This year, WTT Curator Dale Walksler has been asked to help put together the exclusive list of invitees in the Motorcycle Class at Amelia Island. Founded in 1996 by businessman and car collector, Bill Warner, the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is recognized as one of the top celebrations of the automobile in the country. Each year, hundreds of rare and elegant automobiles (and motorcycles) are invited to compete for honors and are judged on their authenticity, history, function, style, and quality of restoration. To date, the Concours has helped raise millions of dollars for various charitable institutions. For more information, visit https://www.ameliaconcours.org/.

Join us this Thursday-Monday, March 27-31 at Wheels Through Time for the museum’s 2014 season opening weekend! We spent the winter hard at work digging up new machines, improving exhibits and displays, and doing everything we can to make your 2014 museum visit the best it can be.
We’ll be open at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday the 27th, and will be holding demonstrations and exhibitions of many of America’s rarest motorcycles throughout the weekend.
Come see our feature exhibit “What’s In the Barn?” , which displays new machines found during the making of Season 2 of our show “What’s In The Barn?” on Velocity.
See you there!
When: July 3-7, 2014
Where: Wheels Through Time Museum
Wheels Through Time opened its doors in Maggie Valley, North Carolina on July 4th, 2002. Over the last 12 years, almost 3/4 million people have walked through our doors, helping make the museum into what it is today. So on our 12th Anniversary weekend, we’d like to thank each and every one of our visitors, fans, friends, and supporters.
With over 350 of America’s rarest and most historic machines on display, the museum continues to grow as it strives to preserve our motoring past. Come on out during our anniversary weekend to help us celebrate.
This year, the registered riders will meet, once again, at Wheels Through Time museum in Maggie Valley, NC for a welcome dinner and reception Thursday afternoon and evening, July 24, 2014. We leave the next morning (Friday, July 25) and ride to Chattanooga, TN where we will be treated to a tour and dinner at the Coker Tire world headquarters. The next morning we depart and ride to Red Boiling Springs, TN for a reception and dinner at Cyclemos Motorcycle Museum.
The ride will be mostly on beautiful backroads where we can travel at our on speed without worrying about modern highway traffic. We will ride roughly 160 miles each day with plenty of stops to enjoy the scenery as well as gas-up, eat (hopefully not associated) and check out each other’s bikes.
Join us at the museum for a great weekend in motorcycle history. The museum is holding its Post-Veterans Day Weekend Salute, and all veterans, active-duty, and retired military receive complimentary museum admission.
On Saturday, November 15th, the museum will host the annual Haywood County Toy Run for the 11th year in a row. Each year, over 1500 toy-runners make their way to the museum to support those in need during the holiday season.
The museum will be also be holding its 11th Annual Motorcycle Raffle drawing on Saturday, November 15th – WTT will be giving away two Harley-Davidson VL Flathead Bobbers beautifully restored at Wheels Through Time. Two winning tickets will be drawn, and two (or maybe one!) lucky winners will take home a piece of 2-wheel history. Bring friends and family, as this weekend will be one of the best museum events of the year.
