NSRA Southwest Nationals

Oklahoma City, OK

April 2 - 4, 2004


The National Street Rod Association (NSRA) held its annual Southwest Nationals on the weekend of April 2nd through the 4th at the State Fair Grounds Park in Oklahoma City, OK.  In the days leading up to the event, the weather forecast looked bad.  The area was being pelted with heavy rain and hail storms as well as tornado sightings.  We weren't sure if the weather was going to hold out for this event or not, but we risked it and made the trip up for it anyhow.  Much to our delight, the event was held without any threat of bad weather.  In fact we couldn't have asked for weather any better.  The sun was out shining brightly and the light breeze was almost chilly.  Even in the middle of the day, the temperature sat around mid 60s.  Cars from all over the country made their way to Oklahoma for this event.  The NSRA is strict to participation to vehicles that are from 1948 or earlier, so did not see many 50's or 60's cars at this event except out in the parking lot or in the car sales corral.  Thousands of cars and their owners filled the grounds as well as vendors and merchants selling and displaying their goods.  Various events and festivities are part of this street rod weekend.  I took plenty pictures and have a few of the many cars here for you to enjoy.  Be sure to get info for next year's event and make your way up to Oklahoma City for the next Southwest Nationals event. 

You can find more info on NSRA or its events on their website:
