As the owner of Redline Restorations, Colton Amster oversees concours-quality automotive restorations on a variety of classic cars. Under his leadership, Redline Restorations has contributed to multiple philanthropic organizations and community outreach initiatives such as the Bridgeport Police Memorial Car and Bike Show. In fact, Colton Amster created the “Wheels & Shields” subtitle for this annual charitable event.
All proceeds from Wheels & Shields go directly to the Bridgeport Police Memorial and Bridgeport Police Department Activities League. Over the years, the event has featured prewar and postwar vintage automobiles as well as a wide range of muscle cars, race cars, motorcycles, and trucks. It has also hosted guest appearances by various automotive experts including collector car authority Bill Stephens.
The 2016 Wheels & Shields event took place on April 24, 2016, from 10 am to 2 pm in the Bridgeport Police Activities League building. In addition to welcoming cars and bikes of all kinds, this gathering offered food and musical performances.
