Kansas City Auto Show, Basehor Cruise, and Snake Saturday. The Kansas City car show, cruise, and race calendar for March 7-11, 2012

Hey, look at this! We’ve finally got enough events going on in one weekend that it was worth putting a car show calendar together! Slowly but surely, the car show season is beginning to spring up in Kansas City.

Of course, the big deal is the Greater Kansas City International Auto Show. If you like new cars, this is a good opportunity to check out cars from nearly every manufacturer. The occasional concept car or exotic pops up here from time-to-time too.

But that’s not all. Local race cars always make a strong showing at the C.A.R.B. Race-On Car Show during the Snake Saturday Parade, and there is a classic car cruise scheduled for Friday night at the Sonic in Basehor. So de-winterize the old hot rod and get out there. It’s been a long winter!
