When we last left our exciting adventure that was the 2011 KKOA Leadsled Spectacular it was the end of Thursday evening, check page 1 for coverage of the Bright Built Open House and Thursday night Santa Fe cruise. Our story picks up today at the show Friday morning.
Coolstuff crashed in my spare room and headed out early, I was up a bit later editing some of the Thursday photos so I didn't get around to the show until 8:30. By then Povertyflats, my Dad, Uncle and assorted family friends had to save me a spot because the place was already filling up.
Bob K brought his gorgeous 62 Vette down to the show, 12 hours each way!
My Dad and my nephew Gannon are enjoying the cars rolling by one side of our spot.

Caddy-O cruising the show, love the way that bumper looks!
I wasn't able to get the skinny on this truck, I just ran out of time. I believe that it's Murphy's truck but I never met Murphy...
Beauty is defined by this ride! A 4 door turned 2 door convertable, just a fantastic build owned by a very nice couple from Iowa.
Love the upholstery in it too
Jetter's fantastic Caddy!
Here's NoSurf's ride again, but I believe BlackTopBuddha is driving (I can't tell because the screen I'm linking from is just showing a thumbnail).
Bad Ass Rides from Paola, KS built this kool truck.
Some hooligans making the rounds!
McGregor Boys were in town for a good time as always
Jeff Myers (finkd) was looking over the car that was about to be chopped by Masterson & Hines and crew. Yes 89 year old Bill Hines was out chopping a car in 107 degree temps, the man is just amazing.
