Hot Rods, Customs & Muscle Cars Head to Owls Head
On Saturday & Sunday, June 16 & 17, the Owls Head Transportation Museum celebrates America’s passion for cool cars with its annual Hot Rods, Customs, Muscle Cars & Antique Aeroplane Show. Gates open at 9:30 am.
“Colorful” is the word Museum Director Charles Chiarchiaro uses to describe this annual event. “We’ll have everything from 1930s hot rods to 1970s muscle cars, plus the many custom creations that have evolved. They all combine to make this one of our most popular events.”
From hot rods to rat rods, motorcycles to bicycles—come show off your custom ride. Although the theme is custom vehicles, owners of pre-1992 vehicles are always welcome to exhibit at this and all other Museum (non-auction) events at no charge.
As part of the day’s activities the Museum will actively demonstrate a few of its turn-of-the-century automobiles as well as give free rides in Ford Model Ts. Special children’s activities and Museum tours are planned. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family.
Young children can practice their driving skills in the Kids Corral area, which features more than a dozen pedal cars and pedal planes. Admission is free for all visitors under 18.
The antique aeroplane starts promptly at 9:30 a.m., weather permitting. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a chance to see the Museum's pioneer aircraft in action.
New and renewing members who sign up the show are automatically entered into a biplane ride drawing. Two drawings are held at noon and 3 pm. You do not have to be present to win.
