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.
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!
The museum is always thinking of new ways to continue making experiences of our visitors better each year. In 2015, we’ll be bringing involvement of our patrons to a whole new level. This coming year, visitors will have a the opportunity to lend a hand in the rebuild and restoration a very special machine — the 2016 WTT Raffle Bike, to be raffled of in November 2016. Construction has already begun, and we’ll be relying on you to get this one ready for the road.
WTT is also planning a gala fundraiser for The Home Depot Foundation, whose mission is to improve the homes and lives of our U.S. military veterans and their families. The museum has long been a supporter of all of our veterans, and looks to expand that support this 2015. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation, who spends millions annually to for veterans in our communities.
Perhaps the biggest news for 2015 is the Wheels Through Time MEGA RAFFLE! Wheels Through Time and the Amelia Island Charities will be offering a once-in-
a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the rarest and most significant motorcycles in the world — the 1936 Crocker Hemi Twin. This machine — the 8th Crocker of less than 70 produced — remains the earliest running production Crocker in existance, has been heralded by experts as one of the world’s most significant motorcycles. A full feature story and details of the raffle are coming soon. This is one drawing you don’t want to miss!
Wheels Through Time will be opening for the 2015 season on April 2nd. Please stay tuned for a full list of events on the museum’s website coming soon.
In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled and ears open for historic machines in your neighborhood! Dale and crew are on the hunt for history in unusual places, and are always looking for the next rusty relic for “What’s In The Barn?”
