What began as an idea by a group of car enthusiasts soon turned into a reality for the Kansas City car community. Two years of grassroots marketing and four awards later, the Kansas City Automotive Museum received its first major donation from a private donor, making the long awaited museum possible.
The Kansas City area is home to major automotive and motorcycle manufacturing, racing and a vibrant collector community. The Kansas City Automotive Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable corporation. Currently located in Olathe, their interim museum features over 30 cars and highlights significant local automotive history such as a 1965 Le Mans winner, the Ford Winchester Plant, and Greenlease Cadillac.
You’ll also find them hosting hosting car club meetings and special events throughout the year. Every first and third Saturday they host a Cars & Coffee event (before you look at your calendar, today is a second Saturday…think of this post as a preparation for next week). They are however open today from 10am – 5pm local time.
Coming up August 26th will be their third annual Poker Run. There is a $25 entry fee and everyone who enters will be given a card at each of the 5 rally points. Best hand at the end of the cruise wins…pretty simple but lots of fun and the proceeds go to benefit local charitable givings and Boy Scout programs.
We love to see the car community coming together to benefit the needs of others. Check them out on their website and if you’re local, stop by in person…15095 West 116th Street in Olathe, Kansas.
