Kansas City car shows, cruises, and races for September 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 2012

There are lots of car events all over Kansas City this weekend, but most of the classic car world will be focused on Ottawa and the Ol’ Marais River Run. This is a monster show, with some 1,500 cars packing it into Forest Park. If you want to see something special, take that short trip south of town.

Other significant events of note include the Shrine Swap Meet in Lee’s Summit, the Basehor Boys cruise on Friday night, the Platte City cruise on Saturday night, and the strong cruise at the Hartman Heritage Center in Independence.
