  5. 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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :).
