TUCSON, Ariz— TSRA presented a check of $4,750 to the Pima Community College Foundation, bringing its total investment and giving to the College to $15,000. CAID Industries, Dent Busters, Swaim Associates Limited, We Buy Houses, and Yarborough Electronics Inc. came together and contributed their annual car show fees to create the most recent donation. Greg Wilson, Dean of PCC’s Applied Technology and Marcy Euler, President of Pima Foundation were on-hand to receive TSRA’s donation.

Tucson Street Rod Association (TSRA) was formed in 1971 by a small group of dedicated car enthusiasts who hoped to encourage a local interest in street rods, originally with vehicles 1948 and older. The TSRA Rodders Day Car Show has been a mainstay on the Tucson event calendar for over 40 years. The next TSRA Rodders Day Car Show is set for April 24, 2021, at PCC’s Downtown Campus. The event is free and open to the public.
