Back and Better than Ever: Warbirds, Wings and Wheels 9

It’s that time of year again! On May 13, classic cars, historic war planes and an automotive “mega” swap meet will combine for the ninth annual Warbirds, Wings & Wheels (WWW9) event in Paso Robles at the Estrella Warbird Museum.

This memorable event draws visitors of all ages from near and far – whether they are history buffs, car enthusiasts, or simply want to honor the sacrifices of those who piloted military aircrafts and learn more about historic aircrafts and vehicles. The event is a great one for families and individuals alike.

Those who have been to the event in years’ past will be pleased to see the return of hundreds of classic and vintage cars on display, with owners on site to talk shop. The chance to look under the hoods of rare and restored cars never fails to delight attendees – whether they are avid car aficionados or casual onlookers.

Aviation fans will have the exciting opportunity to see a few restored planes fly overhead, and will also be invited into the Estrella Warbird Museum to check out wartime aircrafts and memorabilia and speak with museum staff.  

With more than 250 vendors on-site to showcase automotive parts and collectibles, the Mega Swap Meet will add a fun, new experience to the already popular event. This swap meet was held separately last year and was such a success that event organizers combined it with the WWW9 event.

If that’s not enough, there will be delicious food from local eateries, a kid’s zone with a bounce house, music, a Firestone Walker beer garden and raffle prizes.

WWW9 is a truly special, one-of-a-kind excursion that allows current generations to take a glimpse back into key moments in time and commemorate the eras and events that still influence their lives today.  Last year’s WWW8 event drew about 4,000 people, and with this year’s addition of the Mega Swap Meet, this may be the biggest crowd ever!

The event will run from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults and free for children under 12. For more information or to register for WWW9, visit
