2014 Gypsum Summer Car Show and Pie Festival Part 1

With about 3 weeks between them and the date, a local restaurant owner and one of his most loyal patrons set out to have a car show on Memorial Day weekend in the tiny town of Gypsum, KS. The eating establishment in question is the newly opened Exit 14, a play on a comical sign at the edge of the single paved street town proclaiming “Gypsum Next 13 Exits.” The patron in question is my uncle the internet infamous Poverty Flats, Paul Kruse.

With 3 weeks planning the show went off great. 75 cars showed up from as far away as Springfield, MO and Lincoln, NE. Good food was had at Exit 14, stories were told and pies were awarded, all in all a great success.

 Part 1 Part 2

The view looking north on Maple Street in Gypsum. The blue building on the right was my uncle and aunt’s hardware store up until last November, the Pepsi sign on the left is Exit 14.
Brian’s car is full of kool. He recently showed me pics of the chop going down at DeRosa’s shop at about the same time that Barry Weiss’ Cadillac was there, the Caddy can be seen in the background of some of the progress shots of this car.
All the way from Springfield, MO was our friend Dick Craig in his simple yet kool 54 Chevy.
A local car that’s been built in the shop it sits in front of in this pic.
Quite a crew from Osborne, KS there were more but these were the roadsters of the group.
I love this car. The owner is pretty awesome too.
Dick’s 5 window is pretty near perfect, and awfully damn yellow :).
Lizzie of Pinstriping by Lizzie brought her 62 Buick Special up from Tulsa, OK. She even made a pie to give out as her own award.

My friend Donny’s car. The world lost this amazing guy a decade ago but his father still shows his car from time to time. dB was one of the good ones, I miss you brother.

More to come tomorrow including the pie winners!

A Lazy Saturday With Some Friends

With no major plans on my schedule for last weekend, I was excited when my buddy Jack said that he was having a small intimate get together at his place in honor of some family that were going to be in town for the Easter Weekend. This was not to be a big deal, just a few of his Mulvane Marauders friends and some family and me.

So… I loaded up my cameras and headed for Wichita. 1st stop was at Deville’s Barbershop in downtown Wichita. After a quick trim I was on my way to Jack’s place.

Guest Post: Quentin Brown At The SW MO Hot Rod Hundred

Usually I post a few days worth of coverage of an event from my camera, so when I was given the opportunity to post 2 days of coverage of the SW MO Hot Rod Hundred by two different people, I jumped at it! Thanks to Quentin Brown of artdirectorandhotrodder.com for these great photos of the Southwest Missouri Hot Rod Hundred!

———————————————————————————————

From Quentin’s site:

“Yesterday my father and I got out the roadster and attended the 1st Annual Hot Rod Hundred organized by Bret atStreetRodder.net and the CrossMembers Car Club that he is apart of.

I had attended the Route Scout for the Hot Rod Hundred with my co-worker Curtis Green back in October. The route we scouted took us up through Willard, the Stockton Lake area and a stop at the historic Rt.66 gas station in Spencer, Mo. We took the same route this time but ended the drive in Crane, Mo with a chili lunch that was provided by BenD and his family.

The whole Hot Rod Hundred event was an amazing time. I don’t think I would change one thing about the entire event. Overall we went 224.7 miles in the roadster and it ran like a sewing machine the entire way. ”

Guest Post: Cory McMahon at the SW MO Hot Rod Hundred

Last Friday I shared some photos from my buddy Cory McMahon from his trip to the Lonestar Roundup. Over the weekend he went on the Southwest Missouri version of the Hot Rod Hundred. I was bummed that I couldn’t go,  now that I see his photos I’m downright depressed! Cory has been gracious to share over 100 photos with us of his adventure on the Hot Rod Hundred. As a special bonus tomorrow we’ll have another look at the Hot Rod Hundred from another participant. Find Cory on Facebook here or on Instagram here.

———————————————————————————————

This past weekend was the southwest Missouri edition of the Hot Rod Hundred reliability run hosted by Bret Chrismer and the Crossmembers CC. This was the second of the 5 events held across the country and it was a huge success. Each event consists of the same idea, a 100-ish mile reliability run, yet each one is different.
The southwest Missouri run ended up being almost 150 miles. We started off leaving the legion hall in Springfield at 9 and made our way north to Lake Stockton for our first stop. Then we made our way around the lake and headed south. A couple stops later brought us to a section of old Route 66 for some awesome photo ops in front of a cool old gas station. We then got back on the highway and headed to Crane, MO, for chili and hot dogs. The event was fantastic and a huge success with over 70 cars in attendance from Iowa all the way down to Dallas. Big Ken from Dallas got the “Long Haul” award that I pinstriped up on one of Bret’s old Moon disc covers. Ken drove 1000 miles round trip in his 33 pickup. He’s awesome.
There’s still a few more Hot Rod Hundred’s you can attend this year. The north Texas and Oklahoma City run’s are on June 14 with the two runs meeting up for a joint picnic, and the St. Louis run is October 11. Do yourself a favor check out the Hot Rod Hundred on the H.A.M.B. and hit up one of these reliability runs if you’re in the area. They’re a blast. Congrats to Bret and the Crossmembers for hosting such a fine event.

