Larned, Kansas 2019

Oct 16, 2019

The Vonleonrods and I went from Hutchinson via 4th street to Larned on October 6, 2019.  It was stormy looking on the way but cleared up.  They had a good show with approximatley 60 cars including club member cars. 

How about Gasser Style Studebaker Lark II.


Just a few general shots around the park.  Actually, two lines of cars on the north side.

The owner of this Cyclone said he owned this when he was in high school and found it, bought it back and restored it.  Unless he did not graduate high school when he was until he was 60 this car was gone for a long time.  Reminds me me of the 67 Farlaine I owned in college.

How about PT Cruisers a pair?   The first is chopped with a small block and the secondhas a matching trailer.

How some grills, not Gills they were in Arkansas.

That last grill is a 57 Ford Convertible, belonging to Brock McPherson of Great Bend, Kansas. It was voted  Best of Show.

I told you Sheila, Mark and Jake were there.  That Road Runner was a trophy winner that weekend, Best Mopar Hutchinson and Best Mopar and Top Ten in Larned.




just started and will return  



I went to Hutchinson, Kansas for the 12th Annual Downtown Rod Run & Classic Car Show 2019, and saw rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday..  It was not raining all day and there were a lot of nice cars.   SEE?

66 Charger, Yellow and Black, 55 Chevy Wagon!  Told you so.

Mustang, Chevelle, Plymouth Fury.   Not done with the good stuff.

There was a Bullet Nose Rat Rod Studebaker, but I forgot to take a picture of the nose.

Did I say we were there?

Mark and Sheila Vonleonrod 69 Road Runner, Short and Deb Lawrence 30 Ford Coupe and Jake and the 37

This is one rare 57 Ford, notice the super charger and the writing on the firewall.

More sweet Ford products. Including a 58 Ford Retrack and a Merc Wagon.


A Chrysler Imperial and 50's Chevrolet with the custom touch.

Below a sign on a door I like.  Call em up.


There were sales going on in most of the stores downtown.  The ladies loved it and I found a treasure.

Mark and his Road Runner had to show off the Iron they got at the show.

I could not decide on which butt represented "The End" at this show, so I will let you decide and I will not try to influence your decision?

Sheila, Mark and I went to Larned on Sunday.  I should get that post up soon.

If you make it to Haysville on October 19, 2019, you may see some Horses Asses.

As always Goodland, Kansas held its Flandlanders Festival the last weekend of September.  They challenged the weather and this time it was not the best of weather but still 200+ cars showed up.

Saturday morning started out below 50 degrees.  That did not prevent them from having a crowd of cars and onlookers:

There was a line of cars containing some Horses Asses. My count of Horses Asses was five including Brooks, Brooks, Sharp, Sharp, and Arnold. 

How about some grills.

You have seen this Grill many times. Ross and Anna Rodenbeck correctly decided to drive up and down the street rather than walk in the cold weather.

You are looking at one very nice 1953 Buick Riveria.

Yellow was a popular color.

How about an original 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire and a 4 door Edsel.  These are damn nice cars.  When was the last time you saw 1962 Starfire ????????

I sure wish I was a CUDA!

Remember the American Motors Marlin?  Here is a 66 and 67.

How about a 1934 Plymouth Coupe with cross ram 2 fours.

Ok, was this an aircraft show or car show.  How about an aircraft tow vehicle and Pickup with a radial aircraft engine?


The last vehicle is actually a Suburban.

I always liked the 1966 Charger, a model of its own.

The red and black car had a tag that said "make of car"  GUESS.   The emblem on the grill says AUSTIN, I know no more.

All you old car showers ought to be shopping for a new scooter like this?

Not a part of the show but a permanent fixture in Goodland, Matt Murray's parts cars.

Talking about fixtures Goodland has some interesting architecture.

The last two are the 1901 Telephone Building being restored.  These pictures do not include the Carnige Art Center, Giant Van Gough Painting or Mary Seaman Emmit Victorian House.

My two granddaughters were there, Claire and Brook,  they had different opinions about the success of the show?

I will go to Hutchison, Kansas October 4-5-& 6. ( You would like it.
