‘Wheels’ Looking Forward to Record Breaking 2015

Wheels Through Time would like to send out a big “Thank You” to all of our visitors, friends, and family for helping make 2014 our best year yet!  Last year, we had the pleasure of hosting over 120,000 visitors through our doors — the action was non-stop, and each and every person that made us a destination lent a hand in our success.

The “Bike House” was found during season 3 of “What’s In The Barn?” after Dale follows a lead to rural North Georgia.

While it might seem impossible to top such a great 2014 season, Wheels Through Time has already been working hard to bring its success in 2015 to a whole new level!!!

“What’s In The Barn?” is back for a 3rd on Velocity TV, chasing Dale and Matt across the country in search of rare and historic machines for display inside the museum.  This season, Dale heads south to Texas for one of the World’s biggest swapmeets then to Michigan for a high-class automotive show that brings him back to the previous home of one of the world’s rarest motorcycles.  They chase down uncertain lead in North Georgia to a “Bike House”, and are blown away at what they find!  Eight more episodes begin airing in late spring.  A new “What’s in the Barn?” Exhibit will also be opening in May of 2015, showcasing many of the finds from season 3!
