The flag goes down on the 24th-annual Mid-America Mopar Car Show Sunday at Brit Spaugh Park, come rain or shine.
The show begins with registration at 9 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m. at Brit Spaugh Park. There will be an engine-blowing event at 3 p.m. and awards will be presented at 4 p.m.

The show is open to classics of all makes and vintages, motorcycles, pickups, tuners, race cars and imports. Public viewing begins at noon and there is no charge for spectators. The band Ronnie and the Rockets will perform from noon to 3 p.m. Food will also be available.
A special attraction this year will be the Sox and Martin Plymouth supercars, classic racers from the 1960s, shown by the Ronnie Sox Foundation in honor of Sox who died of prostrate cancer in 2006. The local Mopar club will donate funds to the foundation and the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
The event is expected to draw more than 100 classic cars from Kansas and surrounding states. Those showing their cars will vote for first-, second- and third-place winners in each category, and best of show. Money raised from this event helps to sponsor scholarships for students interested in auto technology.
