When the 28th annual Wesco Autobody Supply Goodguys Pacific Northwest Nationals roll into the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup this weekend, the city of Auburn will be well represented with more than 20 cars pre-registered for the event.

A good chunk of these will appear courtesy local hot rod and custom car fabricator Wicked Fabrications, run by Auburn native Craig Wick.

“We are going to have a booth there and have five cars registered, some personal, some customer cars,” Wick said. “This is our first year having a booth there.”

Among the cars being displayed at the Northwest’s largest auto show will be a 1969 Mustang that Wick customized for his wife. He updated the car’s suspension, steering and brakes, while maintaining the interior and exterior looks of the original Pony Car.

“And the green 1967 (Mustang) will be there,” Wick added.

Additionally, the Wicked crew will bring along a 1967 Chevy C10 pickup truck, a 1965 Oldsmobile 442 and a 1928 Ford Model A.

“This show is the biggest one around,” Wick said. “There will be around 2,500 cars, where most of them you’ll see are a couple 100.”

In addition to the cars brought by Wick and the employees at the shop, Wick estimated a dozen more of his creations would be at the show, displayed by their owners.
