Written by  March 4, 2022

  It's February, which can only mean, it's time to get events kicked off around here. And what better way to get started than a chance to get your shinny hot rides out and show off your hard work.

The 51st Annual World of Wheels show in Birmingham is the perfect place to showcase your rides and for a weekend of fun for a family outing.

 

  Along with all the beautiful cars, trucks, jeeps & motorcycles, there were performances from KTS Action Sports Stunt Team; these guys are a little nuts but pretty exciting to watch, "The Mandalorian" &"Transformer" along with the "Just Keep Smiling Characters", Hot Wheels Drag Track & Bungee jump for the little ones, Red Farmer (racing legend), Alabama football #13-Malachi Moore, Von Hot Rod: Pin Striper & "Master of the Fine Line", and on the Weill Wrecker Service Celebrity stage with: Erik Estrada (Ponch from CHIPS) & "Kamikaze" -Chris Day -Street Outlaws for the big kids!

  The "Back to the Future" car got it's "Flux" going and headed back to 2022 to make the show. And there was a "Jeep Invasion" going on in the South Hall. Funny story; there were several more jeeps scheduled to be in the show but when they got there and discovered that they couldn't actually leave with their jeeps each night to go home and bring them back the next day, they decided to pull out!  

  The "Faith Riders" and Birmingham H.O.G groups were back promoting their charity rides, and on an exciting note, Cycle Connections & the World of Wheels contest winner from last year; James & Ashley Winters (WVC Motorcycle Garage) who brought 2 bikes last year, were back this year with a friend (Lindsay Morgan) AND 4 bikes, and of course these guys with their beautiful rides went home with some new hardware. ALSO, the Alabama Law Tigers and local painter "Showtime" who had his usual spot showcasing some of his fine works, along with the fine paint jobs that the Weill Wreckers sport around on a regular bases.

  Promoters, Sonny McLean and son Adam, told us that there were more motorcycles there this year than there have been in a long time, thanks to a little push from us; we would like to see a whole lot more motorcycle's showcased there, we have SO many here in the state, I think they should be represented there at the longest running & most popular show in the stateIMG 9517IMG 9518IMG 9519IMG 9510IMG 9511IMG 9512IMG 9513IMG 9514IMG 9516IMG 9492IMG 9493IMG 9494IMG 9495IMG 9499IMG 9501IMG 9502IMG 9505IMG 9507IMG 9509DSC00040DSC00041DSC00042DSC00043DSC00044DSC00046DSC00047DSC00052DSC09982DSC09983DSC09984DSC09985DSC09986DSC09987DSC09988DSC09989DSC09990DSC09996DSC00036DSC00038DSC00039 DSC00027DSC00029DSC00031DSC00033DSC00034DSC00002DSC00004DSC00006DSC00008DSC00009DSC00010DSC00011DSC00012DSC00014DSC00015DSC00020DSC00021DSC00017
