Big Car Show at the Great Mall of the Great Plains was an excellent way to begin the summer finale countdown
This was a benefit for the Olathe Police Foundation, so there were some Olathe Police vehicles on hand, including a pretty official-looking ATV, a mobile command center, a motorcycle, and some police cars. There were even a couple of privately owned police cars on display.
But there were plenty of civilian rides shining under the bright Kansas sun as well. A Ford GT was a big hit with the crowd. It looked just like new, except the wax job was better. And of course, there was the expected assortment of hot rods, Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs, and Tri-Five Chevys. The Lincoln Continental that was used in the Fox 4 TV Morning Show commercials was even there, so there was a genuine celebrity in the crowd.
There are pictures of most of the cars from this event in the slideshow below.
