    My brother and I are thinking about driving out to Salina to catch the KKOA Leadsled Spectacular this year. Has anyone been or have picture of previous events? Share your stories and experiences. Thanks.

    I drove over 700 miles for last year's show. I enjoyed myself greatly. Just watch out for the unsavory characters that are native to the area. DO NOT trust anybody that lives within 100 miles of Salina, KS.

    If you want photos, contact Travisfromkansas on here.

    Relax about the Bobwop comment -----------he is joking. He is good at putting his foot in his mouth. Speaking of his big damn foot-----he ran over it last year at the drags with his own car! hard to do actually......the guy has talent.....ha ha.

    I would like to return this year, as the show promises to be better.

    It would make sense for me to put my wallet in my front pocket to keep it from getting stolen, but then I would actually feel the butt-grabbing.

    bad enough a guy gets his leg rubbed.

    all BS aside, a great show, one of my favorites.

    It would be hard for me or you to do, but, with a guy that has basically the same dimensions as bigfoot, I could see it happening.......

    meeting great guys like Chris (Abomb) and Bruce (EnginePro5X) were highlights for me. Running into old friends like Denise (Hotrodladycrusr), Gary (Hotrodroadster) and Rob Lee (rob lee) is always an unexpected treat. Hanging out with guys like Paul (povertyflats) and Dick (cuzndeke), well what can I say.

    awesome hotrods and customs

    way cool flag-drop racing on Friday night.

    Seeing as I've just spent the majority of my annual bonus on my "new" 55, I should be making a return trip this year....time will tell, but I bet the 55 Chevy makes it down the race track, instead of sitting in the parking lot like the 55 Buick.

    I went for the first time last year. Drove my 54 Chevy from Ne Oklahoma to Salina and promptly broke down 20 miles before getting there. (Fuel Pump problem that had me scratching my ass for 2 days.) I had so so many people help me, drive me to a parts store, trouble shoot and even had Janet (Can't remember her real name) from the show "Three's Company" come out of her room numerous times to offer drinks and help as well.. Had a great time. We got her running witht a 6 volt electric fuel pump on day 2 and had a blast the rest of the time. Next time I'll take along a lot of extra parts and plan to stay at the same host hotel again. Great great people and a lot of fun.
