ASRF Street Rod Nationals, 2013

A National event brings together people from all over this big brown land - from drought stricken Tasmania and Victoria to battered and burnt Western Australia, and all points in between. As the rodding population ages, people are often more inclined to discuss their wild youth with those from another state, and the common ground is quite remarkable. Obviously, most grew up being absorbed by hot rods, and the other culturally significant events in our lives have often been remarkably similar. Given that, should we expect all our cars to be as alike as our belly buttons are? Apparently not, as you will see in these galleries. We will add more galleries as they become available.

Thursday and Friday had some rain, but not enough to spoil anything. The temperature was mild but the humidity was up during the middle of the day.

Each of these slide shows hold approximately 20 images.

The galleries in the rows below were shot and posted here on Sunday, 31st March. The weather had some holes in it, resulting in the clouds leaking all over the joint.
