Excellent weather brought an excellent turnout to the 2nd Saturdays cruise in North Kansas City
There is also a car cruise involved with this monthly event. Now, when I see an ad in the Pitch or INK, I worry that I really shouldn't be there. I mean, there's an excellent chance that I'm not cool enough to hang with the trendy, young hipsters that they tend to feature in those publications.
The last couple of months they've been a little light on the car count, but that definitely wasn't the situation this past Saturday. The weather was ridiculously nice, and it had a very positive impact of the number of people willing to put their prized rides on display.
My favorites included a '41 Chevy convertible that was done in sort of a "resto-mod" fashion, but it still included a bunch of period accessories like a rare Deluxe steering wheel, the correct fog lights, and dual spot lights.
Tri-Five Chevys were also a big draw at this show, with at least seven of them in the lot by my count. Of course, not to be out done, there was one '57 Ford Fairlane.
The slideshow below should give you a pretty good idea about the lay of the land at this month's 2nd Saturday in North Kansas City car cruise. In the meantime, I'll be looking at the latest edition of INK to see what other cultural events I can crash.