Click on any of the photos to go see the entire gallery. Thanks for sharing your photos with us Cory! Folks to connect with Cory, the best place is to look him up on facebook here.

  • Lots of cars, stockers, mildly customized, hot rods, street rods, wildly customized, a few actual kustoms and everything else you can imagine
  • Spectators everywhere, seems to be a theme this year. Good thing because it means that people are willing to spend money, in this case $15 a head to come to car shows, maybe a new boom in car building is on the horizon as well.
  • Got to spend the day with my buddy Jared. He drove over from Tulsa to hang out at the show and it was great to walk around the event with a buddy that’s not quite as ate up with this whole car thing as I am, gave me a different perspective on some of the cars.
  • After the show I followed him back to Tulsa, had dinner with him and his wife and then I passed out on the couch while the NASCAR race was on
  • Sunday I went over to Doc Parson’s house with the intention of filming a feature video on his hot rod “Rowdy” but the weather was not cooperating.
  • Wemic’d him up and recordedalittle bit for you to hear here on the podcast.
    • Doc Parsons was a racer for more than 5 decades all over the U.S. and abroad
    • Stories that I got to hear but we didn’t get recorded told tales of gold prospecting in Peru, diving on shipwrecks and coming up with artifacts, building a car for some bigger tracks that USAC outlawed before it finished it’s 3rd race
    • his shop was full of racing memorabilia that all means something to him whether or not it means something to the rest of the world.
    • Photo Apr 13, 1 36 59 PM
      Doc’s 1 year in a drag effort was in this car.

      Photo Apr 13, 1 41 12 PM
      One of the vintage photos of Doc and one of his cars.
    • Doc’s “Rowdy”
      The very rare intake with 3 single barrel and 1 2 bbl carb and hidden nitrous plumbing underneath.
      Here you can see the holes drilled in the Halibrand wheels to balance them.

  • New Blood Award Click here for info on how 2 people will win $500 cash this summer from Royboy Productions and some awesome sponsors.

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 Part 4

It’d been 4 years since I’d been to the NSRA Southwestern Nationals in Oklahoma City, OK. To be 100% honest billet wheeled street rods are not my thing. Some can look great for sure but a set of wheels that cost half what I paid for my car is just something I can’t really relate to at this point in my financial life :). Anyways, the show was big, lots of rides, lots of spectators and lots of wind. The vendor building was usually empty for the amount of spectators, I don’t think that the average spectator had any idea that there were vendors in the building. This is the kind of show that a lot of folks leave their hoods open so they can get judged to get a trophy. As such they leave the cars open like that and look like crap in photos 🙂 Oh well. Folks when your hood is open your car looks like it’s broken down, want a trophy? Go to a trophy store :).

On with the photos!

1 Month Warning: Southwest Street Rod Nationals

Southwest Street Rod Nationals goes down in Oklahoma City, OK at the State Fair Park the weekend of April 11-13, 2014. You can go here for full info on the event weekend.

I’ve only been to this event 1 time, but I do plan on returning this year. Schedule conflicts or just plain monetary conflicts have kept me away since the one trip that I took in 2010, but this year I will make a return… and nobody there will really notice. The show is big, lots of space, lots of street rods, lots of vendors and last time I went not all that many people from my normal circles. One of the koolest parts of the event is when people start to split from the show on Saturday they cause a parade of sorts of most of the cars in the event, so gather up a lawn chair and enjoy the scenery as it rolls by.

Here are some photos from my previous visit to the show.

The view from the main level to the lower level was pretty good.
Murph (in the hat in the chair) brought this wild kustom pickup out to show off again.

It seems that Darryl emptied out most of the museum to show off at the show.
I’ve seen this car around for a few years and I dig it every time I see it.

Floyd’s 58 Edsel Roundup. Beautiful brand new mild kustom.
Daniel Dolan came down from Colorado to hang out for the weekend.
I looooove it. I need to get up to Colorado and shoot some video of this ride.
California to OK at 80 mph and 23 mpg. It was great to see Bill Hines and John at the show.

