Come out and enjoy the sun gleaming off the gorgeous cars In Vettes for Vets & American Muscle!
Come out and enjoy the sun gleaming off the gorgeous cars at Vettes for Vets & American Muscle on Memorial Day 10 am – 3 pm. Monday, May 26th will be a great day of sunshine and memorial for our veterans who will enjoy a 50/50 raffle, hot delicious food, FREE museum admission, and an up-close look at the Bell UH-1 Iroquois “Huey” helicopter. Veterans and spectators can enjoy the glorious car show for FREE in the parking lot south of the Museum, so bring the whole family!
A great addition to this car show is that everyone who joins us will get to see a real military helicopter up-close and even get to climb inside! The Bell UH-1 Iroquois, unofficially “Huey”, is a military helicopter powered by a single, turbo shaft engine, with a two-bladed main rotor and tail rotor. The helicopter was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the United States Army’s requirement for a medical evacuation. The display of this helicopter is made possible by Chapter North of the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association (CCN-VHPA).
To add to the fun, veterans will receive FREE admission to the museum with their DD214, VA card, picture proving military service, etc. Current exhibits include “Make-A-Move” a hands-on exhibit chronicling the history of how cars move and “It’s Electrifying!” Presented by SMUD a historical look at alternative fuel and electric vehicles in California.
Vettes for Vets & American Muscle is sponsored by Performance Chevrolet.
