When the Goodguys West Coast Nationals rolls around at the end of August, the summer show season is far from over, but we really like being able to hit a national show not very far from home after months of traveling all over the United States.

After a summer on the road checking out the latest and greatest rods and customs from every other corner of the country, it's a treat to get back to the West Coast to see some of that famous Golden State iron. The Bay Area has always been the center of some of the greatest hot rods and customs--and it's Goodguys' home turf. Every August, Goodguys packs the Alameda County Fairgrounds with countless outstanding cars. Some are brand-new cars making a late-summer debut. Some are recent show-stoppers making the rounds of Goodguys shows, just like us. Others are old local favorites that have been making the pilgrimage to Pleasanton for decades. This time, we had the tough job of selecting a handful of these top-shelf rods and customs to receive R&C Top 10 awards. Those picks, along with a few others from the weekend, are presented on the following pages.