Doc’s T is always one of my favorite’s and definitely on my list for a future feature video.
It’s been fun watching this wild kustom come together!

The West end of the building typically doesn’t have much that interests me. Yes I love most any kinda car but come on, a row of nearly identical muscle cars all with the same restoration, all with their hoods up… yeah I’ll walk on by that. The farther East that you go the more interest I have in the cars in this show typically.

2014 Darryl Starbird Rod & Custom Show : Tulsa Pt. 1

PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3 | PART 4 | PART  5 | PART 6 |

After working 7-10am at the day job, driving 3 hours to Kansas City, shooting the KC World of Wheels and then driving 4 hours to the south side of Tulsa, I was beat. I settled in at my buddy’s house and watched some racing and got to see the awesome advertising that was Chevrolet’s pace car catching fire in front of the whole world. Good job Chevy.

The next morning I went over to the Fairgrounds in Tulsa and hit the 50th Annual Darryl Starbird Rod & Custom Car Show. To my eye the show looked to have a ton more cars than I’ve ever seen in the building before. Especially obvious was the lack of the silly Monster Trucks and the addition of a whole bunch more floor space that was occupied by mostly occupied by the majority of the cars from Darryl’s museum, some previous Fine 9 contestants and the KKOA Village.

Hot Rod and Kustom fans, bear with me. This post won’t have much in it for you. It seems like most of the cars in the show have broken down and the owners were out getting new parts so they just left the hoods up in this most unattractive fashion while they were gone.

My friend Robert’s beautiful 59 Chevrolet. Fresh back from a stay at Hot Rod Garage where the car received a few updates to get her ready for a road trip to the west coast. I wish I could follow along in the Galaxie

In stock or restored forms this body style does very little for me. Like this, I can see it’s appeal, except for having it’s hood and trunk open showing all of it’s naughty bits like a cheap stripper…

You see all those lights in a row on the ceiling? That’s the size of this building and it was 90% used for the car show. That’s a lotta lugnuts.

More good looking cars ruined by having the hoods open. Yeah yeah yeah, judging, trophies, blah blah blah. Want a trophy? Go buy one, it’s way cheaper than building a car.

I’ve never seen a buggy like this. I don’t know why, I live the old Manx bodies but having a bit of the original sheetmetal on looks pretty okay too. Now where’s the map to the Little Sahara?

Upcoming Event: 2013 October Schedule

The month of September has been a busy one. With an event every weekend and most of those weekends with multiple option of events to attend, it’s definitely been a good time. October is shaping up much the same way. I thought I’d give you a list of the events that I’m going to attend and some that I can’t, hopefully I will have friends turning in coverage from the ones that I cannot make so that you and I can enjoy the photos. Without further ado, here is the schedule.

October Schedule

Oct. 4th

Hutchinson, KS – Johnny Torres Upholstery Open House

One of my many talented friends doing upholstery for a living. Johnny is having an open house at his shop in Hutchinson, KS on Friday night before the big Saturday show in downtown Hutch.

Oct. 5th

Hutchinson, KS – 6th Annual Hutch Rod Run

Russell, KS – Flatland Car Show

Abilene, KS – Chisholm Trail Days

Oklahoma City – Shoebox Central Run –

Oct. 12th

Lamar, MO – Ol Geezers Car Show

Woodstock, IL – Iron Invasion

Agitators show – Atomic Rod & Custom Car Show

Oct. 18th & 19th

Salina, KS – NOT A CAR SHOW – This one is not a car show, has nothing to do with cars, but is a mainstay on my schedule. I have worked as a stage hand and later as an assistant engineer for the BluesMasters at the Crossroads at Blue Heaven Studios since 2000. If you are a fan of blues music this is the place to be Friday and Saturday nights.

Oct. 26th

Sand Springs, OK – Hot Rod Garage is a well known high end hot rod and custom shop in the Tulsa area. The 26th is their open house and I’ve heard that there will be 12 front engine dragsters on display among a bunch of customer cars and more. Definitely looking forward to heading down to this event for the first time.

November

November will continue the busy schedule with an event every weekend, I may even do one on Thanksgiving weekend if I can make enough money to cover the gas to Denver and back after going to Oklahoma once and Texas twice!

See you at a show,

Royboy

The beautiful blue Kansas sky and the big trees of Forest Park combined to make lots and lots of harsh shadows. If I had more time at the show I would have used an off camera flash to fill in a bit, but I had 3 hours to cover a park with about 2000 cars in it… So yeah I didn’t do that 🙂

I love the stance of this shoebox. If any of you know the owner I’d like to find out how this stance was achieved. I have 3″ drop springs for the front of mine and 3″ drop springs for the rear, but I’m sure I need to get down farther than that.
