As much as we love summer, we're also thrilled to see the leaves start to turn and smell the crispness in the air.  It's great weather for those last few outdoor cruises and races of the season, including the final three NSRA events, which include the Street Rod Nationals North in Kalamazoo.  Say hello to our folks from the MHRA Rolling Repair shop if you're up in Michigan for the event.  We bring you Gunner's latest article this week on getting under the hoods of some classic rods, a hearty congrats to photographer Bob Choisser for his recent Dragster Wally win, and a few great rodder's row and rodder's forum contributions.   Have stories to share or shows you've attended?  Email us at [email protected].  Happy Rodding.

Russ Nomore Streetrods has built a reputation of building quality fiberglass bodies, chassis and many supporting components. Some of the many things that have made this reputation possible is the hand lay construction on the fiberglass bodies, superior TIG welding on the chassis along with the use of CAD Design/CNC manufactured parts and support to our customer before, during and after the sell.
