One last HAMB check before we head east. On to Salina! Hope to see y'all out there! E
Please post photos! Road trips and the show for us who won’t be making it
Dan from 2019
Be there Saturday. Can't wait !
On the way to Abilene, KS to the Brookville Hotel for fried chicken dinner a few years ago ... sad to say I think the business closed for good, a victim of loss of business due to covid.
Talkin' cars with Gene Winfield ... Russ and Summer Eggleston, builders of this fun kustom show-rod.
A few years ago, southern Nebraska and northern Kansas on Hiway 281, encountered an inordinate number of these butterflies. Never seen so many. All over the road, I mean everywhere. The ones that didn't fly up and hit your car would get run over, killed by tires or undercarriage. The dead ones on the road would be swept along in the backwash of semi trucks, tumbling down the road like a dust cloud.
Had to hit the car wash in Salina to clean car AND avoid overheating due to plugged radiator.
Dang! That’s quite the collection!
Well, not sure what this weekend holds for me yet. Silas still wants to go and I got my 56 back together Monday night. We will see...lots going on and I probably shouldn’t even be considering...
Kool bug collection. See ya guys in a few days.

My truck is gassed up. It's getting a bath and I hit the road in the morning. I'm looking forward to a couple of days of hot rods and good conversation.
Still not positive if I am going...but did drive the car to work today to make sure it is ready for the 3 hour drive.
Looks like Mcphail’s had some visitors on their way to the show!
Hope y'all have a great time! Wish I was going, but this year it's not going to work out.
Depends on the heat , me and 105 with humidity don't get along well anymore.
Just a short 4 hr putt for me.
Any body got a REAl forecast for Friday Saturday?
Any updates? Any roadtrip/travel pictures? Looking forward to some coverage. Thanks.
My only update is that I will be heading up sometime today. I did decide to change up what I am driving though. I’ll be in my daily driver t-bird for a faster trip up with better gas mileage than my 56.
Headed that way!
it’s Salina weekend so I’m gonna say you have a 99.999999% chance it will be bath tub full of sweat hot. 91 with out the heat index here in kc a couple hours east
Definitely HOT...but, lots of kool cars and have seen lots of great friends.
