United Street Rods of Idaho Fall 2011 picnic USRI

A great turn out and a special thanks to the USRI board for a nice day and free food. Be sure and check the USRI website for updates on the meeting . One item that came up was the fenderless law. This  is for pre 1935 vehicles. So if you are running a latter model vehicle , hot rod or not you are not  covered by this law and should have fenders. I don’t know that Law enforcement is giving anyone trouble, but if you have a vehicle that falls into this category you may want to be pro active and start trying to up the years on this law.

Friday was sunny so the Hot Rods and Muscle cars were out

Friday was finally a nice spring day. After Big Jacks open house , I  took the Rumbler to Patty’s Burger Time for lunch and then later to a little get together on Fairview. Nice weather all day brought out the cars and makes it feel like we may have spring and hot rods yet this year.

I saw members from several clubs including: No-Limit Classics  , Gear Jammers, Farm Boys,Rif-Raf , USRI , Mopars Unlimited and The Barons

Please read Rod & Custom Dec 2010 The Future of our Hobby: in your hands… or in jeopardy?

Read, Believe and Take Action! I won’t rehash the entire article – buy the magaazine and study the problem. The article also shows us the answer. We must make our collective voices heard. Here in Idaho we are lucky to have United Street Rods of Idaho ( USRI). The organization has helped pass legislation on titles, fenders , blues dots and much more. Check out the web site http://www.usri.org/usri.htm . If you aren’t a member please join – it’s only $5.00 a year, a very small fee to help keep our hobby alive. Join the national organizations. If your state doesn’t have an organization, start one! Lobby your state to make sure you can still enjoy your car in the years to come.

Thanks to Rob Fortier for bringing this to the forefront. His ‘Behind the Wheel’ editorials are well written. I enjoyed his views on this issue.
