2700 miles is a long drive pulling a car trailer.
But it was worth it to attend the 20th Anniversary of the McPherson College Motoring Festival in McPherson Kansas—nearly the midpoint of the USA. The only school that offers a four-year degree in automobile restoration, McPherson hosted 400 cars on the show field including my 1951 Allard K2.
A superb collection of cars; the impressive student work done in the program; and the amazing effort and energy of nearly 160 young people pulling together this terrific event convinced me of one thing; The car hobby is in good hands with the next generation of enthusiasts. They have the skills, the knowledge, the desire, and the interest. All they need is our support.
Go to car shows. Share your car with the future collectors. Let them sit in it your car. Take them for a ride. Let them share their own cars with you. Stoke their enthusiasm.
I promise you won’t regret it.
