If you checked out the gallery from our day-one coverage of the NSRA Southeast Nats, you know that early morning rain surely put a small damper on the festivities. While the turnout was great, I had to wonder of the inclement weather caused a few participants to hold out bringing their ride to the NSRA event until Saturday morning.
When I arrived at the Florida State Fairgrounds around 7:30 a.m., I was planning to get a good parking spot. I did, and there were a lot of other participants that had the same idea, as some of the prime real estate already had more than a few really cool hot rods taking up residence. By 8:30 in the morning, the grounds were filling fast.
As I stated yesterday, this is an all-makes and models extravaganza of a weekend, and if you can appreciate those cars that do not carry a Bow-Tie emblem, it was sensory overload. Don’t get me wrong, Chevrolet was well represented, and between the street rods, trucks, muscle cars, and wagons, the event was sure to make any Bow-Tie fan happy.
This was the 32nd appearance of the NSRA as they threw a great party at the Southeast Street Rod Nationals, and if the crowd was any indication, next year is guaranteed to be another great year. We understand that many of you might not have had the opportunity to enjoy the festivities at this over-the-top event, so we have put together a small gallery so you can at least see what you missed.
