Description

Street Rods Unlimited was founded July, 1972. The founding members set forth these purposes for the club:
1. Promote the sport of street rodding through active participation with pre-49 street rods and specialty cars.
2. Provide mutual assistance to fellow street rodders.
3. Promote automobile safety.
4. In general, "To Have Fun With Cars".

During the mid-1980's, the club incorporated as Yesteryear Inc., dba/Street Rods Unlimited. Today, SRU is a family oriented group with members from all walks of life, living in San Bernardino, Los Angeles, and Orange counties. We also have associate members in Central California, Arizona, and Washington State. We are a non-profit, mutual benefit corporation.

Over the years, Street Rods Unlimited has sponsored a variety of events in Southern California. The largest, and most popular, was the Yesteryear Drags and Rod Run started in 1975 at Irwindale Raceway in Irwindale, California. This event drew participants from all over the west coast to compete down the 1/4 mile drag strip. When Irwindale closed, the event was moved to the Orange County International Raceway (OCIR) in Tustin, California. This location drew a record number of cars to show and/or race as well as record crowds for the one-day event. Unfortunately OCIR also closed, and the event moved to LA County Raceway in Palmdale, California where it became a two-day event. The last Yesteryear Drags was held in 1988.
