The 22nd Annual Wings and Wheels Car Truck and Motorcycle Show -- one of the largest shows in the Southeast each fall -- was held at the Museum of Aviation on Saturday, October 11. The show will again welcome more than 150 show-quality vehicles competing for more than 100 awards in 50 different year-group and type-vehicle classes. .
Each vehicle was 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 about 50,000 students each year.
