Pacific Sized Prizes and Parts in Puyallup

There is always a lot to take in during the Goodguys Griot’s Garage Pacific Northwest Nationals, coming up July 28 – 30 in Puyallup, Washington. There are thousands of classic cars and trucks to see, the Friday night drags, Saturday’s burnout competition, the nitro-burning Thunderfest, Builders Choice and special parking areas plus the Brush Bash for pinstriped art! It’s also a great place to find parts and components for your project – new or old!

Manufactures, vendors and builders line the cruise lanes around the Washington State Fair Event Center showcasing their latest parts that are staffed with their company techs that to help answer your questions or with a product recommendation. Chassis, crate engines, shop equipment, tools and wheels are just a few of the parts you’ll find during the show and if you’re in search of a used part or collectible, head towards the giant slide where you’ll find the Swap Meet and Cars-4-Sale Corral.

For show participants, be sure to check in with the Choice Product Giveaway booth each day located in the Southeast corner of the main ShowPlex building as our volunteer Rodders Reps draw prize tickets at 10am, noon and 2pm on Friday and Saturday, and at 10am and 1pm on Sunday. There are over 30 different great prizes given away over the weekend including a $1,000 coupon towards a suspension or chassis from Total Cost Involved or a set of Schott Wheels while Advanced Plating provides a $300 certificate towards plating and many more.
