It's that time of year for one of the largest shows in the Southeast the Annual Wings and Wheels show that is held at the Museum of Aviation. If you have never been then I would encourage you to visit this great show. There are so many impressive cars to see and in talking to owners of the cars you can tell with so many of them that this is a labor of love. I have to say I am so happy my husband has never had the funds nor the desire to follow that little train.
If you have some free time this weekend you might want to stop by it is only on Saturday and it is free to the public. Hours are 9-5 hope we see you there.

The 22nd Annual Wings and Wheels Car Truck and Motorcycle Show -- one of the largest shows in the Southeast each fall -- will be held at the Museum of Aviation on Saturday, October 11. The show will again welcome more than 250 show-quality vehicles competing for more than 100 awards in 50 different year-group and type-vehicle classes. .
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, Best ”Rat” Rod 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 11:00 a.m. and awards are presented at 3:45 pm. “We’re trying to have the awards ceremony earlier this year so everyone can get home sooner,” said Dubiel, who has chaired every show since 1995. The Registration fee is $25 if postmarked by October 3 and $30 thereafter and on show day. The judging classes and registration form can be found at www.museumofaviation.org.
Attractions will include monster truck 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.” There will also be a large 50/50 drawing, a raffle of a battery operated kiddie car and several door prizes.
