Every summer Louisville, KY is the proud home of the largest street rod show in the world. A street rod is a customized car with a model year earlier than 1949. Street rodders pour into town from every part of North America. Streets and parking lots everywhere fill up with antique cars. This year they had 13,000 cars registered in the event and another 10,000 or so just cruising. This shot was taken as they poured into the fair grounds on Saturday morning for the big day. http://www.nsra-usa.com/

You don't have to be rich to participate. "Rat rods" are unfinished cars reminiscent of the pieced-together jallopies that teenagers drove in the 1950's. This fellow's car may have been a little to ratty though, as he blew a radiator hose comming into the event. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_rod

Thanks. It's a photography enthusiast's heaven too. It's what fighter pilots might call a "target rich environment."

Great shots, Walter. A former boss of mine had a couple great street rods. He is living somewhere in Arizona, now. He might have been at that show.

Thanks Cal,
Walter is the king of the car shows, but these aren't his.
