Downtown Wichita was taken over this weekend by classic cars of all makes and models.
This weekend was the annual BlackTop Nationals car show. Car enthusiasts could walk around downtown or tour Century two II all weekend long, checking out new models fresh off the showroom floor and classic antique cars.
This was the car show's fourth year, and event organizers and sponsors say it was the biggest and best yet.
“We've had more events, more spectators and more vendors coming so the show just gets better any year and it's fantastic for Wichita,” BlackTop Nationals president Rick Nuckolls said.
“"The amount of enthusiasm for BlackTop in its fourth year is amazing, I can see Wichita really gets behind it,” Ford Marketing Manager Paul Brearey said.
Organizers say an estimated 100,000 people came out to this year's show. Between car collectors, vendors, and sponsors: people from 22 different states participated in this year's car show.
