On July 9, Central Power Systems & Services hosted an open house for customers at its branch in Salina, Kan., that offered opportunities to view and test equipment from manufacturers like Wacker Neuson, Doosan, Doosan Portable Power and Liebherr. (Some lines are only carried by specific Central Power locations.)

In addition to the available iron and power systems on display was the 1968 Firebird owned by Central Power chairman/CEO Robin Roberts, along with several other hot rods. While the Firebird looked ready to take on any challenger, there were no impromptu drag races despite an appearance by Jerry "Monza" Johnston and Joe "Dominator" Woods of the Discovery Channel show Street Outlaws.
