Everyone happy at the Basehor Boys Park in the Park car show except Mother Nature
Billed as, "similar to Ottawa cruise," The Basehor Boys were setting their sights pretty high when they modeled their event after the southern extravaganza. And they had a lot of the correct ingredients. The Basehor City Park is a very nice, tranquil setting. The Boy Scouts were busily cookin' up some vittles. And they had music scheduled by the local bluegrass band "The Fairmounters".
Still, the hearty bunch that was there when we stopped by seemed to be making the most of it. Wrapped up in their Snuggies and parkas, people seemed to deal with the weather hiccup just fine. Everyone was happy, everyone was checking out the cars, and like I've said before, the smaller turnout made everything just a bit more relaxed and enjoyable.
And anyway, there was a '57 Chevy, a '69 Camaro, and a '40 Ford, so it met the criteria for a full-fledged car show. Actually, there were several interesting cars to look at. You didn't see many real high-end cars there thanks to the threatening skies, but what they had were representing the old car hobby very well.
As usual, I took a few pictures from the Basehor Boys Park in the Park Car Show, and you can check them out below. And hopefully, they can continue this tradition and have an even bigger turnout next year. Maybe one of the Basehor Boys should spring for some flowers for Ma Nature next Mother's Day.
