Southern invasion. The Belton Car Cuise brings in the big numbers
This may very well be the biggest monthly cruise in Kansas City. I don’t have the official count from Saturday night, but I’d guess around 300 classic cars and trucks lined Belton’s historic downtown Main Street and various parking lots and side streets nearby. It was a very impressive display.
Mid-America Chevelle Show at the Great Mall. You know the sign of a real car aficionado when he’ll spend all day at a car show, then head to another one when the first one gets over.
With beautiful weather, big numbers, and quality cars, the Belton Cruise, hosted by the South 71 Cruisers Car Club, continues to be one of the best around. But with one more of these to go for the season, October 22 will be your last chance to catch this event in 2011.
I took a lot of pictures at this event—more than 380 of them. Of course, you can look at them in the slideshow below. You’ll know it’s over when you are accosted by the final image of the gritty “Hover Motor Co.” truck.
