19th Annual Wings & Wheels Comes to Museum

 

The annual Wings and Wheels Car Truck and Motorcycle Show -- will be held at the Museum of Aviation on Saturday, October 8.  The Museum of Aviation news release says the 19th annual show expects to welcome another 250 gleaming show-quality vehicles competing for more than 100 awards in 50 different year-group and type-vehicle classes.

 “We get outstanding vehicles from all over the state and even some from out of state,” said show chairman Bob Dubiel. “We have several local people who will be bringing special cars to the show – like Dr. Larry Rivers who owns several gorgeous mid-fifties and sixties Chevrolets and Mike Speight from State bank who has a 1948 Truck Dragster. We also have registered a 1969 Mercury Eliminator coming from Titusville, Florida and a 1937 Ford Truck that was used in the 1983 TV movie ‘Murder in Coweta County’ starring Johnny Cash.”

Each vehicle is judged on its appearance and appeal with scores given for interior, exterior, paint and engine.  The top winners in each class receive Best in Class awards and five vehicles are picked to receive Best of Show Trophies.  Awards are also given for Best Interior (Stock and Custom), Best Engine (Stock and Modified), Best Paint and Best Young Gun (18 and younger).  A commander from Robins Air Force Base will also select a vehicle for the “Commander’s Choice” Trophy. The show benefits the Museum of Aviation which provides science technology, engineering and math education classes for more 50,000 students each year.

Wings and Wheels is a family-oriented show with no alcoholic beverages allowed.

Registration on show day is held from 8:00 am to 11:30 a.m. and awards are presented at 4:45 pm.  The Registration fee is $20 up until October 1 and $25 thereafter and on show day. The judging classes and registration form can be found on two websites: www.museumofaviaiton.org and www.wingsandwheelscarshow.com.

Attractions this year include the “Savage” monster truck which gives rides around the Museum grounds, kiddie car races in the picnic area, “Cruizin’ to the Oldies” with DJ Tommy Landrum, a silent auction, food and car-related vendors and a cars-for-sale “Corral.”  Door prizes include a $500 giveaway with $25 cash drawings given away every 15 minutes to 20 lucky winners.
