Come spring, you'll find a car show just about every month in the Tri-Cities.  And this weekend, the Tri City Street Rods are kicking off the show season.

The Tri City Street Rods are hosting their 41st annual auto show-- and they say this year is the best one yet.

With more than 130 vehicles, the show has antiques, classics, even motorcycles and tractors.

With an expected 4,000 people walking through the aisles over the two day show, club members say car shows aren't just for gear-heads.

"Everybody likes a car. I don't care if you deny it. Deep down you like a car. And you've probably have had a favorite. Most of the time the comment is, well I had one of those when I was in high school or college and I wish I could get it back," said Gaylen Rainforth, one Tri-City Street Rod member. 

And the highlight of the auto show?  The Nebraska Car that won 2013's Ridler Award from the Detroit Autorama-- the top honor for cars across the country.
