It’s easy to be discouraged by the gradual decline in participation in the street rodding world. Organizations like NSRA have made great effort to bring more folks to its events, and it appears to be working. This year, the NSRA Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky had 10,200 cars, which is actually a slight increase over the attendance numbers from last year. We’re pleased to see an upward swing in attendance, and we can truthfully say that there was a little more enthusiasm at this year’s show, compared to years past. People are building hot rods, buying parts and simply having a good time with old cars. We spoke to a number of hot rodders throughout the weekend, and hopefully they can get their projects on the road by using some genuine Honest Charley speed parts. While we were at the Nationals, we snapped a few pictures of our favorite cars from the event, as well as bit of action from a cool cruise night just outside of the fairgrounds on Friday night. It was a fun night with a little bit of gear head mischief, which included tire smoke and a rockin’ good time. Check it out!
