A few showers didn't dampen the large participation in this fun and popular car show which was hosted by the German Car Club of Kansas.  All things associated with German vehicles could be seen here.  There was even a matching VW bus and toy bus as well as a VW Bus BBQ grill!  It was fun seeing the VW buses actually being used to camp under the tall trees in the park; reminiscent of hippy days in the '60s.  Among some of the other unusual cars was a BMW Issetta with an amazing paint job.  The show being a participant judged event, there was no doubt what was going to be 1st place in the Mercedes-Benz category hwen a vintage blue 190SL rolled into the show.  A total of 9 Mercedes-Benzs were entered this year.  Kirk Filbey's red 1973 350SL Euro took 2nd place and Lee Elrick's black 1993 500E took 3rd place.  Can't wait to meet up again next September!
