When the National Street Rod Association opened up its events to post 1948 iron, they grew tremendously. There's no denying the popularity of Tri-Fives, muscle cars and ponycars. The NSRA has instituted a 30-year rolling window, so its events are now open to any car built up to 1980. Next year, that turns to 1981.
At the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa this weekend, the NSRA held its annual Southeast Street Rod Nationals and the Bow Tie crowd didn't disappoint. Tri-Fives were in abundances, as were first-gen Camaros, C1, C2 and C3 Corvettes and Novas.
Here are some photo highlights.
