Iola Car Show update: George Kriewaldt’s salvage yard vehicles are being offered up during the 2023 Iola Car Show

Iola, Wisc. – For decades, a salvage yard locally known simply as “Kriewaldt’s” has been just a stone’s throw from the Iola Car Show swap meet. Now the contents of George Kriewaldt’s salvage yard are being offered during the Iola Car Show, to be held July 6-8.

“Some of the items from the property will be sold and on display in a new section of the Iola Car Show swap meet,” according to the Iola Car Show. “This newly developed area is called ‘The Yard’ and will be showcased as a consignment and display area with a unique and nostalgic design to recreate a salvage yard within the swap meet.”

“The Yard” will be centrally located in rows Y and Z of the Iola Car Show swap meet.

The family of the late George Kriewaldt partnered with the Iola Car Show to clear the property and offer contents of the salvage yard. According to the Iola Car Show, the clean-up project includes 15 acres that contain multiple vehicles and equipment from the 1950s to the 1980s. The project has been separated into several phases that may take several years to complete. The first phase was completed in September 2022 when several vehicles from the salvage yard were sold. Phases two and three are being worked on currently as weather and ground conditions allow.

The Kriewaldt family will be improving the cleared area to expand its private parking area during the car show. Their existing parking lot has been a staple during the show for close parking for many years.
