There is no angel hair at Back To The ’50s. No velvet ropes and stanchions. No carpeted display areas or mirrors. Nobody goes home with a 3-foot-long cardboard check for $10,000 in prize money. In fact, there are no awards, trophies, plaques, or prizes at Back To The ’50s. There are street rods and street rodders—more of them than at any other enclosed event in America. In 2018, approximately 12,000 cars and trucks rolled into the Minnesota State Fairgrounds for the Minnesota Street Rod Association's 45th annual party in St. Paul.

All those participants, combined with the commercial vendors, the Sunday swap meet crowd, and all those spectators, guarantee that for three days every summer, Back To The ’50s is basically the third largest city in Minnesota.

Back to the 50 ' s in Minneapolis/ St . Paul. Back to the 50 ' s in Minneapolis/ St . Paul. Just under 12,000 cars entered. This is one of the best shows I've ever been to. Minnesota Street Rod Association Car Show 2012 - Продолжительность: 14:31 Gerry Francis 30 720 просмотров.

Back To The ’50s is not strictly limited to street rods. The show also welcomes customs, classic trucks, sports cars, Gassers, street cruisers, exotic cars, and a few that defy categories—as long as they are of 1964 and earlier vintage.

The 1964 cars and trucks that make up the newest participating vehicles were only 10 years old when the MSRA held the very first Back To The ’50s show back in 1974 in a shopping center parking lot. That premiere event, with approximately 150 vehicles, is a familiar part of Minnesota street rodding history now. It didn't take long for the show to outgrow its original venue.

STREET RODDER was there in 2018, as we are every year, to take in all the fun and enjoy the cars, in addition to finding 10 outstanding rides for the Painless Performance Products/STREET RODDER Top 100 program and one Blue Oval vehicle for the Best Ford In A Ford program. Back To The ’50s is also a popular location for the STREET RODDER Road Tour every year.

Sunday Swap Meet

The swap meet is a one-day-only part of Back To The ’50s. For sellers, it's a chance to unload some unfinished—or unstarted—project cars. For buyers, it's a chance to find parts for a homebuilt project, or to find something they didn't know they were looking for until they saw it on a table or on a trailer. For us, it's a chance to see potential rods of the future. We hope the raw material in these photos will be finished cars someday, displayed at shows and driven on the street.

A Street-Friendly Version Of The Moto Guzzi V85 In The Works

A Street-Friendly Version Of The Moto Guzzi V85 In The Works Something street-friendly this way comes. Moto Guzzi knew what it was doing when it unveiled the all-new V85 TT. True enough, the adventure-oriented model made some waves on the market and got a flight of nostalgics and enthusiasts excited about what’s to come. Dipping its paintbrushes in the colors of its history, the brand rekindles its love of the enduro segment and does so with a brand new engine. We now learn that the new mill won’t be limited to off-road applications: there’s a street-focused 850 in the works.

STREET RODDER Best Ford In A Ford

A Coyote-Powered, Homebuilt, Factory Five 1933 Roadster

When it comes to choosing Ford power for his street rod, Greg Root, our Best Ford in a Ford winner from Back To The ’50s, didn't need persuading. Greg, from Lake Elmo, Minnesota, worked for Ford and Roush building prototype vehicles. His Factory Five 1933 Ford replica is the most recent of many Ford-powered FoMoCo vehicles he's built and driven.

2020 Ram HD Truck Lineup Spied On The Street In 49 Photos

2020 Ram HD Truck Lineup Spied On The Street In 49 Photos It's a convoy of Detroit iron, from the dually Tradesman to a luxurious Limited model. Our network of spy photographers around the world usually catch some kind of camouflaged prototype from an automaker every single day. However, it’s not often that a fleet of test vehicles are captured at one time, so when that special opportunity comes along, the camera shutter works overtime. That’s what happened recently in Michigan with this group of 2020 Ram HD pickups, and the result is a gallery of 49 photos showing a range of models for the forthcoming heavy duty truck.

The Minnesota Street Rod Association had announced that they have set another new record with 11,795 show cars registered for this year' s Back to the ' 50 s Weekend. Cars On Line.com was here covering the event for our newsletter readers. You can also follow the action on Facebook and Twitter.

We encountered Greg's Coyote-running roadster next to the Ford Performance Parts rig. With its pearl white 'glass body, contemporary wheel and tire combination, race-inspired cockpit, and modular engine, it's a modern interpretation of a classic hot rod.

Greg likes Factory Five's offerings and originally intended to build a 427 Cobra reproduction. Instead, he decided on the 1933 Hot Rod, which has a little more room inside. He said the styling and the fact that you don't see many of them around, is part of the appeal.

