Chevelle to roll out for car show

Staff writer

One of Mennonite Heritage and Agricultural Museum’s stars for its 14th annual antique, classic car, truck, and motorcycle show this weekend will be a 1970 autumn gold Chevelle owned by Elroy Wiens, Goessel.

Wiens purchased the car Nov. 7, 1970, and it has been stored in a garage all its life. With the help of Kevin’s Body Shop, Lowell Heinrich and Romney Heinrichs restored the body and paint of the car while Wiens rebuilt the power train and restored the interior.

This will be the Chevelle’s first appearance at the museum’s show, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 200 N. Poplar St. in Goessel. Free admission to the museum will be offered all day. A museum “garage” sale at 8 a.m. and a hot dog meal at 11 a.m. also are planned. Exhibitors can enter vehicles for $10, with vehicles and motorcycles from 1900 to 1970 in any condition welcome.

More information is available at (620) 367-8200.
