The planning of my summer schedule is in full swing. I'm always on the hunt for new and different shows to cover for you, as well as making plans to visit the tried, true and awesome shows I've been to in summers past. There is one show that has been missing from my lineup and wish like heck would come back. I'm talking about the GoodGuys Nostalgia NAts show that they used to hold at Beech Bend Park in BOwling Green, KY. It was such a great event. It was all the "good" things you can expect at a GoodGuys but add to that vintage drag racing only paces away from the show cars. Walking around a car show with the soundtrack of live racing going on, it jsut doenn't get any better. This is my plea to the wonderful folks at GoodGuys Rod and Custom Association, Please Bring Back TheNostalgia Nationals
I've used a little technology to create a time machine. Although this video was shot in 2010 it looks like could have be 40 years old, it's just how Beech Bend is. The place is straight out of "the day."
It goes without saying that awesome rides are going to show up at a GoodGuys event but Beech Bend seemed to really bring them out. We saw that amazing carbon fiber Vette from Hearltnad Customs ans wella s the show stopping Peterbilt "Gizmones' at this great show, not to mention the other 3,000 or so other rides that were out in their finest.
There is pleanty of racing action that goes on at Beech Bench park all season long, they even host the NHRA Hot ROd Reuntion but , which I'm planning on attending, it's just not the same thoughta dn I wish GoodGuys would bring the Nostalgia Nats back!You can see why I am waxing poetically about this show and wish it would start u again. So, if you feel like it drop GoodGuys a line and let them know there are more and more of us that want the Nostalgia Nats to come back to Bowling Green and Beech Bend Park.
Til the next time - Keep on Kruzin!
