(Words and photos by Doug Gregory) – If these articles ran in sequence then this is the end of the general event coverage from the 2017 edition of the NSRA Street Rod Nationals. I have a club feature in the works and a couple cars that caught my eye got a few more photos than anything else so I will likely do up something for them. Overall this event was a good one with over 10,000 cars entered. If you like to look (at hotrods and such), check out new offerings from the aftermarket, good conversation, or need that certain thing from the swap meet I suggest you come out next year. It’s a treat for the eyes, ears, and soul of a true gearhead.
Highlights in this gallery…. How about a powder blue Chevy 3100 sporting a Buick Nailhead. Then there’s the faded blue 70s Olds Cutlass wagon toting a serious load inside and on top. The square-body GMC Sierra Grande long roof was pretty sharp and stood out in its classic simplicity. Anyone else miss two-tone paint…? This 50-yr-old man learned something new on this day. It was a bit of knowledge my 17-yr-old already had and didn’t previously share with me. The Prancing Moose… So I was checking out this very well-done LS-swapped Volvo wagon and there’s this emblem that looks somewhat like a prancing horse…but not. When questioned my son opens up and tells me about it. Most excellent nameplate for these and I definitely approve (not that my approval matters). We close this one out with a faux-wood-paneled, faux Laguna S-3 Malibu wagon. Wow.
And on that note we’re done. Thanks for checking out the coverage.
