K-F International

Contrary to what some of you may believe, the K-F in the title of this post does not stand for Kentucky Fried.

So for those of you looking for a cuisine oriented blog post, you'll have to look elsewhere today.

No the K F in this post stands for Kaiser-Frazer, which was a U.S. automobile manufacturing company that produced cars in the 1940's and 50's.

They looked like this.

You can read the history of the company here.

A group of aficionados of the cars formed a group called the Kaiser Frazer Owners Club International in 1959.

And this week their 59th National Convention is being held in our area.

A number of cars from across the nation are on display for the convo.

Including the Darrin, which was a fiberglass sports car that beat the Chevrolet Corvette to market by one month.

Car lovers will have a great time in Central Arizona this week.
