Triple Cities Street Rods
About Triple Cities Street Rods
The T.C.S.R. was started and chartered in April 1975. It was established by a group of EIGHT members who were interested in “Street Rods”. These members either owned and drove a Street Rod or were presently working on a project car to soon be registered and driven on the road.
What is a Street rod? Webster’s dictionary defines a hot rod as an automobile rebuilt or modified for high speed and fast acceleration. Street rods are hot rods that are licensed and driven on the streets and must past safety inspections like other cars.
The club by laws state to become a member you must own a pre-1955 modified car and come to three consecutive meetings, plus participate in one club related event within this time frame. The organization has grown over the years to include 40 members from NY and PA. The club events include: an after Christmas Party, a spring Sock Hop (to raise money and collect food for a local food pantry), and a car show held at Hickories Park , Owego in the summer. The meetings are held once a month on the second Wednesday night unless additional meetings are needed.
The car show started as a fun event and was called the Hickories Rod Run. It evolved into a fundraiser for local charities and is called “Cars in the Park”. There are many fun events including kids games, food, Chinese auction, Sock Hop, car teeter-totter competition, Poker run and nineteen classes of automobiles and cycles. Many individuals with illnesses and numerous charities through out the Southern Tier NY and Northeastern PA have benefited from the funds raised at the car show.
