The Great Ponder Creek Chili Cook Off

 To show their appreciation for the car shows we have had there over the years, the good folks at the Ponder Creek Retirement Village have invited all of us to a big Chili Dinner complete with a band and entertainment and best of all it'sfree. If possible I would like to see our club members drive an antique car, but it’s not necessary.This event will be held rain or shine. So if it does rain, I won’t be driving my model T, but I will still be there for dinner.  Ponder Creek Retirement Village is in Valley Station.   Roger Stephan (502) 640-0115

Event Recap

Third Annual KYANA Derby Festival Cruise


When:  April 28, 2019 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (rain or shine)


Where: Iroquois Park Amphitheatre


Sponsors:  Dennis and Melody Welsh-Buchholz and Neil White



Dennis Buchholz and Melody Welsh-Buchholz again invited KYANA to a classic cars display at Iroquois Park before the annual Louisville Youth Orchestra (LYO) pops concert at the Iroquois Amphitheatre. The annual concert is a recognized Kentucky Derby Festival event and draws hundreds of attendees to Iroquois Park.


The LYO, founded in 1958, provides an extraordinary musical experience for young people from grade school through age 21. There are over 350 musicians from 101 schools and 17 counties in the Louisville & Southern Indiana metro area.


This year’s car display included 17 KYANA member cars. Members were provided pizza, drinks, and snacks during the display. Prior to the concert, the LYO student musicians were encouraged to vote for their favorite car. The top three vote getters were presented gift card awards in front of the gathered audience prior to the concert. Much to our surprise, the students voted for three of the older antique automobiles on display, Roger Stephan’s Ford Model T roadster, Mark Kubancik’s ’55 DeSoto, and Bob Purdy’s ’57 Thunderbird.


The students, their parents, and friends really enjoyed inspecting the cars and were enthusiastic about voting for their favorite. It was a fun day and KYANA thanks Dennis and Melody for arranging this popular event.
