Wheels & Wings: Hill AFB Museum Car Show

Pretty cool concept for a HechtSpeed'er, right? Warbirds/Jet Fighters and Hot Rods! What else does a Hecht need? :) This Wheels & Wings is put on by The Hill Air Force Base Museum every year. Here are some of my favorite pics!

This shot was taken on our way out. A military land vehicle with a line-up of Hot Rods and Custom cars next to the Hill AFB Museum sign. Cool!

I was hoping there'd be more 'birds out with the Hot Rods. They didn't bring any outside from the museum. They had a business jet and this DC-3. It looks awesome next to this '32 roadster. Looks like it could be a pic taken in '45 eh?

Here's another cool shot of the DC-3 with a custom coupe. Don't know much about this car? What is it? I see an Indian head there, so it must be a '30's Pontiac.

Another shot of that '32 and DC-3. It was just such a cool photo op.

OK, you guys know I've been into Model A and 32-34 Roadsters and Coupes. This Black Beauty Roadster with white walls was probably my favorite ride at the show. This thing has a traditional hot rod look that is just timeless. This car will look Boss in another 77 years. Beautiful!

The Mormon Meteor showed up and was parked in the Fighter Gallery hangar. This thing is big! Love the orange and blue paint scheme too!

Here's THE hot rod of the wild blue yonder! F-104 Star Fighter. Love it in this faded bare metal look! It was missing engine, wings and stab, but hopefully the Museum will resto this thing. Maybe a resto-mod? Slap in a "big block" motor from an F15 or something! ha ha
