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.

I'll head back to the show tomorrow after work and I'll have more shots for you throughout the weekend. I hope to do a post of cell phone photos on Sunday and start the coverage of the show on Monday.
See you at a show,
