Fun Time at the Street Rod Nationals

one of our guests in front of his red street rod car in front of our yellow gothic rivival house with green trees in the yard The first weekend in August each year brings one of Louisville's coolest conventions to town. Over 21,000 colorful amazing cars congregate at the Fairgrounds. From the air it looks like a huge bowl of m&ms! Participants drive the cars from all over the US. Louisville has one of the largest indoor facilities in the country, which leaves plenty of air-conditioned areas for the vendors to set up. Anything you would need to restore one of these cars is at this gathering. The public is welcome to attend and walk around the cars as well. One year our whole parking lot was full of these incredible cars...this year only one had the car here. Quite a few of our guests have been coming for many years. Sometimes we even get a ride!
