AACA Antique Car Show at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Lawrence is a nice change from the typical car show
This is more of an original old car show. Heck, this is an original old car guy’s show. It represents one of the best facets of the old car hobby, and a group of people that unfortunately seems to be fading away as time goes on.
I visited Dean Weller’s amazing car collection a few miles down the road from where this show took place. When you get done, you really should click on that link, but the gist is that at 86-years-old, Dean literally hand forms and builds cars like this all by himself in his shop. This car wasn’t even close to being done when I saw it, and the only reason I even recognized it is that Dean showed me a sketch of what he wanted it to look like while I was there. Just knowing the story, I absolutely loved seeing this car completed and out on display.
