Shiny bikes and acres of leather at the 2012 Wide Open Bike and Car Show
In spite of the unusually nice winter weather, we haven’t had a car show in the Kansas City area for quite some time. So when the Wide Open Magazine Bike and Car Show turns up on the calendar each January, people are typically ready to go see a room full of shiny objects.
This year, the show moved from its traditional location at the Kansas City Market Center to the Overland Park International Trade Center. And from the looks of things, the spectator turnout was quite a bit greater.
If you can’t wait until next year to see one of these shows in person, they’re having another one on February 11-12 at the Family Arena in St. Louis. For the more patient folks in the crowd, hopefully the slideshow below will hold you over. Just be sure to wear your leather riding gloves while operating your computer mouse.
