Art Of The Car Concours: A Classic Car Lover's Dreamland

Hot rods first hit the scene in the 1930s. Their enduring popularity drives owners and fans to preserve and enhance these mobile pieces of history. This Sunday, The Kansas City Art Institute once again transforms the campus into a classic-car lover’s dreamland for its Art of the Car Concours event. On Friday's Up to DateSteve Kraske talks with the event organizer and an automotive expert about the rare autos at this event and the long road of hot rod history.


  • Marshal Millar,  organizer of Art of the Car Concours
  • Ken Gross, award-winning automotive  author and journalist.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
