The National Association of Street Clubs, held an Extraordinary General Meeting, on the 18th February 2018, which had been called by the member clubs who had attended the NASC Annual General Meeting on 26th November 2017. The EGM was called to include the wider club membership, as the financial viability of the NASC and the lack of support needed to be discussed and any ideas for the future could be expressed.
At the EGM, it was agreed with all the club members present (21 Clubs were represented in total) that the National Association of Street Clubs was to be dissolved, ending an era of the organisation that had been established for 43 years in the Custom and Hotrod vehicle scene.
Discussions prior to this decision included the downturn in club memberships over the years, lack of attendance at shows and the increase in costs of putting shows on. The Street Rod Nationals sustained a heavy financial loss in 2017.
The 21 club representatives appointed Dave King & John Pryor as caretakers/trustees to carry out an audit of any assets in order to sell them off, and donate any proceeds, and club funds to the charities agreed by the member clubs present, which are the Air Ambulance charities and the Macmillan Cancer charity.
Welcome to the
National Association of Street Clubs
It’s over forty years since the N.A.S.C. began actively campaigning to unite the interests of all Rod and Custom enthusiasts throughout the UK.
In 1974 a small but dedicated band of enthusiasts had the vision to found the National Association of Street Clubs; its aim was to become the umbrella organisation to effectively and fairly represent the ever-growing number of Street Rod and Custom Car clubs throughout the UK.
Some of the current committee have actually been involved with the association since its inception. They still have the drive and commitment to continue to work hard to ensure it remains one of the best organisations of its type.
The N.A.S.C. has expanded to encompass the Street Rod, Custom, American and even the Drag Racing fraternities, representing a large majority of UK based enthusiasts. In partnership with two other organisations it has been actively campaigning to protect the interests of all UK Rod and Custom enthusiasts against restrictive legislation that potentially threatens us all.
Members of the association now hail from all around the World, not just the UK and, as one of the best known associations within the sport, it continues to support and represent its member clubs. So whether you are an established enthusiast or a complete newcomer, you will be made most welcome when joining the N.A.S.C. or attending one of its prestigious events.
