NEW ATTRACTION!

Check out this Military Tribute Truck "Fallen Angel" built by Russ from Oshkosh that will be on display at this year's show.

They no longer have a voice, but "Fallen Angel" speaks loudly for them.

1969 Ford Mustang ~ Skittz

For 1969, Ford restyled and enlarged the Mustang. The Mustang had quad headlights for the first time with the outer ones mounted deep into the fenders and the inside ones mounted in the grille area. The side scoop was mounted higher on the rear fenders on the fastback models than the previous years; and on the hardtop and convertible models it was in the same place but it now faced rearward. The Mustang had a high performance theme for 1969 with the release of the Mach 1 model.

Meet Skittz, a charismatic one of a kind customized 1969 Mustang, owned by Randy and Jen of Oshkosh. Skittz was a 5 year restoration project for Randy and dedicated to his wife Jen for all her support putting up with his passion for cars. Randy and Jen have been Mustang enthusiasts for over 30 years and had a vision to turn this classic into a masterpiece. The paint features Mango Tango Orange with Harley-Davidson Cinnamon Apple Clear. This is Randy's 12th Mustang!

The 1969 models came with a standard 351-cid V-8 standard but had the options of a 390-cid or the 428-cid Cobra Jet V-8 engines. Skittz is loaded with a 351 Windsor/Cobra engine. Come out August 15th to meet Randy & Jen and check out this one of a kind convertible Mustang!

Grandpa Chuck's Kettle Corn available at this year's show!

Grandpa Chuck's Kettle Corn available at this year's show!

Grandpa Chuck's Kettle Corn started in May of 2013 with the idea of creating a company that would work mainly with non-profit organizations or charitable events to help raise money for their use. Our first event was Walleye Weekend in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin with the Noon Kiwanis and we grew from there. In 2013, our first year, we were able to donate over $2,000 to different events that we worked with. Grandpa Chuck's continues to grow as we do more events with charities and non-profit organizations. We will always give back to the communities, events and organizations that we work with to help them improve the lives that they touch. This year, in 2014, we will help raise money for no fewer than 10 different non-profit organizations or charities and we hope that number will grow in years to come. Grandpa Chuck's Kettle Corn is proud to be a part of this year's show to support past & present military and their families.
