Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum (WAAAM) will feature restoration projects for its Second Saturday event on Jan. 9. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., volunteers will offer insight on how WAAAM inspects its incoming vehicles and gets them back in driving and flying condition.
“The knowledge of our volunteers is amazing,” said Museum Director Judy Newman. “This is an opportunity to get close up to some of the projects you’ve always wondered about, like our 1922 Velie, and also to see what we do when something new comes in or how we maintain what we have.”
The WAAAM checklist for safety inspections is quite lengthy and visitors will be treated to a special assessment of the newest vehicle to be donated to the museum — a 1931 Chevy 4-Door Phaeton, she added. The airplane restoration shop will be open to tour at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Weather permitting, flying and driving of several vehicles will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Admission is $14 for adults, $12 for seniors 65 and over, and $6 for children ages 5-18. Children under 4 are free.
