Barton County Historical Society will provide an event for car lovers from 1-4 p.m. this Sunday at its Historical Village and Museum, located just south of the Great Bend Arkansas River Bridge on U.S. 281. Members of Vintage Wheels Car Club, D and B Motors, and other friends of the society will bring classic vehicles from the past to display on the grounds.

The Vintage Wheels club was founded in May, 1975. Some of the charter members are still active in the club.

The Golden Belt Carvers will demonstrate, and the Golden Belt Express, the historical society’s little train, will be running for young visitors.

There is no admission charge for the afternoon’s events and everybody is welcome, said Beverly Komarek, executive director of the Barton County Historical Village and Museum. Parking for visitors will be convenient for non exhibitors. Although there are no concessions, some snacks will be available.
