The America on Wheels Museum is driving redevelopment on Allentown's east side. Volunteers keep the car lover's paradise chugging right along and recently Rob and Wendy got a taste of the action.

Linda Merkel says that America on Wheels is part of the redevelopment of Allentown

From Mack Trucks' mascot, to the bike that Pee-Wee pedaled every corner conveys a lesson in mobility. And most of the folks who keep this museum in motion are happy to do it for free!

Merkel says that their volunteers are very important, and that they're the heart and soul of the organization.

Opportunities abound, even if you don't know a carburetor from a catalytic converter. People are needed for everything from moving the vehicles to working in the gift shop. And working the admissions desk to helping with special events. &

America on Wheels has just over 50 volunteers. The museum is hoping to double that number. You have to be at least 17 years old to join the team.
