Event Coverage: Street Classics Pre 1955 Show

0

I have been to a few Street Classics shows before and I always have a good time so when I saw a flier for their Pre 1955, Hot Rods – Roadsters -Rat Rods, show I made sure to stick it on my fridge so I would remember to cover it.

While the show was smaller than previous Street Classics shows I had been too (due to age specification) the quality of cars was still amazing.

Trucks
Vintage trucks just have a certain look about them that makes them unique. I think it has to do with the balance of round fenders with strong body lines.

While technically all the cars on this page could fit into this category I am going to use it to separate the other rods from the Highboys and Lowboys
