Buster’s Classics

If unique and classic cars rev your engine, then Buster’s car show is the place for you.

Classic cars are a hobby and enjoyed by people of all ages.

Numerous people build their own car to fit their personality. People spend months and even years working on them. Often times it turns into a family project and even a tradition.

Buster’s car show participant said, “I had my son drive my car back with me from North Dakota after I bought it, and I painted it myself. Car shows get me out of the house since my wife passed away 2 months ago.”

When the summer roles around, car shows are a great opportunity to enjoy the weather and show of months of hard work.

A great way to find a car enthusiast is at Buster’s Bar and Grill in Mankato, Minnesota. Every Thursday evening from May 6-Sept. 30 Busters puts on a unique and classic car show.

Jeff Kuchenbecker, Buster’s manager, said, “You name it, it’s out here.”

Buster’s Unique and Classic Car Show is back in season.

MANKATO, MINN.— Buster’s Bar and Grill hosts an annual summer car show every Thursday evening from May 6 until Sep. 30.  People travel from all over to show off their vintage, unique and collector cars.

Buster’s owner, Matt Little, said, “The main reason why we do this is because it brings people together. You see people swapping and buying each others cars.”

Busters took over unique and classic car show night when Ruttles Restaurant, the previous car show host, closed.  Busters wanted to keep classic cars in Mankato.

Buster’s car show currently has 17 sponsors, 4 of which are radio sponsors. The 4 radio sponsors handle announcements and prize giveaways every week.

Snell Motors sign up car show participants and Unique Specialty and Classic Cars display a new model car in the corner of the parking lot each week.

Buster’s manager, Jeff Kuchenbecker, said, “Buster’s Car Show is an absolute blast.  We get 150 up to 300 cars every week.”

Learn to be a Quick Learner

Week three of multimedia writing turned out to be another learning experience. This week I had to quickly become an expert photographer, master of the flip video and an intriguing interviewer. We jumped head first into our projects.

My partner and I decided we would do our video report and soundslide on an ever popular summer event. We chose classic and unique car show night at Busters, a local bar and grill. Classic car shows can be found at many different locations throughout the summer. We had a blast taking photos and shooting video. Practice is definitely the key in learning how to use technology. 

The next step in creating our video and soundslide was to learn how to import the pictures and footage. Also, we had to learn how to use the programs for editing our projects. Since we only have two weeks left of class, we have to try to catch on as quickly as possible. The convenient part is that there are so many tutorials on how to use all these programs and devices. Some of the programs and devices we have learned to use are the zoom, the flip and iMovie ’09.

My hope is to get my video and soundslide up on my blog for everyone to see. I still have alot to learn about these programs and the every expanding world of technology.
