O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels Custom Car and Hot Rod Show makes return after year off due to COVID-19
The 59th annual O’Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels Custom Car and Hot Rod Show made a triumphant return to the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds over the weekend.
People from around the country came with candy apple painted cars, hot rods, muscle cars, imports, motorcycles and more.
People with the event said it's good to be back and see everyone again.
The show is the latest Milwaukee area event that has returned after being cancelled last year due to COVID-19, this year would've been the 60th year had it not been cancelled last year.
"Since last year this particular facility was used as a hospital, so we weren't even able to come to the event," said long-time event attendee and announce Doc Riley, "and it's just so good to be back, you see some of the people that are here, people you've made friends with in the building, the building operations crew, the management, the marketing, plus some of the local car owners that are here."
Also part of the event was a charity auction of art going to benefit Children's Wisconsin.
