Close to 2,000 hot rods, pick-ups, customs and vintage steel cars will be on display at the Kern County Fairgrounds this weekend for the 28th annual Western Street Rod Nationals, hosted by the National Street Rod Association.

Tuesday on "First Look with Scott Cox," Mike Chrispyn with the NSRA talked about the cars and activities you can expect at the fairgrounds.

The event is open to vehicles 30 years or older, concentrating on pre-1949 cars.

Chrispyn is no stranger to restoring collectible cars and said the hobby is a craft.

"It takes a lot of time and dedication to make these cars; it's not easy," he said.

From Corvettes to four-door station wagons, you can find a car that you like and maybe even buy it, Chrispyn added.

There will also be an arts and crafts area for those who might want to see something other than cars, as well as games for kids and adults.

The three-day event starts at 8 a.m.Friday and ends Sunday. For more information, visit www.kerncountyfair.com.
