Your Spring Drive

The Mansions of Independence

Saturday June 8th 9:30am

Join your fellow Club Members as we explore Independence’s place in 19th Century American History. Our tour starts at the impeccably restored Vaile Mansion. You will marvel at the 14-foot ceilings of this Victorian palace as you are guided through its many rooms by period-inspired tour guides. We will lunch at the town square where you will have a variety of restaurants from which to choose.

After lunch we continue to the nearby Bingham-Waggoner Estate. This mansion has had a variety of historical tenants, including famous painter George Caleb Bingham. On the grounds of the estate, the swales made from covered wagons travelling west can still be seen.

Road Trip! McPherson Kansas May 3, 4 2019

MyClassicCarTV video of the 2018 show

Many of you may be aware of the 4-year automotive restoration degree program offered at McPherson College. The program is internationally known, and is supported by Mercedes Benz, and Jay Leno among others. Each May the students host a car-show weekend which incl

udes a cruise night Friday May 3rd on the main drag of McPherson. The next day, Saturday May 4th the school invites the public to show off their cars at a judged car show on the campus. At this time visitors may tour the restoration shop. The cruise night is open to everyone, but if you wish to have your car on display Saturday, you must pre-register. Click on the link below to register on line for $15.

McPherson is 200 miles from Kansas City, so this will be an overnight event. I suggest those who wish to travel together to leave at 9am Friday. I have some suggestions for lodging and other activities.The organizers of the event are excited about a large showing of KC Cadilac Club vehicles, and our presence would show great support for the young restoration students.

Store Your Car

Of note: Your Classic Ride has space available to store your vehicle. It is an interesting garage which offers 24/365 access to your car, and has a live-in caretaker. You may also bring your tools, and use the facility’s lift to work on your vehicle. All this for the modest sum of $200 per month.
