Bowling Green, Ohio
Monday, July 18, 2006

I overnighted in Bowling Green, Ohio, and just across the freeway from my hotel was a private car museum, Snook’s Dream Cars.

A private collection and restoration shop operated by the Snook family, it’s one of the better private museums I’ve seen. Ó

Everything from race cars to pedal cars was on display, including a Kaiser-Darrin and companion pedal car, a shrunken 56 Ford, Model Ts and mundane grocery-getters, all in pristine condition.
