43rd Annual NSRA Western Street Rod Nationals

Words & Photos by Sherm Porter

Bakersfield…yes, it can get warm…the NSRA office was very aware of this, therefore scheduling the Western Street Rod Nationals during late springtime, when the mild temperatures are still with the San Joaquin Valley…welcoming upwards of 2,000 entries from across the nation.

As is typical with the large association events, the variety and years run the gamut, from T’s to muscle cars…something for everyone, no matter what your favorite is…

Parking on the large grassy areas, parking on the streets of the fairgrounds and continuous cruising, combined with the many vendors, safety inspection, swap meet, display for the ladies and music by the best street rod MC in the nation…Wings Callahan, the fun doesn’t stop…if you somehow missed going to an NSRA event, be sure to look up one in your area, you won’t be disappointed!
