Outta' Control Hot Rods car cruise in Platte City was not as unruly as the name implies
But then I remembered that the name of the host car club is "Outta' Control Hot Rods and Cruisers," and I started getting worried. I mean, I don't know if I'm wild enough to hang out with people that are so out of control that they name themselves something like that.
She never got out of the van, though. And you know why? Everything was pretty much under control. The crowd wasn't unruly at all. No one torched the Pizza Shoppe or tried to shake down the folks working in the Mr. Goodcents. I never noticed a drive-by shooting or a violent tussle. There wasn't even any public nudity.
Of course, they were fighting ridiculous heat. And as you can see by the events calendar I post on here every week, there are lots of other places for people to take their old cars. But still, this was a pretty huge event as recently as last year, and there's no reason it can't be again. Outta' Control Hot Rods is a new host club, and they're still trying to get their legs under them. But all the ingredients are there for a popular monthly event.
But the July cruise is over. Did you miss it? Well, you lucked out this time, because I took a bunch of pictures, which you can see in the slideshow below. But don't expect me to bail you out in the future.
