Drive a 1930s, 40s, or 50s auto at WAAAM! Rev the Engine!

Take a spin through yesteryear by getting behind the wheel of an era's autos. Choose from the 30s, 40s, or 50s!

This one-day class is packed with history, stories, maintenance, and yep, you guessed it, DRIVING!

It is not every day that you get the chance to go back in time and get hands-on experience in operating an old car. Do you know when windshield wipers were first popularized? What about car radios or air conditioning? Power steering? Take these classes for this rare opportunity to learn all about it and get in on the action or give it as a gift to a friend. After you've learned a bit about some automotive technology firsts for your choice of era's cars you get to drive the cars and truly feel the differences in how it handles compared to modern day vehicles. This hands on experience enables you to really appreciate America's automotive roots.
