Yes, that is right, the Valley Nationals has an indoor show full of the highest quality classic cars you’ll see anywhere.
This invitational only portion of the event is reserved for lightly shown vehicles or debut builds. If you believe your ride has what it takes please contact Skip “Red Shorts” Lewis (559) 708-2671
The Valley Nationals is known all over the West Coast for being one of the last events that has a Reliability Run. To stretch our customs feet we begin with multiple shop tours. Around 9:30 a.m. we reconvene to head to the foothills. After about 100 miles as a group through the back roads (hot rod friendly roads of course) we end somewhere and reflect on our morning over some grub. If you’ve never joined us on a Reliability Run you’re mission what many think is the best part of the weekend.
At the Art Show you’ll find the finest in local talent. Most events have to draw artists from all over West Coast, but we don’t. Fresno is home to many of the “First” to lay lines down the side of a vehicle. In the lowbrow incubator you’ll have unique opportunity to meet many of the pioneers and those who are up and coming and keeping the Fresno tradition alive. Don’t miss to be what we think is the best display of artistic talent anywhere is the world.
Rockabilly Mafia Dolls launched the 1st Miss Valley Nationals Pinup Contest. A sisterhood dedicated to empowering women and being positive role models who embody positivity, kindness, and class, the Rockabilly Mafia Dolls are dedicated to giving back to the community. They work with numerous charities to raise funds to help veterans, the homeless, foster children, autism awareness, LGBT, cancer victims, -the list is long and legit. HRC is glad to have them back to the Valley Nationals for this new tradition.
Auto Shop Shootout
One thing that Hot Rod Coalition prides themselves on is having first-class awards. We don’t like being like everybody else, so our awards are set apart from the rest. We have our Top 50 Awards, Best of Show, and many club awards. Come out to the Valley Nationals and compete to see if your ride has what it takes to win one of these babies.
Melting Pot of Enthusiasts
The Valley Nationals is full of diverse cultures and genre’s of hot rodders. We love the inclusive community we’ve been able to create. We hope that all will step out of their comfort zone and see how much fun you can have at a car event when you step out of your comfort zone.

We have a slew of bands that will surely keep you entertained. You’ll enjoy everything from Classic Rock to Rockabilly. We are sure that you’ll be impressed by the musical talent that flocks to the Valley Nationals.
