Winthrop Vintage Wheels Show
Saturday, September 7, 2013
For 38 years Winthrop has hosted a antique car show. New this year we are including vintage wheels of all types into the show!
This is an incredible opportunity to see:
- Antique Cars and Trucks
- Vintage Motorcycles
- Vintage Travel Trailers
- Antique Tractors
- Antique Bicycles
This is your chance to see some beautiful, restored, iconic wheeled treasures up close. Winthrop's old boardwalks and historic character add to the appeal of this event as the historic cars and motorcycles take over all of Winthrop's main street, the travel trailers will be showcased at the beautiful Pine Near RV Park and antique tractors will be displayed at the Shafer Museum, just 3 blocks from downtown. Antique bicycles will be displayed at Methow Cycle and Sport located 2 blocks from downtown. A automotive/wheel-related swap meet will also be held at the Winthrop Barn.
