Don't forget the cars. There are over 130 cars in the collection at last count. Whether you want to see the 1914 Detroit Electric, a Ford Model A or Model T, a Packard, a Studebaker or even a Locomobile, you are sure to find your favorite. Aircraft, automobiles, motorcycles, tractors, military jeeps and engines all get their day in the sun again at WAAAM.

The Second Saturday of the month WAAAM calls the volunteers to action! We love flying and driving these wonderful artifacts and invite you to share in these special days at the museum.

read more › At the dawn of the automotive era tractors were more like mini-locomotives. Before long people were turning average automobiles into mechanical farm implements and soon the tractor as we know it was born. In short, tractors are cool. WAAAM has a few tractors and more toy tractor models than anyone we know too. There are no project tractors in the WAAAM Collection at this time. That being said - our 1910 Aultman & Taylor Steam Tractor is always in need of some TLC to keep it up and going. The first major batch of donors to revive the tractor can be found here.
