WAAAM’s antique military vehicles, like the rest of our vehicles, still drive, and our military planes still fly! We regularly take our military vehicles out to lead local parades, and our military planes out to do fly-overs on ceremonial occasions.

L Birds flying in Hood River. And, like our other antique vehicles, our collection of military vehicles is still growing. Visit WAAAM today and you’ll see jeeps ... as well as small trucks, and more from WWII, the Korean War, and from the Viet Nam era. Visit us tomorrow, and who knows what more you might see!

Come on any Second Saturday of the month, and you might be able to take a drive in one of our antique military vehicles... and share "war stories" with the drivers.

We hope this webpage gives you a sense for what you'll see when you visit WAAAM, but there’s so much more to see and say, so ... please visit soon!
