Headline attractions include the show's first-ever Monster Truck freestyle exhibition starring Dan Rodoni's burly beast "The Patriot" crushing cars, doing jumps, catching big air and making noise; plus military aviation wonders like the Japanese "Zero" (Japan's top World War II fighter) and B-25 Bombers to P-51 Mustangs (America's premier World War II fighter) and the most famous aircraft ever made - a B-17 "Flying Fortress" from the

Commemorative Air Force; next up is Max Loffgren's POW/MIA '55 Chevy dragster, built as a tribute to the 3,500+ American servicemen and women listed of prisoners of war or missing in action from the Vietnam War; and a special display by Arlen Ness Motorcycles aka  "King of the Custom Bike"; in addition to the Blastolene Brothers extreme, mega-modified machines Big Bertha, Sneaky Pete and Road Kill; AAA's NASCAR exhibit featuring a #6 Mark Martin show car and racing simulator; and "World Record Wonderland" headed by Mike Akatiff's super sleek "Ack Attack" motorcycle streamliner, a one time Bonneville world record holder.

Proud owners show up in cars that come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Spectators will get a rare up-close look at antique horseless carriages and Ford Model T's, fanciful touring and luxury cars, powerful sports cars, custom cars and street rods, muscle cars, vintage and modern era high-performance race cars, quirky art and pedal cars, modified street machines with cutting edge styles, exotic high-performance cars, stylish European cars, ultra cool low-riders, sporty compacts, modified imports with flashy graphics, fashionable hip-hop urban show cars, homebuilt kit cars, super-charged turbo cars and trucks, "green" technology & alternative fuel vehicles, streamliners, dragsters, funny cars, gassers, and jet cars.

Hundreds of aviation wonders are expected to be on display - stylish homebuilts, classics from the 40's and 50's, exceptional vintage warbirds, and sport and ultralight aircraft. See a spectacular display including the B-17, a Japanese Zero fighter, a B-25 Bomber, P-51 Mustangs, an F-4 Wildcat frontline Navy fighter, a P-40 "Flying Tiger", YAK Russian fighters, a Hawker Seafury British fighter, a Coast Guard C-130 and rescue helicopter, a rare 1949 Piper Clipper seaplane, T-6 and T-28 military trainers.

The most curious and fascinating displays are the large and small engines collected and refurbished by members of the Early Days Gas Engine & Tractor Association. Their amazing array of flywheel engines are enough to power antique washing machines, lawn mowers, and an entire Lilliputian factory. On the larger side are several pieces from Roots of Motive Power's collection of restored logging equipment like spool donkeys and Buffalo Springfield steamrollers.