Along with the body, Greg used Factory Five's chassis setup, featuring a tubular frame, A-arm and coilover independent front suspension, and three-link rear suspension with coilovers. The Ford 8.8-inch rear with 3.86:1 gears and brakes came from a 1989 Mustang. Wide 255- and 305-series ZR-rated Nitto tires roll on 18- and 20-inch Super Nova 5 wheels from American Racing—complementing the contemporary classic theme of the roadster.

The interior features Factory Five's race bucket seats and banjo-style steering wheel on an ididit column. Greg built the center console and dash and added the Racepak digital instrument display, push-button ignition switch, Vintage Air controls and louvers, USB ports, and Pioneer Mixtrax AV receiver.

Ford Exits Detroit Car Show in More Trouble Than When It Went In

Ford Exits Detroit Car Show in More Trouble Than When It Went In The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is one of the world's largest venues for manufacturers to launch new cars and for industry CEOs to explain their visions for the year ahead. But this year has been a rough one for Ford.

Greg pulled the Ford 5.0L Coyote and six-speed from a 2014 Mustang. Troy Knutson fabricated custom mounts to perch the engine and transmission on the Factory Five 'rails, and DP Performance used SCT Performance tuning hardware to get the engine running perfectly. An active online community of Factory Five owners helped with suggestions when questions came up.

Greg enjoys showing and driving the roadster—but what he enjoys even more is turning wrenches in his basement shop. His mind is already onto the next project car. Maybe a GT40. Maybe with a Coyote engine. Definitely Ford in a Ford.

Dennis Van Kleek and Kay Larson wanted a timeless, unique Deuce, and this Dearborn Deuce roadster, built by Jim Petrykowski at Metal Fab, is it. Tangerine Pearl paint, dark tan custom upholstery, and Budnik wheels enhance the appearance. A carbed 351W engine supplies power. The car has covered 24,000 miles across 19 states. Vintage Air and Classic Instruments add to the success of those road trips.

A Willys Gasser is the car everyone wants, Mike Hughes says. His is packed with a blown 410ci Hemi. Mickey Thompson rubber rolls on 15-inch five-spokes. The vintage drag race interior features fiberglass buckets, a Grant steering wheel, and Stewart-Warner gauges. Creative Metal and Vescio's Restoration participated in the project.

Wayne Hassemer bought three rusting Chevys to create this metallic green beauty. Custom mods include Frenched headlights, V-butted windshield, shaved sheetmetal, and a relocated "foot scraper" plate. A Demon carb tops the Chevy 406 small-block. Interior features VDO gauges, a Premier stereo, and lot of Ultraleather. The 15-year build was interrupted by family life, but now it's driving time.

This International sat in a Minnesota body shop for 20 years before being built in Joseph Ackerley's home shop. He shaved the door handles and driprails, welded the hood into a single piece, and added a Chevy box. A 383 stroker Chevy is fed by a Demon carburetor. Tan leather and vinyl complements all that Viper Red paint. VDO gauges and a Pioneer audio system are cab upgrades.

1947 Cadillac convertible | Jack DeJoy | Prior Lake, MN

Jack DeJoy built the 1947 Cadillac he had always wanted with a pancaked hood, filled cowl, shaved handles, and bright paint. The owner-designed interior wears leather-covered seats facing a 1949 Cadillac dash. It's a Cadillac underhood, too, with a 500ci injected engine. Colorado Custom wheels are wrapped in Hankook radials. Impressive work from this 80-year-old street rodder.

The Crown Sapphire 1959 Impala was stock and partially restored before Kyle Severin rebuilt it as a '60s-inspired restomod cruiser. The original-looking interior is updated with Vintage Air A/C, Dakota Digital gauges, and modern audio components. The tri-power 409 is packed with plenty of hi-po internals. Chrome reverse Wheelsmith wheels are matched with Diamond Back whitewalls.

Mac McCullough's truck was original, numbers-matching, rust-free, and had been apart for years when he began building it into a '60s-style hot rod. A Corvette 327/365 engine with camel hump heads features Porter mufflers to maintain the vintage-style Mac wanted. The interior is distinguished by a pleated vinylcovered bench, an original 1932 steering wheel, and Classic Instruments gauges.

Nuff Sedd Customs honored Stack Calhoun's request to build something "timeless" and "classy;" '70s-era C10 olive green paint and cherry bedwood add to the exterior appeal. Two-tone pleated vinyl covers the bench seat. A 450hp 355 Chevy moves the C10 down the road at 2,000 rpm at 75 mph with the A/C and stereo blasting. "It sounds like a muscle car but drives like a Cadillac," Stack says.
