    Love the poster listing the trophy sponsors. Good that they kept the motorcycle riffraff out.

    Love the Kansas version of the "Bustle Bomb". Kinda funny, I learned some of these city names, Like Hays, and Garden City, watching Gunsmoke !

    WOW! I have never seen these cars before. May I have your permission to post a couple of these photos on a couple of sites I administer, with credit to you and your friends?

    Great photos! I was impressed with the number of sponsors! I have family in that area, but didn’t see their business listed, but they were a ways away in Scott City.

    Thanks for sharing the history @wfo guy...it never gets old, preserving and sharing it just makes the case that the good Ole days were great for many reasons...

    A virtual high five to your friends who have left us...

    They sure knew what engines to fool around with...;)

    Their taste in Hotrods was right up there too...

    The front and rear engined dragster is insane! Would it even be able to steer effectively? Some real experimental stuff going on there. Great pics, thanks for sharing.

    I agree. That "I chopped the top yesterday" coupe is iconic as you can get.

    Great picture of the guys, the car and the funky '50s architecture.
