Did you know Minnesota had a Street Rod Association? Did you know its at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds this weekend? Do you even know what a Street Rod is? If you answered “no” to all those questions, then you are like me … which is why you should join me by going to the Fair tonight to check out the “Back to the 50’s” Hot Rod cars on display. I have to admit, its probably the greatest event I never knew existed. Over 11,000 cars to drool over, pine over, and even auction over. Yep, you could take one home. I’ll be driving my vintage 2007 RX-8 to the show, and who knows, maybe I’ll come home with a 1932 Model A. Stranger things have happened.
However, if I stick with the 8, then that’s all good too. Tomorrow is the annual gathering of the Minnesota RX-8 Enthusiasts in SLP. I’m not obsessed with cars by any means, but I love a good gathering of metal and rubber and think this weekend will be a hit. Not too bad a way to spend a weekend in MN.
