Old Town Wings & Wheels Car Show Saturday the 11th [UPDATE]
Gus is a barber in Old Town. Lance was getting a haircut. And of course, they were talking. Talking about cars.
And that turned into talking about putting on a car show.
What would it take?
Lance runs Old Town Airport. Gus is Gus’s Barber Shop. The first thing they did was recruit Mark from Ogden Mechanical, Michael from 207 S#!t Boxes/Family Ties Racing, and Doc From MVP.
Wings & Wheels Car Show & Fly-In is set for June 11th. DeWitt Field in Old Town.
Actually, it’ll be called the 2nd Annual Wings & Wheels, because there was a Wings & Wheels show about 5 years ago put on by another group.
Yes, there will be cars. Hundreds and hundreds of cars. Registration is the morning of the event, beginning at 8 a.m., and is $5 per car.
Classifications include Decades of cars. Pre 1950, 1950s, 1060s, 1070s, 1980s and up. Plus Hot Rod, Muscle cars, trucks, jeeps, foreign and motorcycles.
There are 48 trophies that will be given out beginning at 3 p.m.
Food. Live music. Vendors. A swap meet.
Those 5 guys thought of everything. That must have been a long hair cut.
Even axe throwing from Smoke & Steel and a kids' area with Kings Mountain R C.
All proceeds will go to Maine Veteran’s Project. And Doc is grateful for the financial donations
It’s an invitation to get all vets out of the house for some social interaction with others, and the financial donation is important. But the outlet for the vets to meet and get to know other vets may be more important as an event than the $
Wings & Wheels has also thought of something else very important.
Bar Harbor native Danny Dunn has been fighting lymphoma for many years. He needs a donor match. And there will be an organization called Be the Match attending. This is a national marrow donor program. Testing at the event for a stem cell donor, to assist Danny and others. Information on Be the Match here.
This will be an incredible event. Thanks to the 5 guys with the vision.
