The only thing out of control at the Outta' Control Hot Rods Cruise in Platte City was the weather
This was my last chance to take my 2013 Corvette Grand Sport loaner to an event before General Motors came and took it away forever, so I drove BHo to the land of Sonny Hill with the fiberglass roof panel stored neatly in the rear hatch area. Of course, I hadn’t thought to secure all the flyers that I picked up at the Corvette show earlier in the day, so once we hit 70 on 435, there was a tsunami of car show propaganda blasting all over the cockpit and out in the atmosphere. If I miss your event on the next weekly calendar, this may be the reason.
This cruise also featured a bunch of ’61-’66 Ford trucks from the Slick ‘60s Ford Truck Club. I am actually leaving those pictures out of this slideshow, however, because I covered their appearance in a separate story.
I managed to click off 120 pics or so before it rained, and you can see them in the slideshow below. Or, click on this link for a nicer version.
