The 41st Annual Scott City, Kansas show came off on time with a beautiful weekend and 130 cars. We started on Friday August 15, 2020 with a free feed for the early arrivals:
As you can see Ricky Morgan. the Peltons, Vonleonrod's, Brandts', Steve Brooks, Sharp's and ect. were there for free food Friday. We even saw Steve Brooks' model A, "Brooks Justice" surprisingly pink in color, it has been a prisoner in Texas for many years.
Saturday is always the big day, take a look.
Can you identify the electric car????? That be a battery powered Tesla in the background the Red one in the foreground is electrifying but not electric.
I was glad to see Larry Hoeme brought the T-Bird that he found up north. By the way the pickup next to it is for sale.
Check out Ron Murphy's Chrysler, can you get lower? Actually, it has gotten lower since this pix.
We met some new folks from Texas. Leann and Steve from Farnsworth.
Those Farnsworth people enjoyed the city park and went to the State Park with 70 other cars.
An old friend "Gary Reppart" came to see us.
We had the same old DJ.
It has become an annual event for the Shriners to show us and sell raffle tickets on their latest aquisition.
Lets walk around for a while.
Grandma and new grandbaby went to see and point at all of the cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have seen this 58 Chevy, Mike Duerksen, Hillsboro, Kansas, many times and I expect it will be back again.
Harold Bettis from Hays showed up and brought a friend.

I will be doing Limon, Colorado, Great Bend, Kanas, Go Away Rick, Garden City, Russell, Larned and Wichita.
Chuck and I went to Smith Center, Kansas. About 200 miles one way on August 8, 2020. You saw the most interesting part of Smith Center when I posted the Lyon Saloon but they did have show.
Everybody thought this was the best there. A Mercury Cougar with a 427 stuffed in it. Not sure how he got it in there. I understand Mercury did acutually build these back in the day. They called them the Eliminator. This is not a real one but a hell of a car and the Best of Show.
How about we look around?????
Ron Kester was there from Glade, Kansas. Some of you wiil remember him building street rods until he retired. Here is a pickup he built.
The thing below is alllll metal but I am not sure what it is?
I liked this street rod. I am sure it was driven.
Bob Stockton from Kensigton, Kansas was right next to us.
And here are us.
Check out this Rat Rod Tow Truck with a BIG HOOK.
Chuck had always wanted to be between twins and he got his wish. He saw double.
Next was in the winners circle with a trophy plus.
Note who's car is in the background.
We went south out of town on HGY 281. and found this replica of the Statue of Liberty. Evidently, the Boy Scouts put up a bunch of these.
What I liked better than the statute was the scenery to the south.
We went on south and then west on HGY 24 heading home. We stopped at Nicodemous and Cottonwood Ranch but Chuck failed to get photos. Bad Chuck. It was an eventful weekend.
I think the Scott City Show is next, wait for it. I am working and going to car shows. Next is Scott City, Limon. Co., Great Ben Museum, Ricky Go Away Party, Garden City, Russell, Larned. I am heading to Wichita on October 10, 2020. Maybe I will get to work This winter. Keep looking.
