TOMAHAWK Wis. (WAOW) To celebrate all of those who fought for our country, the 25th annual Main Street Memories Car Show took place in Tomahawk.

“I served during the Korean War, 1950-1954. Today, it’s a remembrance for all the people who served prior to me and defended our country” said Bob Kangas of Tomahawk.

But it’s not just any car show. From the classics to the Marvel movie remakes, to jeeps used in the war. “It’s my son’s jeep, the body is from 1941 and the engine parts are from 1950. It’s a Humpty Dumpty ride” said Kangas.

The car show has been around for 25 years, many car owners come back every year to show off their cars but some are just getting started. “I really liked it last year, 300 plus cars here. I won my class, special interest…that’s for movie cars and other special cars, so I came back” said Bob Henri of Ashland.

A remake of the transformer from the Marvel movie, Bumblebee. “This car has, helmets with voices and eyes that light up, the custom dash and the seat covers from Australia,” said Henri.

However Sunday wasn’t just about the cars, there was food, drinks, local vendors and even a bounce house for the kids.

The car show, gave everyone from movie buffs to veterans…a chance to strut their stuff.
