Event Coverage: 2013 Blacktop Nationals Part 1

The 4th Annual Blacktop Nationals went down this weekend Aug. 23-25 in Wichita, KS. Based in the area of Century II in downtown Wichita the show stretches out across the Arkansas River to the west and to the south of Century II as well.  The show welcomes all kinds of vehicles and has them out in the streets and inside of Century II as well. A road course is set up to the south of Century II for some ride alongs in new Ford Mustangs. Ford is one of the major sponsors of the show, and they go all out bringing their “circus” to town with new rides of all flavors.







You don’t see these very often.

The show judges the cars on the engine compartments, that’s why they all are open,  yes I know it ruins photos and no there’s nothing that can be done about it.

A fun little roadster.

A clean 58 Chevrolet

I liked this Vette alot.

Mike’s newest build, a clean east coast style 34 Ford with all pre-53 parts except the 59 steering wheel, “it’s just too kool to not have on it.”

The cleanest shoebox in the area. So well done, so clean.

That’s it for the first installment. If you want to see the entire gallery go here. Tomorrow morning at the normal 9am time we’ll have a new update!

See you at a show,
