The brightwork experts at Advanced Plating are geared up and ready to host one of the best kickoff parties on the Goodguys calendar on Thursday, May 10! This is the official opening and “show before the show” that will help jump start the Goodguys 13th Nashville Nationals May 11-12 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

Festivities are planned from 4-8pm at Advanced Plating’s Nashville headquarters and will include live music, Nashville barbecue and Cajun cuisine. There will also be tours of the Advanced Plating facility so you’ll have a chance to see how all that gleaming chrome gets applied.

True to tradition, the party will also feature a variety of standout show vehicles, including four Great Eight Ridler Award finalists, an AMBR contender, a Goodguys Gold winner, and the recently crowned Street Rod d’Elegance winner. There will also be at least one debut car – and possibly more.

If you’re coming to the Nashville Nationals, you definitely don’t want to miss this first-rate event. It’s the perfect way to get a great weekend started! For details on the 13th Nashville Nationals, click here.
