2910 Bazine Town Party

Aug 11, 2019

On August 10, 2019, I drove 67 miles to Bazine, Kansas.  Every year they have what I would call a town party.  They call it the 16th Annual Bazine Picnic.  Part of that party is a free car show called Wheels In The Park.   They attracted 54 cars and some real nice stuff.   They also attracted 4 horses asses, Purma (Doc Hudson), Vonlenrod, Brooks and Sproul (Norton).  

A well done bug.

Some muscle in the Park.

Check out the 56 Ford below a well known and enjoyed ride in Western Kansas.

This was new to me. It is from Ellinwood and one of the best Mustangs I have seen.  Tag says "ALLHERS.  Like to see this in Scott City next weekend.

GIbbs, Eggleston, Eikenberry, Vonleonrod, and Purma.  Nope they will not let me sit with them.  I am sure they are solving the world's problems.

37 Chevy Truck Grill.  Looks same but much bigger than car grill.

Below you will find a Torino and a 409 Chevy that are new to me.

Don Eikenberry, Scott City, brought out his Chevy that he purchased from TOM REED MUSEUM, of Kalvesta, Kansas. The car did not look like this when they made a deal.  That did not stop Tom from trying to buy it back for what he sold it for at the BLACK DOG, in Dighton, Kansas.

More cars and go-karts from Scott City, Kansas (not including Torino).  Including Doc. Purma Hudson.



There was a group from Norton and Wakeeney Area there to capture the trophies..............

A couple things of note.  There is a new bar cafe open in Dighton, Kansas.  When you are traversing Highway 96 stop in at the BLACK DOG in a take and look, drink and eat. 

Wheels In The Park had given up on trophies but decided to try CMJ MANUFACTURING., INC. of Mulvane, Kansas and it is obvious they made a good choice.

ALL OF THIS LEADS UP TO NEXT WEEKEND.  THE 40TH ANNUAL LAKE SCOTT CAR SHOW, SCOTT CITY, KANSAS.  This event starts on Friday Night with a brat and hamburger cookout and gets in full swing Saturday Morning (18 August, 2019)  Call Phil Gibbs at 620-290-2618 or Rex 620-214-9039.    

See you there or be square.

2019 Dodge City Days

Aug 04, 2019

Dodge City was a hot one and not that many cars but I had a good time.   Present were 5 Horses Asses Brooks, Brooks, Gill, Doug Marrs and newly crowned Mike Edwards. There seemed to be many potential candidates.  Take at look some of the rides on display.

Look high and low everywhere and you will not find a better 57 Chevy than this one that belongs to Randy Suchy, of Great Bend, Kansas.

Longtime Horses Ass, Doug Marrs from Hays brought his Chevelle and his Willys driving friend.  The amazing part is DOUG MARRS HAS A FRIEND!  They say they will be in Scott City.

Told you that there was some damn nice stuff there.

Nobody can miss this 1953 or 1954 Mercury.

They call the above three little pigs oops, Three Original Horses Asses in a row.

This fine GTX did not go unnoticed.

Right next door to the GTX was this 55 Olds. 

From Ulysses, Kansas, came these nearly twin mid 1960's Chevrolet Convertibles.

The two cars above belong to an old insurance adjuster, the one we love to hate.

Two Fords built for racing.

Some one made Allen and Marsha Scott, Dighton, Kansas park way out there.

Chuck and Susan Barker from Garden City, Kansas brought their Buick.

Almost forgot our Chuck found him some women that would stand close to him and show their tattoos.

Below you will see that my Older Brother had to get the NASHTY into the photo shoot scene.  Thank god he is not in the picture.

I have no idea why but I just remembered the Ghost Busters ride was there.

I think a ghosts modified that picture but I am not sure.

Who says western Kansas has no beautiful views???? Who ever said that has never stopped off at the Santa Fe Trail Historical Site west of Dodge City, Kansas.

Well I think my next stop is Bazine, Kansas.  SEE YOU THERE!


Went to Salina to the KKOA this weekend.  Hot but much to see and do. I got there in time to go to the drags but I left the camera in the car and was tooooo lazy to walk back and get it.  They say this was their 39th year. Do not forget August 16, 17 & 18, 2019 is the 40th year of the Lake Scott Car Show, Scott City, Kansas.


Friday, we did make it to Calvin's on Santa Fe, Street.  Free food, beer and bands. Got a few pictures of the doings for your perusal. 

Someday I need to learn to take  better pictures in low light.  You can see that the shawdows were already starting at about 7:00 p.m.  Made it cooler but not good for picture taking. Then there were these two sitting very near the free beer?

The one above was drag racing earlier.   Not bad for that big of a car.

Another I liked and have not see before at Calvins. (a custom Body Shop on Santa Fe Street in Salina, Ks)  There were several hundred cars and I bet nearly a 1,000 people later. we went to Chuck's Bar down the street to eat balls (that is what the big boys call them).  When I got back it was too dark for pix but I did get to drive through the crowd with the help of Calvin's lovely ASSistant.

I will start below with some of the cars I saw at Oakdale Park on Saturday.

The Garden City Gill Brothers were there for the umpteenth time.

A couple of small motor cars for your enjoyment.

YES, there were fins, and I think these were the tallest.

Look and above you you will see a Gold Chevy, 37 Chevy Sedan, White ???, Green Chopped Ford; Green Chevy and one smooth Chevy 63?

Below you will see a fine pro built Buick Sedanette (49-50), as good as it gets.

Compare the butt of the Buick with the Caddy sitting next door. I did not get good pix of the front of the Caddy but you can see it if you go back in time on this site to October, 2018 Haysville, Kansas.

How about two excellant Station Wagons, forever?

Doc Purma, Doc Hudson should have been there to see this Hudson.

You say you want chopped, look below!

Yes, I like those 49-50 Buick Sedanettes.   Need to get me one.

Need a brand new golf cart?  They got everthing including my love.

One of the best at any show is Ross and Anna Rodenbeek's Merc from Colby, Kansas.  Come see this in Scott City, KS. 8/17/2019.

There were Cadillacs Galore.  

Get your money out the Merc below is for sale!

I would call the above a combination of different pickup truck ideas.

Actually the paint is smooth on the above Ford, there is just so much flake I could not get a good picture.

Who would not want a 1956 Lincoln.  It is interesting to look at the minaturized 54 Chevy in same pix.

Never seen that color scheme. 

Another view of my girlfriend. 

A Sunday line up.  May have been winners?


I will see you later.  Right now the plan is going to Dodge City, Kansas, August 3, 2019.   Hell might go to Boot Hill for a gunfight.
