Oh The Places Youll Go!

Park It at the Wheels Museum

BY M. BRIANNA STALLINGS So much of New Mexico’s history, economy and culture has been shaped by transportation. We’re known the world over for our connections to the many ways people get around, whether by hot air balloon, train, plane or automobile. Learn more about our role in rolling forward with the Wheels Museum (1100 Second St. SW), a nonprofit organization located at the Albuquerque Rail Yards on the site of the historic Santa Fe Railroad locomotive repair shops. Dedicated to the preservation of transportation history in Albuquerque and New Mexico, the mission of this unique museum is creating educational exhibits made up of collections of wheeled vehicles and related ephemera, including publications, maps, blueprints, historical photos and more. The Wheels Museum is available for educational programs, tours, events and presentations. Wheels1-22Car nuts are invited to attend Wheels @ Wheels, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, at the Railyard Blacksmith Shop (First at Hazeldine SW). One hundred cars will be on display, repping 10 categories: classic, antique, muscle, hot rod, custom mod, rat rod, lowrider, original, supercar and vintage. Wheels @ Wheels will feature door prizes, raffles, trophies, entertainment and food. Carrying on the vehicular tradition of New Mexico is the goal of Motiva Performance, a locally owned company specializing in high-horsepower forced induction systems and a Wheels @ Wheels Platinum sponsor. Gold, silver and bronze sponsorships are still available. The Wheels Museum will be open on Sundays for guests of the annual Rail Yard Market (held May through October). To register as a Wheels @ Wheels participant or sponsor, contact Bill Pearman at (505) 353-0912 or For more info on the museum, visit or call (505) 243-6269. (Photo Credit: Wheels Museum)
