As the 11th Annual 28th Street Metro Cruise gets ready to celebrate “Cruisin’ Back to the 20th Century,” WKTV is getting to roll out the red carpet for “DreamWheels!”
Over 40 rare and classic vehicles will be featured on the runway Friday evening and Saturday afternoon and presented by David Knisley from SPEED Television and Kim Carson from WLAV FM and WZZM’s “Take 5.” Experience Metro Cruise in a whole new way by participating as a member of the live audience as WKTV produces two live two-hour shows!
It’s the perfect way give your feet a break, sit down, relax and still take in classic cars such as these:
A 1959 Chrysler Imperial Crown. Here’s a few facts that make it so hot for the red carpet. It has push button transmission located on the instrument panel, a Silver Crest Landau Roof of stainless steel, six-way swing out front seats that make it easy to get into and out of the car AND a radio foot control on the floor board. The radio will seek the next AM radio station while both hands are on the steering wheel. Pretty high tech for 56 years ago!
Owners Orrin and Fay Dorr have collected a total of 16 Imperials since 2004. You’ll find out how and why during the show.
This 1931 Packard Super 8 Roadster was built for the Salon Auto Show at The Commodore Hotel in New York in December of 1930 but wasn’t finished in time so it did not make it to that show.
Tom and Donna Tuls bought the car in 2012, started restoration in 2013 and finished it just this past June. It has been received three awards in that short time.
See these cars and many more during WKTV’s live production of “DreamWheels!” It all takes place outside in the old Klingman’s parking lot across from Rogers Plaza. The show goes live on Friday, August 21 from 8 to 10 p.m. and again with new cars on Saturday, August 22 from 4 to 6 p.m. Best of all – admission is free!
