If classic cars could talk, oh the stories they would tell! Every one of the 40 collector classics that will be featured in WKTV’s live productions of “DreamWheels!” is proof of that.
Stop by the old Klingman’s parking lot during Metro Cruise and participate in the live audience to hear about each car’s unique history from the owners themselves. Production times are on Friday, August 21st from 8 to 10 p.m. and on Saturday, August 22nd from 4 to 6 p.m. Not only will you be enthralled with these classic beauties but you’ll be entertained by watching a live television production!
You’ll see a rare 1958 Packard Hawk. Rare because it was built for only one year and only 588 were sold. But this particular car is also priceless because it belonged to Mark White’s father, Don White Sr., and he purchased it new on January 23, 1958. It was the last year the Packard name would be on an automobile. Still maintaining its originality 100 percent, the Packard Hawk’s exterior is jewel beige with a brown leather interior. White says that while his dad paid $4500 for it (he still has the original bill of sale), to him the car is priceless and it’s still “dad’s car.”
The exterior romany red/snowcap white and the interior romany red/charcoal gray combination make this 1956 Studebaker Golden Hawk a rare beauty. It was one of only two cars built with this color scheme. It was owner Roy Pearson’s first car in 1964. He bought it at a police auction in Edgewater, Colorado for $155. The car’s previous history is rich with speculation of mafia connections. Again, if cars could talk, oh the stories they would tell!
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. There will be a crosswalk between Rogers Plaza and the old Klingman’s for easy access. Best of all – admission is free!
