We made the trip to Gonzales, LA for the first ever Cajun Street Rod Nationals a couple weeks back. We had a great time hanging out with some friends and seeing some friends we haven’t seen in a while. That’s the great thing about these shows, is that we have friends all over the country that we only see once or twice a year.
The turnout was good for a first time show, somewhere around 650 cars. There were cars from all over the US, but mostly Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and other surrounding states.</p>
We arrived in Gonzales on Thursday afternoon and got checked into the hotel and registered for the show. That night we went to the fairgrounds for the kick-off party. This was a chance to just visit with some of those friends I mentioned earlier and enjoy some good food. Also had some good food the rest of the week, some red beans, meat pies, and alligator balls….
The rest of the weekend was spent working the safety lanes at the show. Got to see some really cool cars come through for safety inspections and talk to the owners about their cars. That’s the part of the job that I enjoy!
On Sunday morning, it was time to head home and get ready to go back to work. Check this link out for some of the pics from the show. Here are a few teasers…
