Our Favorite Hot Rods from the 2018 NSRA Street Rod Nationals

It’s a show that never lets us down, the NSRA Street Rod Nationals. Every year, we make the drive to Louisville, Kentucky for the Nationals, an event that’s been going on for 49 years. We’ve met some of our greatest customers in Louisville, and we meet new ones every year, so it’s a must-attend event for our team. This year, we had a great time breaking in our new guy, Holden on his first trip to the Street Rod Nationals and by Sunday afternoon, he was ready to roll back to Tennessee. But it was back to work on Monday and now that we’ve had some time to reflect on our trip, we wanted to pass along some of our favorite hot rods and custom creations from the NSRA’s largest car show. Take a look, and keep us in mind for your next hot rod project…we have the parts you need!

    during WWII my mother worked for Harts Automotive Parts, just down the street from your place. I now live in florida for the last 65 years and still look forward to visit your place when in the Chatt area. Keep up the good work

    Honest Charley,

    Made my 1st trip to Honest Charley’s Speed Shop in 1964. I was a senior at Fulton HS in Knoxville TN and I laid out of school one day to drive to Chattanooga and pick up a 3 carb manifold for my ’55 Chev 2-Door Post. Got in trouble BIG TIME, but it was worth it!! Wish I still had that Chev!! Keep them BLOGS coming’!!
