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. 

Chuck Gill and I went to Smith Center on September 8, 2020 for their run.  Never been to the run nor the Town. Found this Mural on the side of Pooches Bar and Grilll  (good steak and chicken fry). Found something wonderful.  Below you see the Mural on the side of Pooches.

Not excited yet,  wait until you see who did the mural. She runs the Lyon Saloon. Lets see what the Lyon Saloon Looks like on the outside first?????

Not Excited, Neither was Chuck Gill.  The only bar I had to talk Chuck in to entering. Lets peek inside.

Reasonable entrance sign and Tumlelier?   Excited yet?? Lets stubble in further.

Are you getting more interested, remember this is in Smith Center Kansas.  Now lets look at some of the artwork? Starting with the floor.

To the walls!

How about other decorations?

Hell I forgot about the Muralist.  Before the Mural.

After the Mural.

How about more Back Bar??????????????????????????????

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS!

The Cars decided to pose beside the building before we left.

I KNOW THIS SITE IS ALL ABOUT THE HORSES ASSES AND THE CAR SHOWS THEY GO TO.  I WILL SHOW THE SMITH CENTER SHOW IN NEXT POST.

Do not forget the Lyon Saloon the next time you are in Smith Center.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Two Horses Asses went to Oakley on Friday July 31, 2020 (yup I am that far behind it is now September 11, 2020).  Anyway it was great weather and we stopped at KEYSTONE GALLERY on the way. 

This is about 20 miles north of Scott City on HGY 83.  It is worth a stop.  It even has a website not as good as them Horses Asses.

We went on to Oakley and spent some time at their Friday Night party, but got hungry and went on to CAPT'N JACKS.

Good eatin in an old barn with rain and a rainbow before we left.

On to the show in the morning.  Parked with some Horses Asses.

Take a look at the show.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN BRUCE FLIPSE'S LINCOLN AND ROSS RODENBEEK'S MERCURY ON THIS SITE.  I promise no more for this post.

How about a nice 55 Chevy and a Ford Shelby?

Don Eikenberry, the one with the pretty legs, taking it easy. He is the builder of the Chevy below.

Another Car from Scott City,.  This one belongs to Jerome Berning.

Pickup and Merc belongin to Rex Grothusen and Doc Purma,  being guarded by Doc and the Kid below the cars.

I liked this wagon, New to Me.  It was painted by famous customizer GENE WINFIELD.

A Chevy and a Ford as different as can be but I like both. Cannot get much bigger than a 1959 Lincoln.

I like what Trent Blythe builds.

MORE HORSES ASSES.  Roger Blume, Goodland,(Grand Am) and Scott Schultz, St. Francis (GTO Judge).

The Nemachek's and McClanahan's were there.  You do not see this model Dodge convertible nor a Pontiac wagon many places.

This AMX should have won a safety award for its covid-10 mask.

How about two pickups?

I am not a motor cycle guy and this is not the site for such,  BUT you ought to look at the paint job on this>

This car, 1958 Buick, was not actually registered nor in the park but I sure did like it.

If I am couting right Smith Center is next.  I have a surprise for you.
