PRINCETON — Area car enthusiasts, their families and friends, and anyone else looking for a fun outing on Saturday can head to Princeton for the annual Old Wheels car show at the First Lutheran Church.

Located at 116 N. Pleasant St., the First Lutheran Church has hosted its Old Wheels show in the church parking lot for the past six years. But for the first time, there will be no minimum age for the submitted entries, rather all model years are welcomed this year.

As announced earlier, show participants are asked to arrive between 8 and 9:30 a.m. Saturday, with the show time for the public set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

In addition to the expected vintage and antique cars, Saturday’s show will also include several tractors, motorcycles and stationary engines. As in previous years, Ted Johnson of Princeton will also be on hand with his miniature toy train to give kids, and those young at heart, a ride around the show.

On Wednesday, a spokesperson for the church said there is no admission cost to the car show. Refreshments, including dogs and soft drinks, will be available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Also, there will be a bake sale. Live music will be provided by a deejay.

As reported earlier in the Bureau County Republican, the Old Wheels show was established by the church as a way to reach out into the community to build fellowship with neighbors and to make new friends.
