Street Rods Drive Into Progress City

Decatur – Vintage cars with a modern look.

The American Street Rod Association is holding its annual show at Progress City next to the Richland Community College campus.  It's the fifth year for the show.  The first two years were in Rantoul.  The past three years have been in Decatur.

All of the cars & trucks in the show are 1948 or older models.  Most have been modified adding modern options like automatic transmission and souped up engines.  Organizers are hoping for more than 100 cars this weekend.

The show started Friday.  Gates will open Saturday at 7am.  The show will wrap up around 3pm.
