This pretty in purple sled doesn’t miss a trick.

The 32nd annual KKOA Lead Sled Spectacular in Salina, Kansas was hot… figuratively and literally!

With temperatures topping out at a very humid 105 degrees, participants earned their dues at this show. Despite the heat the turnout was huge with lead sleds galore. Also, in attendance were hot rods, gassers, rat rods and few other random rides rounding out the diversity.

Hot flames on flat black paint were an eye-grabber on this pick-up.

Oakdale Park was a wonderful location for the show, with plenty of space all those awesome custom cars. In addition, it offered beautiful mature trees offering up some wonderful shade to escape the heat. Events were not limited to the park, with a parade, cruising, drag racing and after-parties. Good times and fond memories were found by all at this great event.
