Central Georgians revved up for Wings & Wheels car show

Thousands of people took a look inside some antique vehicles Saturday at the Museum of Aviation Wings & Wheels Car Show.

More than 33 judges walked around checking engines, paint jobs, and interiors of more than 150 vehicles. 

They saw vehicles, like Mustangs, 2017 Corvettes and some vehicles dating back to the early 1920's

Museum of Aviation fundraising coordinator Christin McFarland says this is a 20-year standing tradition that started with Colonel Robert Dubiel.

"To raise money for our B17 aircraft, we have a restoration going on. We received our B17 last year in August and we're just trying to get it built up so that it can be used for education purposes," said McFarland. “We do tours for all of our history courses that we have for different school districts throughout the state."

The Museum created a memorial in honor of Dubiel. They also handed out first, second and third place trophies along with door prizes.

They aim to raise nearly $10,000 at this car show, however they need $300,000 to get the B17 aircraft back to its prime.
