The Nationals in Louisville, Ky is for modified cars, & starting this year(who knows about next year!) the event is open up to 1982. So if you have a modified/customized FL car you're ok for entry. Aug 5-8, '10

George The NSRA's 'modified' term can be taken VERY loosley.

I have seen almost 100 point antiques, show up at the 'Nats' with a set of aftermarket 'big and little' tires/wheels and be consitered a Street Rod!

The exhaust sound isn't quite right, but,,,,,,, it's still consitered a Rod.

They use to be STRINGENT, on NOTHING newer than 1948 can be entered in any of the Nats. Wonder why they 'relaxed' the year cutoff?

I would expect 2 reasons
1. $$$$$$$$$$$$$
2. Membership... if you've ever been to a NSRA event the overwhelming majority aint gittin any younger and street rods aint cheap. By opening it up to newer cars you get an influx of new blood

I belong to both NSRA and Goodguys. I joined NSRA because my brother is heavy into street rods and they used to open Richmond VA to cars up to 72, that way we could do an event together.

I have been to Louisville in the past, pre49 cars, the year I was there it was over 11000 cars. Well worth the trip.

On a side note: Rick you gonna make it to Carlisle?

David. Yes, I plan on being at Carlisle. Hope to talk to you and everyone else! Problem, I know some names, but can't put 'em to faces. Other than a handfull that I know personally, it will be hard to put names to faces.

My first NSRA Nats was I think '76 (?) in OH. The last was in Memphis, '80 I think. The first and last Goodguys was also in OH I think it was '79 Cleveland(?) Too long ago.

All I can remember about the Goodguys, is that I was out some place, local looking at a MoPar Convt Rod. A bunch, two or three clubs, others, had Linda Vaughn (Miss Hurst) posing all over my truck, and I didn't get ONE picture!

Don't ask how she knew me,,,,,,, but when I returned with the bunch that took me to see this other Rod, I walked by the tent where she was at, signing autographs and posing for pictures (my truck was parked maybe 50' from that tent) she said to me with a big smile, "There is NO way, I'm getting into that sleeper!" I had NO idea what she was talking about, untill one of the Hurst guys from her tent, and a guy I knew from southern OH, told me about 20 or 30 people all at once having her pose with and on my truck. (sigh)

NSRA numbers have been fairly flat while Goodguys is growing. Guess they decided to tap into the later support. Has annoyed a lot of rodders. May end up being a "New Coke" thing.
