Every car has a story at Iola Old Car Show


A longtime tradition is underway in central Wisconsin. The Iola Old Car Show in Waupaca County is a national attraction, and every car there has a story.

One of those cars is owned by Bill Haire. He's loved cars since he was eight years old. He traveled from Omaha, Nebraska to join thousands of other car enthusiasts at the show. And his car is attracting attention.

"I started doing woodworking when I was a kid," said Haire. "I've always wanted to do a wooden car, and this is the combination of that desire."

The car show revved up Thursday. This year is its 40th anniversary. In addition to all the cars, thousands of vendors are on site. All of them are thrilled about cars.

"The people are fun, the place is fun, the cars are beautiful, this is well organized, what's not to like?" said Haire.

Organizer Joan Schultz says she likes everything—even the stress of putting it all together.

"Your adrenaline gets pumping, and you really get into it," she said.

There's a lot to expect from the show. But Haire just wants one thing.

"I want another five thousand people to tell me how beautiful this car is," he said.

If you want to tell him, head to the show. More information is available at http://www.iolaoldcarshow.com/.
