Overview

This collection of over 200 cars represents one man's 41-year love affair with the automobile. It also represents America's love affair and fascination with automobiles and the evolution of our society around the world of wheels. You'll see a variety of body types and styles. You'll enjoy the incredible detail crafted into many of these vehicles - artistic hood ornaments, instrument gauge panels, wheel styles and headlights. Coordinated together to tell their own stories and help us track the evolution of the model and of the age of automobiles. IPads are provided free of charge to give you additional photographs of the vehicle's details - some not able to be seen by the public as well as more information about the vehicles. This attraction is more than just automobiles. It features artistic displays, interactive multi-media shows and models.

We went to Kearney to watch the sandhill crane migration. As a side trip went went to see the car collection. It is one of the best I have been to. Worth the time to visit.

Our ages ranged from 3 - 67 years old. There were seven of us, four adults and 3 children. All enjoyed the displays. Brought back memories and allowed the children to expand their sights and experiences.

If you are a car buff this is a place you will want to visit. They have all types of older cars. Some muscle cars and race cars but a lot of older vintage cars with stories about them.

Not sure either, as I talked to one of the people who really know a lot about the cars, and this one through him a loop. What else might the Apperson Jackrabbit been called, or what other connection might there be?
