The Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum near Ashland is hosting one of the biggest car shows in the state this weekend. Marketing Director Deb Hermann says the 2nd Annual Nebraska Highway 66 Concourse Classic is set for July 21st and 22.
More than 120 classic autos and motorcycles will be displayed around historic aircraft inside the museum. A committee of collectors personally handpicked and invited rare auto owners to participate. Hermann says, “A 1910 Ford Model T, a 1919 Excelsior motorcycle and a 1950 convertible, which was a Rocket 88 so some unique and rare cars and then some classics and some special interest cars. We have a 1910 Hupmobile barn find.”
The public will be given ballot cards as they enter the museum and will be able to vote for their favorite. The awards ceremony will be held Sunday a 2 p.m. General admission applies but the show will be included in that price.
Last year more than 4,000 attended the first annual event.
