Most of my 40 years have been spent in or around Gypsum, KS. Most of the Octobers that I’ve been here I’ve gone down to the Fall Festival held on and around our main drag, Maple Street. The “downtown” area is all on this 1 paved street (except for about a half block off of Maple in each way). There’s a parade, kids games, and in recent years a car show organized by my uncle Paul, known online by many as Poverty Flats.

One of the many great folks that I’ve met along all of these adventures is my buddy Doug. Doug sells shirts at many shows across the midwest, we run into each other quite a bit. He has a show in Winfield, KS called the Winfield Garage Show. For the 2nd year I took my Galaxie to the show, it’s a small show but lots of good people. Hopefully the show can grow a bit in the next few years, Doug does a great job of putting on a show.
Pratt, KS is about 2 hours southwest of my home in central KS. On Saturday May 24, 2014 we headed down to Pratt for a car show put on by the Pratt Fire Department. I don’t know why this show hasn’t taken off, Memorial Day weekend in this area doesn’t have much going on show wise unless you want to drive 5 or so hours to the NSRA Nationals in Springfield, MO. I’ll be heading back to this show again next year if at all possible. I’ll even bring my car… if it isn’t broken again…
See you at a show,
