The 2018 Gypsum Pie Festival and Car Show was a blast! This year I was called upon to be the DJ and MC of the show so I didn’t take as many photos as I wished I could have. The temperature was flirting with 100 and although our town has a LOT of trees, none of them were in the right location to help provide shade for the show.
On Saturday I organized and lead the inaugural Flint Hills Rod And Custom Run where we started in Manhattan, KS and drove a beautiful scenic route through the Flint Hills and ended up in Gypsum. I hope to have a stop motion video of that run put together in a few days for you to get a glimpse of what it was like.
Sunday started early, with the show scheduled to open registration at 9 and the show start at 10, there were already 40 or so cars there by 7:30 am! We had a stack of pies, awesome food vendors, crafters, an amazing DJ named Royboy, and a town full of great car folks to hang out with. Door prizes were given away throughout the day as well as some sponsored awards where the award sponsors picked out the recipients and a bunch of awards that the Pie Festival committee members picked out.
A lot of folks went home sweaty and with a pie and as far as I can tell we all had a really good time. I hope to see you here in Gypsum next year!
48 Cars In 48 States : The Great American Road Trip – A 48 state road trip with a stop in each state to photograph a traditionally styled hot rod, kustom or drag vehicle. I completed the trip in November 2017 and have been working on a 224 page coffee table book of the entire 9 week adventure since. The book is shipping in June and only 78 copies remain. You can pre-order the book here! Or pick up a copy at the Hot Rod Dirt Drags or Custom Car Revival!
