Fifty Years of Fun with Cars

The NSRA’s 5oth Anniversary show is probably going to attract the largest number of cars and spectators that have ever attended this event in Louisville. Several of my friends are driving from LA and also attended the first event in Peoria, IL 1970.

Jane and I attended the Peoria event also. Small by today’s numbers, but was just as exciting to see the West Coast cars make it to Illinois. The rest is history and will forever be in the minds of those who attended. The birth of “Fun with Cars” and “Street is Neat was born.

I am not able to make the event but wish NSRA all the success for “Keeping the flame burning” all these years.

Stay Tooned!
