Used to be Starbird, Used to be Devlin,  still in Wichita every year around the 3rd weekend of January, now CARS FOR CHARITIES SHOW. I went and collected a few pix for the Horses Asses.

Lets start out with a delimma.  Is this real?  A 1964 two door Chevy Wagon??????

How about a 2 door hardtop wagon, Olds 57 (I think?).  Is that real?  Either way one of my favorites.

Can you beat this 50 buick Convertible?

A 32 with Eikenberry and Brittan looking on,  which of the three is older?

This may be the "Little Nash Rambler" from the Song.  Where is the "Hot Rod Lincoln"?

I guessing 36 Ford, I know it is a Panel and voted a Magnificent 7.

I think that FALCON is Purple.

Is there a Horses Ass that can paint like this?????

Those are some fast Fords

This is as straight as I have ever seen.  I would like someone to buy my a Riveria.

If this guy has not been recognized or crowned a Horses Ass, we should do that.  Mick Franklin of Salina with his Husdon Pickup.  Ask him about his motor.   Ain't gonna believe it  but you will wonder WHY!

This 1957 Chevy was built by Ron Tittle from Russell. I mean he built it all, interior and exterior, over many years.  Understandably it was honored as a Magnificent 7.

This is one good looking grill.  41 Chevy.

Customs of the Chevrolet and Volkswagon variety!

I looked for a 37 Coupe, there were none but there was a nice sedan was present.

Rumor has it this Buick has givenEleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Regan a ride.  HIGH FALOOTEN?

A nice 1934 Ford that I could not get a good Picture of because of the informative sign.

It is not often that you see a real 64  425 Hemi 4 speed Cornet.  Am I right Mark??

This is the second Edsel wagon I have seen in the last year.  Are they still building them?

Two damn nice 62 Chevys.  Note, the one on the left. Look toward the back of the hood.  There are no wipers or wiper arms unless they are hidden

Above is one nice 1967 Ford Fairlane XL500.  Not many around. I had one in 1971, I wish I had back instead of wrapped around a tree.

I was told they had 325 cars. A little smaller than last year but they had nice cars.  Before I left I met a guy named Ruben at EMERSON BIGGINS.   Think about it.   

Nope this is not about cars.  I discovered during a visit at the local watering hole the world's only operating  Big Boy Steam Locomotive No. 4014 was going across Western Kansas November 20 - 21 - 22 - 23. 2019.  So  Jerrie and I headed to Quniter, Kansas and took some pictures. 

Our first sign it was a coming eventhough about 30 minutes late was steam in the sky.  I bet this is about 2 miles away.

The engine came into sight, heading for Quinter, Kansas.  I was told it ran between 50 and 60 MPH because of the condition of the track and the weight of the train.

At some locations you could tour the EXPERIENCE UNION PACIFIC to learn more, but not at Quinter.

Here is some Idea of size.  Two sets of three drive wheels on each side about my height. You good looking girls can guess at this.

The name also gives some sense of its size.

It was built when and where?

Let us look down the side.

After about 30 minutes it built up steam and blew the whistle, dang it was loud (this is a family post or I could be more descriptive).

For a while the train and the people standing there were invisable and then the train slowly reappeared and went west heading for Oakley, Kansas.

Haysville, Kansas 2019

Oct 23, 2019

Chuck and I went to Haysville, Kansas on October 19, 2019 for the first year of their one day show at Riggs Park.   There were approximatley 180 cars.  Take a look.

Everybody likes 57 Chevys, but it would have been hard to pick the best there.

I traded eating at El Dos, Scott City, with many Horses Asses (Pelton, Sharp, Arnold, Vonleonrod) for driving 250 miles one way to spend the whole day with two Horses Asses (Dee and Chuck Gill).

Everybody knows, the engine, motor, muscle, mill, internal combustion, tri-power, dual quad, big block, blown, hopped up, small block, stroked, crate is the heart of all hot rods.

How about the King of Rat Rods?????

Second in Rat Rod Class was a van that Cheech and Chong brought?

There were not very many street rods but there were a couple of good ones.

How about a special Oldsmobile?

The Haysville show in Riggs Park sports has very special scenery, take a look.

You thought I was talking about a different type of scenery? Did you not??????

I spotted 2 excellent Camaros.

The above 36? Ford is bright in color but I like it a lot.

I told you in the Larned Post that the Dotys from Hays, Kansas came to Haysville.  This time they brought not only the 58 Pickup but also their 46 Delivery.

Scroll down and you will see muscle from the 60's and at least one 70's represented at Haysville.

Everything at the Haysville show centers around the Gazebo like in Scott and this is where I had to go to get my door prize.  Just telling you what you missed.

Take a look at the Rat Rod Pickup, the Olds Custom with a Straight 8 and 67 Ford Fairlane XL 500 with a 289.

Somebody was already on to Halloween!!!

Here on, by popular demand I have begun ending posts with a woman's back side.  This time I found some real fine tails.   Have a gander or goose below.


I have heard about a show at Douglass, Kansas on November 23, 2019 but the chance of good weather is sketchy.  I expect I will see you in 2020.
