Sparkling street rods at the ASRA Cruisin' KC Car Show in Riverside
When we drove to the entrance of the park, a nice gentleman walked up to my window and asked for $7.00 per person to go check out the show. I glanced over at my wife, who had absolutely no interest in being there, and decided to take her home instead of paying the extra seven bones. I’m not saying that I’m cheap, but, well, I’m cheap. It takes like a month for these line ads to add up to $7.00 on this blog. I’m not wasting the money on someone who doesn’t want to do it.
It seems like there was quite a bit of promotion. I ran across the listing everywhere I looked when I was putting the weekly calendar together. And there were signs and posters all over the dang place.
The thing just has a “feel” of some outside organization trying to make money as opposed to a fun, locally centralized event. I don’t know what the answer is. Maybe they could work with a local charity, or get some heavy cooperation from a local car club. I know these types of events need to charge fees to make them possible. Sometimes the presentation just needs to be tweaked to really make them successful.
I managed to squeeze out a cool 150 pictures from the Cruisin’ KC Car Show, and you can see them all in the slideshow below.
