Car Shows Coming Up


I hope that you are all are having a fabulous holiday weekend! Already looking forward to the next weekend? If you like old cars and live in the Kansas City area, you might want to make some plans for the next weekend.

There are always car shows going on in and around the Kansas City metro, but I want to tell you about two of them coming up.

The High Performance Auto Club, Kansas City's Chrysler brand club will be having its big annual show "Midwest Mopar Family Reunion" on July 10-11 at EH Young Riverside Park in Riverside, MO. Things start happening at about 9 AM Saturday and the two days of show will wrap up around 3 PM Sunday. Check out show details here at http://www.hpacmopar.com/HPACshow.html

Also next weekend, the Church of the Resurrection will have its car show. This is on Saturday, July 10th from 9 AM to 1 PM at the Leawood church, about 137th and Roe. This is their 9th annual, and they always have a good turnout of all makes of cars. For information http://www.cor.org/

Of course every Friday, there is a cruise at 91st and Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park at the Long Branch. Starts around about 6 PM or so and is open to all. So come on out and see the great old cars next weekend!

Dear The Observer,
OOOOHHHHH that Plymouth! It looks like a car on its way to the Love Shack.

"I got me a car, it's as big as a whale, and it's about to set sail . . ."

Have fun this weekend!
Happy Fourth of July to You!

Nothing, but NOTHING cries out AMERICANA more than our love of the automobile...and the events that showcase them.

The people are fantastic, the cars works of art, and that's something I got to see "up close" when I moved to the Midwest.
Have a fantastic 4th...and drive safely.

Ann T and Bob G:
Yes, we do love our cars! It's such fun to see the old buggies.

Lately, too, a new generation of car enthusiasts is starting to appreciate the older vehicles. They bring a different style sometimes, but it seems the car brings everyone together. It's really cool to see the 20 something and the 60 something together talking over the car...

Thanks for swinging on by--have a wonderful week!
