Calling all Willys: April 8 Second Saturday at WAAAM

WAAAM volunteer Jack Woolf of Portland, with the 1915 Willys Overland Model 82 touring car he donated in 2016.

If you have a Willys automobile, bring it down to the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile to show it off during the April 8 Second Saturday event.

“WAAAM had nine Willys donated in 2016 and we wanted to highlight them for visitors,” says Museum Director Judy Newman. “While several of these new donations were project cars in need of restoration, we have finished a few and are excited to offer rides in them this Second Saturday for the first time since being restored.”

The action will happen between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Airplane Restoration Shop will also be open for a tour at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. (www.waaa museum.org)

Open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum collects, restores, preserves and exhibits airplanes from the Dawn of Flight through the Golden Age of Flight and historically significant cars and trucks from the first half of the 20th century. WAAAM is located at 1600 Air Museum Road. Admission for adults is $16, 6 and over is $14, kids between 5 and 18 are $7, under 4 is free.
