James Dean Racing Tribute at Wings N Wheels Show Shafter CA

Postby Mona » Sat Aug 11, 2018 8:38 am

Hello to everyone! I am a volunteer with Minter Field Air Museum, a nonprofit Military History and Air Museum located in Shafter, California at the Minter Field Airport district. In May of 1955 James Dean raced at Minter Field, one of his last outings before his fatal accident, placing 1st in his class and 3rd overall. Shafter is located 20 mins outside of Bakersfield California and is 2 1/2 hours from Los Angeles.

This November 3rd, Minter Field Air Museum and California Pinups and Patriots are hosting our first Classic/Hot Rod Car Show and Air Plane Fly In with a tribute to James Dean Racing at the field.

In addition to Rockabilly Music performances, food, vendors and a Pinup Contest we have several Military Fly Over Air events in the works. We are also working on a Friday night showing of Rebel Without a Cause at a historic downtown theater location.

Last but not least, if there is anyone with a Dean replica Spyder that would be willing to make the trip to our show in Shafter we would certainly like to speak with you. Our plan is to set up a tribute area with a Porsche 1955 Spyder and we would like to have the car owner present the Best of Show Trophy. All makes and models of cars are welcome and we would like to get as many vintage porsches to attend as we can. We are also looking for collectables and memorabilia to display. The Museum has a several pictures and at one time had the original trophy which has since returned to Indiana.
