McPherson College C.A.R.S. Club Motoring Festival

CSX2409 AC Cobra
McPherson College is the only college to offer a bachelor’s degree in Restoration Technology and, for the 19th year, the C.A.R.S. Club on campus put on a car & motorcycle show. The show features the students' rides and projects, restored vehicles, significant cars in history, motorcycles, tractors, trucks, and modern cars. Check out some of the sights and cars after the jump!

Some of the stand out cars at this impressive show were a steam-powered 1916 Stanley 726, a 1930 Cadillac V16 Roadster, a 1929 Ford Model A Tudor built by Rad Rides by Troy, and a genuine AC Cobra with chassis number CSX2409 "known as the lowest mileage Cobra in existence".
