    Not particularly a fan of street rods but the NSRA Nationals in Louisville KY the first week in August usually around 10,000-11,000 cars a lot of which are not street rods.

  7. Don't forget the Jalopy Show Down Drags at Beaver Springs. You can camp there too and run your car all day long if you want.

    Street rods isn't a swear word. I would prefer to say "a lot of which are not blingmobiles". There are a lot of very nice traditional street rods there.....10,000 cars, there has to be a little bit of everything.
