Wells Fargo Auto Museum Needs Volunteers During Steele County Fair
The Steele County Free Fair is looking for a few more volunteers to help staff the Wells Fargo Auto Museum during the fair. If you have an interest in old cars and could work one or two shifts of two hours, contact the fair office at (507) 451-5305.
Les Abraham says this year's display will feature cars from the 1960s. Cars confirmed for display include a '63 Corvette split window coupe, a '64 Pontiac Tempest, a '64 Corvair, a '65 Studebaker, a '65 Pontiac, a '66 Thunderbird, a '67 Pontiac, a '66 Dodge, a '67 Cougar, a '67 Mercury convertible, a '67 Mustang convertible and more. Abraham, and fellow auto museum superintendents Steve Stansberry and Sandy MacIntosh, were guests recently on Todd Hale's Fair Talk on AM 1390.
Ron Janning, one of the organizers of the Old Iron Show at the fair, reports that the north side of the blacktop up by the Village of Yesteryear will be a gray area. Gray tractors and machinery from the late '20s through 1935 will be featured. New this year will be Janning's newly acquired 1915 Rob Bell all-wood threshing machine. He plans to belt it to his 1927 Rumely tractor for the fair.
Dates for this year's fair are Aug. 18-23.
