The field in front of the Liberty Memorial in Kansas City turned into a giant parking lot Sunday as more than 400 cars, including many vintage models, were displayed in the Great Car Show.
“It was quite a process moving in, but now that we’re settled, we have a great show and we couldn’t be happier,” said Vreni Fernandez, executive director of the Kansas City Automotive Museum, which produced the Great Car Show.
The show was a benefit for the museum and the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and featured cars from the 1900s to the present.
“We have a little bit of everything here,” she said.
With this being the first year for the show, organizers initially hoped for 150 cars. The number of cars registered exceeded that once the forecast came out calling for great weather.
“As is the case with a lot of car shows, once the weather forecast comes out, people actually register,” Fernandez said. “We went from about 200 cars to 400 in a week.”
