocross, a model car show, and so much more.


Hot rods and classics will fill the event.

Saturday’s specialty parking areas will feature: Trick Truck Corral, Mighty Muscle, Cool Camaro, Ya Gotta Drive ‘Em, Goodguys Builder’s Choice, Young Guys, Homebuilt Heaven, Deuce Doins, Tri-Five Chevy Corral, and for our friends from the North, the Canadian Corral

Make your plans now, as the weekend is fast approaching, and you definitely don’t want to miss this event spectacular. Check out Goodguys for all the information regarding this and other event happenings around the country. You will be glad you did.
