Antique and classic wooden boars will be on display Saturday and Sunday on Lake Arrowhead. This annual event has grown in participation and popularity over the years. Rim of the World Historical Society will have a booth with hats, T-shirts and literature about the history, wildlife and plants in the San Bernardino Mountains.
The feature boat of this year’s show will be Empress, a 1938 Gar Wood 22-foot model 915 Streamliner. Only 9 of these rare beauties were ever built. The Streamliner was intended to revolutionize the runabout market with the practicality of three cockpits forward, with seating for eleven persons in a 22-foot boat. The rear engine and V-drive configuration was very unusual in the 1930s.
The show is produced by the Rim of the World Historical Society with the assistance of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, the Arrowhead Lake Association, the Lake Arrowhead Village, the Up The Hill Woodie Club, Street Rods Forever and the Trompers.
