Set inconspicuously on a wall, partly obscured by a life-sized plastic cow in a pink pinafore dress, rests a guitar signed by Eric Clapton. Not only did the modesty of its presence seem an apt descriptor for the nature of this wonderous collection of memorabilia;...More

This is a nifty little museum run by an interesting man who has a collection of restored cars as well as an extensive collection of memorabilia from the 1930s, 40's, 50's and onward. So many memories of childhood and "the good old days."
