Starbird-Devlin Load-in Photos

So at 9:30am on January 17, 2013 I did something I’d never done before. I drove my Galaxie into it’s first ever indoor car show. The Starbird-Devlin Car Show at Century II in Wichita, KS, “The Wichita Tradition.” This is the 56th annual show, previously known as the Starbird Rod & Custom Show, it’s been a tradition in Wichita for a long long time.

I was lucky enough to be a part of the Kustom City display this year. Thanks to the new paint work done on my Galaxie by Jeff Myers, my car has been transformed to 60’s Boulevard cruiser. Doug Reed put together the Kustom City display of street kustoms from the area and my Galaxie was lucky enough to make the group.

So we rolled in, positioned ourselves and started cleaning the cars. It wasn’t long before it was time to head back to the day job, but I managed to grab a couple of quick snapshots while I was there.

Wow! First off I have to say, I had a great time this weekend at the 2011 H.A.M.B. Drags! So many of my great friends, so many cool cars, and some fun on the dragstrip, what more could a fella ask for?

I struck out from the middle of Kansas around 7 on Friday evening heading southeast towards Joplin, a stop or two along the way and by 12:30 I was relaxing in my hotel room.

Saturday Morning I went out and trolled the parking lot, my first peek out of the window I see this beauty.

Heading out in the parking lot I a see is our family’s friend Robert’s 56 Chevy, that’s a good way to start the day.

Some last minute wrenching going on in the hotel parking lot.

Lots of killer rides out in the parking lots

This is perhaps the oddest pairing that I’ve ever seen side by side and I dig it!

Hot rodding is good family fun, that rumble seat is full!

Some creative thinking provided my dad & friends with some shade and the height of the bleachers.

Uncle Povertyflats and Bobwop had some space where Pov was selling some of his swap meet items and had some motorized bikes on display.

Ben Dragdaddy was on hand with his always killer art!

The track was prepped and ready for action!

That’s part 1, I’ll be back when I get off of work to show some more, click on any of the shots to see the full gallery and videos!
