Thursday Chevy Coverage from the 2019 Street Rod Nationals

Vintage Chevys roll in early to wake up Louisville - 50th Annual NSRA Street Rod Nationals

Chevys started rolling in early on day one of the 50th Annual NSRA Street Rod Nationals at the Kentucky Exposition Center, in Louisville. From painted to patina, a good amount of Tri-Fives, early Camaros, Novas, Corvettes, El Caminos, Chevelles, a whole bunch of big '60s early muscle, and some really cool trucks and wagons began to occupy the vacant parking spaces.

Our cameras were armed with full batteries and empty CF cards, so we huffed around the Exposition Center grounds in our spankin' new sneakers to gather up some images of the early arrivals, the smart folks who staked out their favorite weekend parking spot for their vintage muscle car or hot rod.

On a quick lap through the Builder's Showcase area we found a few top-notch rides, including the 1971 Nova giveaway car built by Reisinger Custom Rebuilding out of Evansville, Indiana. A gorgeous 1969 Camaro and a couple of 1957 Chevys also got our attention. We even spotted the famous Project X in the Street Rodder magazine display indoors in South Wing C of the Exposition Hall. For many, that alone is worth the price of admission.

2/90

From the air-conditioned indoors, we headed out to the front of the showgrounds to capture more Chevy hot rods and muscle cars of just about every flavor, including Pro Touring, gassers, Pro Street, restomods, and some nicely restored gems.

Check in tomorrow as we make a trip to the StreetKhana Autocross with a full gallery of Chevys torturing tires around a sea of short orange teepees.
