140502_Knoxville_0015 The National Street Rod Association (NSRA) has been around since 1970 and it legitimized rod runs in the United States. Coker Tire is the "Official Tire of the NSRA" so we're proud to support its events, and encourage folks to attend the regional events, as well as the BIG ONE...the Street Rod Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky. Since our headquarters is in Chattanooga, Tennessee, our regional event is the Street Rod Nationals South, held at Chilhowee Park in Knoxville, Tennessee. 140503_Knoxville_0304 140502_Knoxville_0056 We didn't have a vendor booth at the Nats South, but we spent the weekend at the show, scoping out feature cars for our advertisements and catalogs. Our ride for the weekend was a family-friendly 1964 Chevy Chevelle four-door sedan, that sits a little lower than stock over a set of 15x6 OE Steel Wheels and dog dish caps. This practical sedan has a 283ci small block topped with a two-barrel carb, and it's a rock solid survivor that has lived it's entire life in Tennessee. 140502_Knoxville_0006 140502_Knoxville_0073 The NSRA Street Rod Nationals South celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, and we couldn't have asked for better weather. Beautiful skies and cool temperatures encouraged a great turnout, so we saw lots of cool stuff rolling on Coker Tire products. From traditional hot rods rolling on Firestone bias ply tires, to muscle cars rolling on BFG Radial T/A tires, we saw a great mix of products on the fairgrounds. Check out some of our favorites vehicles from the event, and be sure to support the NSRA every chance you get! 140502_Knoxville_0069 140502_Knoxville_0230 140503_Knoxville_0380140502_Knoxville_0037 140503_Knoxville_0301 [products]
