Redway, Calif. - Among the many good things the National Street Rod Association does, the NSRA Safety Inspection has got to be one of the best.

We attended our first such event, traveling south out of Eureka on scenic Highway 101, aka the "Redwood Highway" for an hour or so, arriving at the 39th Annual Run of the Redwoods, May 31 - June 2, 2013. Read More!

Story by Bob Roseberry

"Feeling" is important to a car show, even though it's not the first thing one normally thinks of. By "feeling", we mean how the show strikes you. Is it lively, vibrant, enjoyable, regardless of how many participants are involved? The "feeling" we got at Goodguys 26th Annual Pacific Northwest Nationals was that the event was w-a-a-a-y bigger than the 2600 or so cars of which we were aware. Further, the weather was near three-bears-perfect — neither too hot nor too cool, and the spectator turnout was a monster pretty much for all three days! Read More!

Cool "Cruisin' the Gut" in Vancouver

Photos & Story by Bob Roseberry

Right up front, Vancouver, Washington's Cruisin' the Gut is an EVENT, not a "Car Show", nor a "Cruise In". Rather, it's a "Cruise" in the spirit of the spontaneous gatherings of the past in towns and cities across the country. There's no fees or registration, people just show up with their cars! Officially the event starts at about 10 AM, but it runs 'till as late as there are people willing to cruise! Read More!

The 2013 NSRA Appreciation Day was held at Mathewson's Automotive, in Renton, Washington on May 11, 2013. The "official" starting time was 9 am, but there were already a dozen or so cars at the facility when we arrived to set things up, and prepare for inspection sheet sign-ups, as well as the preparations for the free hot dog and chili lunch that Brent Kranz provides for those who attend the event.

You Meet the Coolest Gearheads CruZin' the Backroads

By David Marin

Each season, the CruZin' Crew logs many miles attending car shows, rod runs and the like. The journey to our destination is the really cool thing as we travel the back roads surrounded by trees and wildlife. We like taking the off-the-beaten-path route, stopping at points of interest like old barns, junkyards, and rusty relics. Read More!
