For three days I was in a custom car and truck time warp while attending the 34th annual Minnesota Street Rod Association (MSRA) Back to the '50s Weekend. This enormous event was held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, stretching across 340 acres, in St. Paul, Minnesota. The MSRA event drew more than 12,750 preregistered pre-'62 vehicles. More than 250,000 spectators walked through the turnstiles during the weekend festivities.

The MSRA annual Back to the '50s Weekend extravaganza was definitely a life-altering experience. I highly recommend attending any MSRA event. Mark your calendars for next year's 35th annual Back to the '50s Weekend, June 20-22, 2008.
