I am planning on being there! Can't wait!
i am planning to make the trip myself, never been before, is there an entry fee for spectators? what is to be expected from this show? number of cars... etc. like i said im a newbie to this show. thanks!
Lots of Kustoms.
A chop topping...ehr...a top chopping. Couple of bands. Art auction. Hanging with friends. Seeing new cars. Meeting "celebrities".
OK Newbie, see ya there.
I have been looking at all the post and pics of past years looks like a lot of fun cant wait!
This is one of my favorite shows. Hundreds of customs. Usually a couple big names doing their magic on somebody's car, others under a shelter and scattered about willing to talk and autograph. Plenty of vendors and food. Stripers and live music. Model cars. A retrospective of a big name with some of the actual cars there. Setting in a shaded park. Think it was 10 bucks last year. Really one of the best custom shows there is.
I plan on being there this year! It will be my first time to go to the salina show. Cant wait to meet fellow HAMBers. I will be driving up my buddies 40 ford truck that is for sale on ebay.
I'll be there if at all possible and I think it is
#### And I thought I was the only one with the LAME ASS EXCUSES !!!! >>>>.
I believe general admission for the public is $12 and although the drags are free I believe there is a $5 parking fee. I have also been known to be wrong about 50% of the time.
I'm driving the Model A up Saturday. It'll be my first time at this show. Looking forward to it!
OK, I went and regsitered my car. It cost $43 at the show. It would have been $38 online earlier. Cost $5 more now. It is cheaper for KKOA members. The drags are indeed 6 PM on Friday night and it cost $5 per car load for parking for spectators.
Wouldn't miss it!
I think that spectators at the show entry is $10 per day for 12 and up
I will be there!
I just looked at my entry sheet. 'tators' are $12.

coming in on I-70 from topeka. not able to leave until about 5:30 this evening. whats the best way to get to the spot where the drag racing will be without getting to lost? or whats the exact address i tried to google it but i couldnt find it. thanks.
It sure sounds like a ton o fun. I for sure want to make it next year.
Boohoo I need to clone myself
Ya'll have fun and take lots of pics, I'm depending on you!
From Topeka on 70 take the Ohio Exit (flyin J truckstop) then go south on Ohio until you get to Crawford Street (about 5 miles I think) Then head left (east) up Crawford to Markley Rd. The drags are about 1 mile south.
Googlemap the Salina Municipal Golf Course, the drags are at the south end of the old runways that sit next to the golf course.
im in. kirk and I are coming
Thanks for the help with me getting there later in the evening i dont wanna run all the time ill have to swing in and watch down searching for the place.
Hey folks! Great to meet the handfull of you that I did get to meet today, I apologize in advance if I do not remember your face in the future, that is a bad habit of mine.
I took about 400 pics today and only covered about 2/3 of the cars, I will start the upload process tonight when I get home from DJing at the club, so expect to see a link tomorrow.
My dad bought some panels at the auction, I've already made a case to him that one or two of them should live at my house....we'll see how that goes .
