3,000 Vintage Cars Heading For Knoxville!



3,000 street rods, customs, muscle cars and street machines will be on hand at the Chilhowee Park & Expo Center this spring as the National Street Rod Association® presents its 39th Annual Street Rod Nationals South Plus. The dates for the city's largest vintage car show will be May 3, 4, 5, 2013.

This will be the 30th time the NSRA Street Rod Nationals South Plus has been held in Knoxville and an all time high number of participants and spectators are expected this year. Almost all of the Chilhowee Park & Expo Center will be utilized for the event as well as many of the buildings, which will house a large number of manufacturer and dealer displays and other attractions.


The host organization, NSRA, defines a street rod as a modernized vintage vehicle that must be of pre 1949 manufacture. These vehicles are equipped with the latest options available on the newest model vehicles, including but not limited to disc brakes, air conditioning, cruise control, and tilt steering wheel. Most of those attending have updated the engine and drive train to enable the owner to cruise down the highway in comfort and safely maintain the speeds traveled by more modern vehicles. All vehicles must be driven on to the grounds.

Included in this event are muscle cars, those factory produced high horsepower machines from the 60's and 70's along with the classics cars of the 50's. This is truly unique mix of old and new together for the first time at Chilhowee Park & Expo Center and a national gathering of fine vintage automobiles of every description. The NSRA Street Rod Nationals South Plus is the area's largest automotive participation event and spectators from around the area will attend the event.

The NSRA Street Rod Nationals South Plus is an excellent event for spectators to attend and those who take time to attend will be treated to the sights and sounds of some of the most beautiful, best constructed vintage vehicles ever assembled in one place. One of the special attractions for the spectators is that they can walk right up to the vehicles and check each one out close up as they are not roped-off or otherwise confined. All are in the open and can be examined top to bottom, front to back, inside and out. While the exquisite paint and other features of the car should not be touched, spectators are free to look to their heart's content.

The big automotive show will be at the beautiful Chilhowee Park & Expo Center and is open to the public May 3, 4, 5, 2013. Make your plans now to attend the 39th Annual Street Rod Nationals South Plus in Knoxville, Tennessee.
