The show features customized cars, street rods, 4x4 trucks, sports cars and street machines -- not to mention an array of personalities for those not so captivated by the nifty paint and neat hardware. The "names:"

* Soap-viewers can seek out Patrick Muldoon, who plays Austin Reed on "Days of Our Lives," from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow. He'll appear again from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

* NASCAR race-car driver Rusty Wallace will greet visitors and sign autographs from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

* For the youngsters, Michaelangelo and the Teen-age Mutant Ninja Turtles will appear between 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tomorrow, as well as from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

* And, finally, Austin St. John, who portrayed the original Red Ranger on "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers," will be available from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. tomorrow only.

IT'S POE WEEKEND:

The annual Edgar Allan Poe birthday celebration occurs this weekend at Westminster Hall, Fayette and Greene streets, in University Center a few blocks northwest of the Inner Harbor.

The main event tonight and tomorrow night is "Poe in Person," a two-act drama drawn from Poe's essays, journals and other writings. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the play begins at 8 o'clock each night. Period music will precede tonight's performance; a lecture precedes tomorrow night's performance. Bagpipe and drum tributes to Poe follow each performance. Tomorrow evening's affair will conclude with a bagpipe procession to the Poe grave, where Poe House curator Jeff Jerome will lead a graveside toast to the author.

Separately, but at the same venue, a one-act drama called the "Confessions of The Raven" will be performed at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday. It commemorates the 150th anniversary of one of Poe's best-known works, "The Raven."

Separate admission is charged for the evening and afternoon performances. Information: 396-7932.
