The KC Classic Auto Display in Lenexa officially brings Christmas vacation to an end
In a last ditch effort to incorporate a car activity that doesn't involve buying gasoline, Dad and I made a stop at the KC Classic Auto Display in Lenexa to see what vehicular treasures were in stock.
The KC Classic Auto Display has been in this old industrial building for many, many years. Occasionally, they'll get something that'll knock your socks off, but usually they stock a bunch of B-list muscle cars and cruise night specials. Some of them are offered for sale by the business itself, some are sold on consignment, and some are just being stored for the winter.
There was even a celebrity in the house. Usually I wouldn't even give an '85 Subaru Brat a mention, but this one was actually used as Joy's car in the TV show My Name is Earl. I read that earlier in the year they were selling a bunch of Hollywood star cars at last May's Mecum Spring Classic auction in Indianapolis, including the My Name is Earl El Camino and a couple of Mercedes from The Hangover, so I'm guessing the Brat came from there.
I went ahead and snapped some shots of the good stuff, which you may browse below. Taking pictures in that building is a little like taking a picture of the Velveeta in the fridge when the door is closed, but you can probably at least make out most of them.
Heck, I'll probably be looking at this photo album tomorrow from my office computer, remembering with fondness the long vacation ... that went by much too quickly.
