Great source for paint, body, tools, parts info.

If you have never been to one of the NSRA or Goodguys events you really need to get to one. Besides seeing three thousand or more cool cars there is a wealth of info on building your rod.

You can see just about every streetrod product in the "flesh". You can ask questions, get measurments, and just plain get a better understanding about things.

I stopped by a number of booths like paint, autobody tools, metal fab tools and got a tremendous amount of information.

The PPG booth was stafted by very well informed guys who REALLY knew their stuff. No product pushing sales rhetoric, we are talking VALUABLE information from technical experts no matter what product you are using.

As mentioned in a post over on the body forum, Ken at Sun Chaser tools was super helpful discussing his "friction system" shrinking disc for autobody repair.

Get out there guys, take a day off work and make the drive. It is much more than a "show". Go whether you have your car done or not, just get there.

Not only do you learn a lot at these shows, but some of them have training seminars as well.

Throw in some sale prices for "show special's" and if you buy enough you save enough, maybe more, than your expenses to go there.

The cars are awesome, the people are mostly great, and a major car show is a great excuse to get away and vacation. Even the wives find things to do.
