The term “Street Rod” has lost it’s original meaning over the years. It’s loosely used now a days. Also there used to be many street rod pre-’49 events to go to, now there are only a handful left.
Well…..I can sit by and just let it go or I can do something about it! All it takes is a street rodder to restart a great thing! I am a street rodder and I have this domain name called astreetrodder.com so I’m on a mission to do something about it.

Putting together a Pre-’49 Street Rod only car show in Vicksburg, MS at the Hampton Inn and Suites. Check back for more details but mark your calendar for March 7-9, 2019 and come to Vicksburg, MS.
Paws Rescue will benefit from the profit of this event!

1st Annual Cruisin’ for Paws
Car Show on March 7-9, 2019 in Vicksburg, MS
I am pleased to announce that there will be a pre-’49 car show called Cruisin’ for Paws March 7-9, 2019 in Vicksburg, MS at the Hampton Inn and Suites (3330 Clay St.). This event will attract street rods from all across the USA. While they are in town, they will be staying at hotels, eating at restaurants, buying gas, etc. I want to spotlight small businesses in Vicksburg. The idea is to get the cars out into the city of Vicksburg while they are here, so a scavenger hunt will take place during this time.
With an event of this type, as I mentioned earlier I will be expecting street rods from several states as it will be advertised all over. Generally folks from out of state will be spending between $500 and $800 just on fuel, hotels, & eating at local restaurants. So this event has the potential to have a huge economic impact in this city.
Paws Rescue will benefit from the profit of this event.
