    gonna roll a 79 pinto longroof panel with wood sides to it. brown on 14" slots and still has the white lettered tires. the best part is the mushroom window. if I get there early enough I plan to power park that bad boy looking forwards to seeing all the 70's hotrods.. with the 4 banger it should get good miles on the drive out. I am adding an extra day or so because it does not like to roll over 65.

    The Frog Follies in Evansville, IN. is still pre 49, good sized show and swap meet.
     
  3. Matt, I'm trying to put together a stash Pintos and Vegas out here in the Dakotas for trading material for your Deuce panel since you won't be needing it now! :D

    Your Uncle should find one of the NSRA Officers's cars and power park next to it! Or maybe "break down" in front of the Walker Radiator trailor?

    Just a thought!:D

    I belonged for several years but let it lapse this year. I dropped Goodguys too. I'd rather support the Hamb and read the threads here. I think NSRA needs to upgrade their image as others have said and Goodguys seems too "gold chain" for me. I like the hands on nature of the Hamb and the atmosphere.

    Dad said he had a crazy-assed dream about the late models getting into the street rod nationals. He said all of the late models had Model A grill shells worked into the front sheet metal....vegas, camaros, mustangs, impallas...everything.

    He said the most fucked up part was having a conversation with the owner of a 57 ford and telling the the guy that he really liked the Model A grill conversion.

    This is just plain wrong. 60's and 70's cars with stock wheels?

  18. Now that just pisses me off! It's one thing to be diligent in controlling spectator admission, it's quite another to be so arrogant in your own authority that you refuse to listen to reason and further refuse to help a registered, (make that twice registered) "member" resolve the problem. Kudos to you for not having occasion to tell us what Luvulle jail food tastes like.

    Theres a large vendor I know who was treated in a similar manner by NSRA staff, and they stopped spending the huge money to exhibit with them. By the way, Goodguys fees to exhibit are quite a bit less, and Goodguys kisses their butts and thanks them for participating. Go figure.

    go to goodguys indy(probably get wet) or columbus, great cars, great vibe, and racing. goodguys shows are better than the nats. nsra couldnt have dicked their members any harder if they tried. add muscle cars and later cars and trucks to a show where the members prided themselves on being pre 49, what a slap in the face.

    stopped going to any event that wasn't for charity or a cause twenty years ago. I don't want to make someone else rich on my labor but I will donate. I guess I have seen to much change, trailer queens, and people that can't change plugs let alone build a car so now I am just grumpy.

    Been to every one since '96 (I know, but I'm a young pup) and made up my mind last year I wasn't going. Goodguys Indy is closer to home, and I can see some vintage racing to boot. Looville is just another car show at this point.

    For a while there I was mellowing out and had considered going to Louisville in hopes that maybe it really won't be a clusterfuck....but all of the pre-1980 propoganda in Street Scene and Street Rodder just pisses me off more and more each month.

    Fuck them and "this is what the membership asked for" bullshit.

    If you have ever been to the Louisville Street Rods open car show in Sept. in Iroquois Park, then you have some type of idea what to expect at this year's NSRA event. That event has been a joke for years. They say no saving spaces. Then you drive through at 8:00 a.m. and see the 1st mile lined with lawn chairs all tied together with rope blocking off about 50 parking spaces. If you complain to the members, they just ignore you.

    I did knoxville in may--gave it the benefit. it wasn't as bad as I'd feared, but I just didn't feal right. I"m not planning to go back next year--or to Louisville for that matter--I'll spend my vacation time and money going to frog follies instead.

    That is unbelievable.

    Not saying it is not true or I don't believe you, I am just amazed that number is that low.

    Don't they usually hit 12,000 plus?

    What has the attendance been the last few years?
