After the assassination of JFK, a Kansas City auto show went on

Bonnie Susan Barter was queen of the auto show at Kansas City’s Municipal Auditorium on Nov. 22, 1963. Then tragedy struck: President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed 500 miles away in Dallas. Bonnie and her mother waited for the phone call canceling the show, but it never came.
