Gus is a barber in Old Town. Lance was getting a haircut. And of course, they were talking. Talking about cars.

And that turned into talking about putting on a car show.

What would it take?

Lance runs Old Town Airport. Gus is Gus’s Barber Shop. The first thing they did was recruit Mark from Ogden Mechanical, Michael from 207 S#!t Boxes/Family Ties Racing, and Doc From MVP.

Wings & Wheels Car Show & Fly-In is set for June 11th. DeWitt Field in Old Town.

Actually, it’ll be called the 2nd Annual Wings & Wheels, because there was a Wings & Wheels show about 5 years ago put on by another group.

Yes, there will be cars. Hundreds and hundreds of cars. Registration is the morning of the event, beginning at 8 a.m., and is $5 per car.

There are 48 trophies that will be given out beginning at 3 p.m.

Food. Live music.  Vendors. A swap meet.

Those 5 guys thought of everything. That must have been a long hair cut.

Even axe throwing from Smoke & Steel and a kids' area with Kings Mountain R C.

All proceeds will go to Maine Veteran’s Project. And Doc is grateful for the financial donations

It’s an invitation to get all vets out of the house for some social interaction with others, and the financial donation is important. But the outlet for the vets to meet and get to know other vets may be more important as an event than the $

Wings & Wheels has also thought of something else very important.

Bar Harbor native Danny Dunn has been fighting lymphoma for many years. He needs a donor match. And there will be an organization called Be the Match attending.  This is a national marrow donor program.  Testing at the event for a stem cell donor, to assist Danny and others. Information on Be the Match here.

This will be an incredible event. Thanks to the 5 guys with the vision.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
