Racing legend Bobby Unser will meet, greet, and sign autographs

Estrella Warbirds Museum and the Woodland Auto Display in Paso Robles will host the 6th annual Warbirds, Wings and Wheels Car Show on May 10 with over 250 classic cars, hot rods, motorcycles, race cars and boats on display alongside military vehicles and planes and the auto display.

One of the greatest names in racing history, Bobby Unser, is coming to Paso to participate in car show. Bobby worked his way up the ranks the hard way, plenty of dirt tracks and a lead foot on the gas pedal. Thirteen times he was the fastest up Pikes Peak; four times he was the International Race of Champions winner (IROC); 49 times he held the pole position in Indy race cars and three times he took home the trophy as the Indy 500 race winner. Bobby will be on hand to meet and greet participants and spectators and sign autographs.

The Estrella Warbirds Museum houses an extensive collection of WWI, WWII, Korean War and Vietnam War planes and a vast array of military memorabilia. The Woodland Auto Display has become known as one of the best automotive car collections in California. Check out the Sprint cars, Midgets, Indy cars, NASCAR race cars, hot rods, classic cars, motorcycles and antique bicycles and be sure to check out all the pictures and posters covering the 10,000 square feet of wall space.

Ever had a ride in a P51 Mustang on your bucket list? Don’t miss the chance for a ride in one for $1200; or maybe try a T34 trainer for $300 or a T28 hangar for $650. A portion of each plane ride is tax deductible as a donation to the museum.

The North County Cloud Clippers, dedicated to the building and flying of radio controlled model aircraft, will be doing flying exhibitions at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. They will have a display of their airplanes for all to observe up close and personal.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company will be on hand pouring some of their award winning beers along with several food vendors, craft vendors and historical displays.

Admission to the car show is free to spectators and all museum buildings are open free to the public the day of the car show. All proceeds from the car show go to support the Estrella Warbirds Museum which is a 501©(3) non-profit corporation.
