Kansas City car shows and cruises for October 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 2013

Well, here we are.  The last Kansas City car show calendar of the year.  Now we need to get ready for cold weather, snow, Christmas, and everything else that messes up our car plans.  My wife, for one, will be very happy about this.  Me—not so much.  Of course, this means you had better get out there and do something while you can.  You can choose from cruises in Leavenworth and Belton, car shows at a Topeka Sonic and Gearheadz Garage, or the Man Cave (this one actually continues throughout the winter.

See the entire Kansas City car show and cruise calendar for October 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 in the schedule below.  And especially this time of year, don’t forget to call ahead if the weather is questionable.
