Winnipeg World of Wheels Sneak Preview

Winnipeg World of Wheels opens today, which un-officially opens the car show season.  Unlike most shows, this one ain’t free-$9, tickets available at the door or at any Piston Ring location here in town.  It’s a small price to pay, considering what you get to see.  And while you’re there, look out for the guy with the camera following the A&W Root Bear around-that’s me.  I will be there all weekend following the show for A&W’s “Cruisin’ the Dub,” and we’d love to get a shot of you getting a free Root Bear Hug.
