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.
Our meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at Casa Serrano Mexican Restaurant at 7 pm. We hold 2 major shows. The "Hot Rods & Harleys Spring Run" each May the weekend after Mother's Day at The Avi Resort Hotel & Casino just across the river in Laughlin, NV and "Roddin' On The River" the last weekend in Sept. at The Riverside Resort & Casino also in Laughlin.

Founded in 1996, The Rumblers Car Club have helped breath new life into a dying hot rod scene that was recovering from the severe wounds of the late eighties, early nineties Street Rod plague. Over the past decade, The Rumblers with the help of other local clubs have helped to set a firm foundation for an ever growing Nostalgia Scene right here in the heart of New York City. Outside New York, The Rumblers have had a World Wide impact with seven chapters across the United States (New Jersey, Orlando, Albuquerque, Los Angeles, San Francisco, The Nomads) and their newest chapter over seas in Hamburg, Germany.
