2016 Lamar Days

May 22, 2016

Ron Cook organizes a good show each year during Larmar Days, Colorado.  This year he had a lot of different cars and many, many many towns folk going through the show.  Take a look.

I recognize Kenny Snow and Jack Arnold.  Oh, Dan Doporn is seated with his back to you, or at least that is what Ron called him when he presented his trophy. Rick and Bonnie Morgan of Eads, Colorado were in attendance. Bonnie and Rick Morgan collecting a trophy.
One of the reasons (along with Bonnie's beauty) that Rick and Bonnie always get a Trophy. Norman Parker's 1957 Mercury from Dighton, Kansas, was there.

Smoken Joe's, a tow truck from Aurora, Colorado won everthing but my girlfriend's heart, and she is waivering.  Yup, I took a picture of the whole truck but someone must have bumped my camera.  Can't be my fault!  

I learned that there was and still is a  bulding built of Petrified Wood in Lamar in 1933.  I found the building and took a few pictures.  I bet you have driven by it several times without notice. 

Obviously, I could not get a good picture, but I took a picture of a picture.

Don't know if it is possible, but maybe the owner of this building would agree to let the building be used as a picture background during next year's run.  I am good at making more work for others.

While searching for the above I noticed a sign of significance in a local LOVE'S store.  Yes, Bonnie and Beth, I know that is a URINAL in the Men's Bathroom.  Don't worry, I made sure it was flushed before I used it.

A little further down the road is an iconic building having great meaning in The Horses Asses history. Let me know if it is remebered.  What was the name of the establishment. A few hints: will not serve you anymore, banging your elbow on the table does not help, thrown on the front of a bus, parole officer jacket, step up (literally) to the toilet.  What a nice place.

The weather on the way home was, as always, threatening.  How about a couple pictures out the window, at 60 - 65 mph south of Scott City.

I will quit and will let you go about your business if you answer my qeustions.  Remember there are shows at Grainfield on May 29, 2016 and Tribune on June 4, 2016. 

We made it to St. Francis, Ks. on May 13 & 14, 2016.   It was not as warm as we wanted but there were 100+ vehicles and great hospitality. Toured the new MOTORCYCLE MUSEUM, which was well worth it, even if you are not a motorcyle freak.  Check out a few pictures of the show.

I had one of them these a 67 Fairlane XL in 1971.  A tree got in the way. This one is from Akron, Co. and a good one.


  Three pieces of Horses Ass "Scott Schultz" iron.

The ACCUSED had to bring the Pole Girl since St. Fanrcis does not have that type of entertainment.  Not close enough to Oklahoma.

Horses Asses, Arnold and Pelton were there but stayed on the other side of the park.

Oh, by the way we found a brand new HORSES ASS skulking around the park.  Here is Randy 'RAT ROD' 'OLD RUSTY' Railey with his new trophy and two people he is beholden to.  WHERE ARE YOUR DUES?

Kent Ketcher was the last Horses Ass named in St. Francis.  At Least Kent shaves. 

ON MAY 5, 6 & 7, 2016, the Yellow Brick Road Car Show took place in Liberal, Kansas.   The celebraion started out on May 5, with a tour of the 32 Ford collection of Greg Morris, of Hugoton, Kansas.  I did not get to attend the tour but I  understand that this is a great collection.   If you have some pix I should share on the site please send them.

I made it to Liberal on Friday the 6th for the party at Billy's Blue Duck BBQ.   There was a great crowd, food, good weather and live music. Take a look at some the cars that showed up to the doings:

There were nearly 400 cars registered and here are a few picutres from the park on Saturday.

Yes, Yes, Yes there were some Horses Asses Cars (Roger Blume, Scott Schultz; Rick and Bonny Morgan were presnt) there and I will get to them next:

  How do you like the new addition to Brother's Canadian Pontiac.  This is in honor of Roger Blume's friend employed just across the border in Oklahoma??  That red Falcon pictured above was the property of Horses Ass, Bev Posson" and was brought to the show by Mike Posson.

Also, Present was one of the first Honorary Horses Asses.  He was so embarrassed that he moved to Oklahoma and only returns to Kansas under color of darkness.    Here is Otis (Tin Man I am Tired of being the Butt of Your Jokes) Thomas.
