WEST ALLIS -- The 54th annual "O'Reilly Auto Parts World of Wheels" event took place this weekend -- from Friday, February 19th through Sunday, February 21st at the State Fair Park Expo Center in West Allis.

America’s love affair with the automobile is legendary. In fact, for over 57 years, custom car shows have paid tribute to the innovative workmanship that continuously re-invents and improves the vehicles of yesterday and today.

Championship Auto Shows (CASI), the undisputed leader in indoor custom car show production, produces the largest show series in the business: better known under the monikers of "Autorama" or "World of Wheels."

Close to 20 events are held annually across the United States and Canada.

Hot rods are always at the heart of each show, but in recent years the composition has expanded to include manufacturers displays.

As a result, today’s shows appeal equally to those who own competition cars, specialty and concept vehicles and those who dream about owning them.

FOX6's Julie Collins was LIVE at the State Fair Park Expo Center on Sunday morning, February 21st -- the final day of the "World of Wheels" show. The show runs until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
