    How many of these were held in Des Moines back in the early - mid 80's? I went to one of them, just can't recall the year. Might even have some old pics around somewhere as well.

    Of all the KKOA shows I attended, 82 was the best. All the cars were parked in the grass. And because it was my first big show I attended. Another one of Walt`s Chevy sitting next to my Dad`s Vicky( first version) in the Host hotel parking lot. I enjoyed the Howard(hotels) Johnsons Parking lot as much as the show it self.

  20. Great pics!!! Wish I'd made it to any of those shows back then. I loved the Hangin' Dice shows but never made it to a Spectacular.

    Funny you ask. That is my Mom. She is 78 now. Her and dad were in Salina this past year along with the Vicky. Dad has been to every KKOA show in Salina along with me with our cars. Mom has recently started going in the last 5 years. Another shot from 84. Scan0650.jpg

    Great stiff. I remember some of those cars from the magazine coverage.
    I always thought you were supposed to take the window sticker off and put it in the photo album in the lead spot for the photos you took at the event after you finally afforded to get them developed.

  29. So Jim, do you have the pics on the walls in groups and labeled which shows they are or do you just remember? I can't remember breakfast this morning, so I am always amazed at your recall.
