Education Days will once again be held at the National Street Rod Association (NSRA) Nationals in Louisville, where 12 hot-rod product manufacturers will give hour-long presentations on not only their product lines, but also tips and tricks for building project vehicles.

“These seminars are a great opportunity for Street Rod Nationals participants and spectators to learn product and installation techniques directly from the manufacturers,” said Rick Love of Vintage Air, who will present on “The Basics of Air Conditioning.”

The sessions will take place Thursday–Friday, August 3–4, with sessions beginning at 9:00 a.m. and concluding at 4:15 p.m. Some sessions will be set up classroom-style and feature panel discussions, while others will be presentation style. These valuable sessions are open to all NSRA Nationals attendees. This is a popular event and seats are limited.

Reserve a spot in the sessions of your choice.
