Willy G. Davidson’s custom Mercury was one of the eye-popping cars at the Milwaukee World of Wheels Feb. 21-23 at State Fair Park. Though it wasn’t on a raised platform like the Ridler Award and Legend Cup cars, the tail-dragging, fender-skirted burgundy Merc was a winner in anyone’s book.
The 2014 Milwaukee World of Wheels also had a good turnout of Pontiacs from a 1950 Chieftain Deluxe coupe up to a two-tone Safari, a cool Catalina and a gaggle of GTOs. Local hot rod cubs like the Losers (who really are winners with their shiny rides) and the Cheaters (who favor the traditional style coupes and roadsters) were out in force.
The show featured more racing cars than ever before, an under-construction Corvette restomod, custom semi trucks, tractor pull champions, dragsters, track roadsters, Tri-Five Chevys, Chevelles, Camaros , Mopar muscle, Total Performance Fords and a few AMCs built down the road in Kenosha. There were several Batmobiles on special display, including one from the fleet of the early TV show.
Guest stars over the weekend included “Danielle” (Colby Cushman) of “American Pickers,” wrestling super star Shawn Michels and Shane Harper who is “Spencer Walsh” in Disney’s “Good Luck Charlie” movie. Rounding out the headline attractions were the traditional hot rod Motorama, the Pinstriping Legends competition and the Dance & Fashion Show.
