Vintage Cars to Flood Kalamazoo This Weekend

Over 3,000 street rods will be on hand at the Kalamazoo County Fairgrounds in Kalamazoo, Mich., as the National Street Rod Association presents its 28th Annual Street Rod Nationals North. The dates for the city’s largest vintage car show are September 14, 15, 16 2007.

This will be the 21st time the NSTA Street Rod Nationals North have been held in Kalamazoo and an all time high number of participants and spectators are expected this year. Almost all of the Kalamazoo County Fairgrounds will be utilized for the event as well as dealer displays and other attractions.

The host organization, NSRA, defines a street rod as a modernized vintage vehicle that must be of pre-1949 manufacture. These vehicles are equipped with the latest options available on the newest model vehicles, including but not limited to disc brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, and tilt steering wheel. Most of those attending have updated the engine and drive train to enable the owner to cruise down the highway in comfort and safely maintain the speeds traveled by more modern vehicles. This enables owners to drive their vehicles from all over the United States. All vehicles must be driven on to the grounds.
