2017 LaCrosse, Ks

Jul 19, 2017

The Shriners took over the show held at La Crosse.  They got what I estimate to be about 70 cars,  Not a many as sometimes but some great vehicles. Take a look:

Ok I am getting partial to wagons and one cool Delivery.  Maybe because my girlfriends are increasing in size I mean number!  Sorry girls.

Scott City brought 9 cars.

THEN THERE WAS THAT GUY THAT KEEPS SHOWING UP!

Hudsons changed over the years, now they are no more.

Some more of the cars there.  Would you belive the the purple coupe in the last picture came from MARRS??????

Cops cauight this little yellow Coupe

How aboiut this combo?

I JUST LOVE MAUPIN'S BUTT, OH, I MEAN THE REAR END OF HIS 1956 CADDY.

THE SHRINER'S BROUGHT THEIR RIDES.

And Suchy's parents just sat quietly watching.   I think I am done but you can check back.

IN THE MEANTIME GO TO HAYS, KANSAS THIS WEEKEND.  HAROLD BETTIS SAYS HE WILL HAVE MORE THAN THE 200 LAST YEAR.  BETTER YET I WILL NOT BE THERE BECAUSE I GOT TO GO TO MECUM IN DENVER.

 

I went to Garden City, Kansas on July 8, 2017 for Jungle Run III.  This is the third year for the new Jungle Run in Lee RIchardson Zoo.  There were monkeys in the Zoo and monkeys at the show.  Take a look. 

We start out with Don Gilbert's Cobra.  You see this monkey sticking his head just above the roll bar.

There were around 40 cars but the above shows the diversity in the cars there.  And here are more.

Chuck Gill and his Chopped Top pickup were there to the joy of all other participants.  Did I mention monkeys????

The above is a new car to Southwest Kansas.  I remember this guy's Red 57 Chevy.  He has good taste.   NoI cannot remember names. 

Grinnell and Lacrosse next weekend.  I plan on being at at least one.   See you down the way!

Went to Dodge City June 30, 2017 for a show at the National Guard Armory.   They had 30 plus cars.   Good cause (veterns) and could have had a few more cars if it would have been a little cooler and if the show had been on grass.  Anyway I had a good time as always.  Take a look:

We start out with Johnny Maupin's 56 Cadilac as always the best around in my opinion.

A few of the cars there, 1964 1/2 Mustang Convertible and 1937 Chevrolet 2 door sedan and Alan Scott brought the 1967 Chevelle.

A good Rat Rod.

One slick Purple Street Rod.

This was described as a 1933 Ford.   I was told the cab came from a combine.  The top is all glass. Last but not least it is right hand drive.  

The awards started with the Mustang at the far end of this picture.

Mark Vonleonrod's 64 Plymouth Sport Fury received 2 trophies.  The above 64 Chevy got a trophy partly I think because someone had engraved the door handles.  Pretty amazing.  The trophies were all homemade and cool but heavy.
