During the weekend of February 10 through 12, Bartle Hall in Kansas City was the venue for the 57th Annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels. The show is part of the Championship Auto Shows series held in various U.S. cities and Canada. Every year, World of Wheels packs Bartle Hall with sports cars, classic cars, street rods, race cars, rat rods, motorcycles, and vendor booths. I got my $16 discount ticket at O’Reilly Auto Parts and headed for downtown Kansas City on Sunday, February 12.
