America on Wheels anniversary


One Allentown museum is revving up for its anniversary.

The America on Wheels museum is celebrating its sixth birthday this weekend with a slew of special events and new exhibits.

They'll be showing off "orphan cars," which are cars whose parent companies no longer exist, Indian motorcycles, Mustangs, and more!


Organizers say it's a celebration of how far the museum has come.

"Every year America on Wheels has grown in some area, even through difficult times, I'm happy to say we added an auto art museum. We added a 1950s hubcap cafe. We added a restoration learning center, and this year we're adding a wonderful safety square," explained Linda Merkel, America on Wheels' executive director.

Lehigh Valley Grand Prix will also be set up in the parking lot to show the dangers of drinking or texting while driving.

There will also be a bulldog beauty contest!

Check the America on Wheels website for a schedule of events.

The museum is located at 5 North Front Street in Allentown.
