Kansas City car shows, car cruises, car races, and swap meets for August 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 2013

We’ve got a pretty long calendar of car events for this weekend in Kansas City, so let’s get started.  As usual, you can go to the Man Cave and buy some parts at that indoor swap meet on Wednesday, but this weekend you can also travel to Lathrop and check out the huge, bi-annual Shrine Swap Meet.  The Basehor Boys Cruise is scheduled for Friday night, and the Hartman Heritage Center is kickin’ it on Saturday.  You can see Thunderbirds at the O’Reilly Auto Parts in Blue Springs, or Falcons at the City Market.

See the entire Kansas City-area car show, car cruise, swap meet, and car racing schedule for August 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 in the calendar below.
