Classic cars, hot rods and other vehicles will share space with famous, vintage and historic aircraft at the Super Saturday Castle Air Museum Car Show on Sept. 27 in Atwater.
With early entries already ahead of last year’s inaugural event pace, this year’s show is expected to feature more than 400 cars, said show organizer Don Harmon. The 2013 show raised more than $20,000 for the museum, which opened in 1981 showcasing iconic military aircraft from World War II to the present with more than 60 restored aircraft and indoor displays.
Entrants will be able to park their vehicles under the wings and around the vintage planes, which include a B-52, B-29, SR-71 (the Blackbird), B-36 and other aircraft. The show is open to all cars, trucks, boats, rat rods and motorcycles; awards will be presented in a variety of classifications.
The entry fee for the car show entries is $35. The first 100 paid entries will receive a dash plaque and poster in addition to two free passes (a $10-per-person value) to tour the presidential airplane, a backup to Air Force One that was used by several U.S. presidents and vice presidents.
The show will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and spectator admission is $5, with children 6 and under free. Uniformed law-enforcement officers, firefighters and all military personnel in uniform will be admitted at no charge.
“With last year’s first show turning into such a success, this year’s event promises to be even more exciting,” Harmon said in a news release. “A fifty-fifty drawing and The Big Raffle with lots of great merchandise and the sounds of Scott Porter’s Hot Rods Band and, of course, such a great display of wonderful planes and the museum (will make it) a really fun and educational day.”
