1,600 street rods, customs, muscle cars and street machines will be at Expo New Mexico this summer as the National Street Rod Association presents its 1st Annual Route 66 Street Rod Nationals. The dates for the city’s largest vintage car show are August 23, 24, 25, 2019.
This will be the first time the NSRA Route 66 Street Rod Nationals has been held in Albuquerque and a big turnout is expected this year. Almost all Expo New Mexico will be utilized for the event as well as many of the buildings, which will house a large number of manufacturer and dealer displays and other attractions.
NSRA defines a street rod as a modernized vintage vehicle that is of pre-1949 manufacture. These vehicles are equipped with the latest options available on the newest model vehicles, including but not limited to disc brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, and tilt steering wheel.
Most of those attending have updated the engine and drivetrain to enable the owner to cruise down the highway in comfort and safely maintain the speeds traveled by more modern vehicles. Included in this event are muscle cars, factory produced high horsepower machines from the 60’s and 70’s along with the classics cars of the 50’s.
This is truly a unique mix of old and new together again at the Expo New Mexico and a national gathering of fine vintage automobiles of every description.
