If you’re tired of the cold and snowy weather, make plans now to come to the sunny South for the National Street Rod Association’s (NSRA) Southeast Street Rod Nationals coming to the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida. Even if you’re not inundated with snow or cold weather, this premier automotive event is definitely one to enjoy on April 5, 6, 7, 2019.
This year marks the 32nd time the NSRA has chosen Tampa as the host city for this event. If you’re into hot rods, you can see vehicles that have been driven from all parts of the United States. This truly is a unique gathering of vintage automobiles, and will feature nearly every make, model, and style. In addition to street rods, this event includes all vehicles from the ‘50s through 1989.
This event will include manufacturer displays representing leading automotive specialty and aftermarket suppliers, as well as a “Women’s World” area with arts and crafts. A vintage-car parts “swap meet” adds to the experience and helps the enthusiast find these one-of-a-kind parts.
