    So it's a week late but here we go! My Labor Day weekend in Kansas City started off Friday morning when my uncle Paul (povertyflats) and I headed out from Gypsum for KC.

    We stopped for lunch in Lawrence with BlacktopBuddha and his daughter at a great mexican joint, then it was off to the Kansas Speedway for the Goodguys show.

    I wasn't going to enter... but logistics and the cost of entry for 3 days just convinced me to go full tilt, get the big boy package and let's see what Goodguys has to offer. The price was steep at $90 but it is very expensive to rent race tracks, produce magazines and the like, so I'm not complaining...much.

    The cars weren't overflowing the speedway at any point during the weekend but it was 106 degrees when I finally emerged from the tunnel into the track's infield.

    This ride isn't exactly H.A.M.B. friendly but take the skull off the radiator and paint it and I wouldn't mind taking it for a spin.

    Dude, I don't want or need any of your crap on this thread. You need to get a life, nobody wants your one man crusade against Goodguys. I can tell you just search daily for the phrase so that you can trash them, it's damn sad. I'll shut this thread down before I allow your childish posts to continue. Period.

    The $90 covered a year subscription, a poster, a hat, entry into the show for 3 days at a NASCAR track, track time in my car (which I passed on), plus a year book and a Goodguys membership. I don't feel that it was a bad deal at all or else I could have just not paid it. I figured lets see what they got for this price and after a year I will decide if I was short changed or not.

    Part 2 of the KC Goodguys coverage continues on in the sweltering Friday heat. We had some records set this year for most days over 100 degrees since 1936 or something like that. My electric bill certainly shows that I was losing the battle on the heat front.

    [​IMG]

    I see this car all over and I'm always glad to check it out.

    Fell in love right here...

    Gotta love this magical mystery Merc Wagon
    [​IMG]

    Ok, so it's neither rod nor kustom but something about it tripped my kool circuit breaker.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Love the Cameo's thanks to Dad having a couple of them (that need some time in the resto shop)
    [​IMG]

    Some may see the patina and call this a rat of sorts, call it what you want, it's one of my favorite combos to photograph at any show I see it at. The bike is just outstanding, the car is kool as hell and the trailer ain't bad either. Plus you throw in a kool guy that owns it and what more can ya really ask for?

    [​IMG]

    Like I said before, love the Rivi's!!!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The lil wagon is too cute.
    [​IMG]

    Another way kustom Merc.

    yes sir we will be there....
     
  15. Nice shots Travis! I think the heat affected Robert, as he tryed to introduce me to someone as your uncle Jay! Ive seen him 2 or 3 times this summer and had just sat with him shooting the shit at the HAMB drags for 2 hours a couple weeks before this. I told him he must have an advanced case of "Oldtimers"! Im really glad the whole Gypsum bunch has taken me in as one of there own. The Scanlon brothers are all great people, and all their friends and other relation. If I could just get Gannon to not shy away from me, Id be in with all of them! LOL

    Haha, well Rick's wife found out that all she had to do was get out of a Cup car and G is now her biggest fan, so it is possible to win the guy over.

    Had to grab one more shot as I rolled out of the show on Saturday.

    Not 100% H.A.M.B. friendly by some standards, but that Ford Cammer motor is kool enough to share in my book.

    That's it for my coverage of the 2011 KC Goodguys. I had a good time, got to hang with family and friends and got to see some cool cars that I wouldn't have otherwise seen. I'll start the Greaserama coverage before I sack out tonight, same weekend, same town, totally different vibe.

    See ya at a show,

    Travis

    Travis, this set up pix is just as neat as the rest ! Every car there, no matter what the style or make, was a Winner in its own way !!

    BTW: Gotta admit that I'm partial to that '56 Merc in Pt. 3 ! A very kleen ride.
