Just some of my favorites, I only had my cheapo camera with me. I've been to the truck stop before, but first time I caught the museum.

Looks an interesting museum. Would you need a full day to see all the truck stop.         Bob.

Very nice photos, even for the cheapo camera. ;)  Would like to get down there one day myself, as I've never been to the museum, let alone Iowa!

Once upon a time they were all brand new and some lucky driver ran down the road in them .

Thank you for bringing the museum to us as many of us will never have the opportunity to
ever go there ourselves.

That museum is absolutely awesome, I was able to go through it when I was there for the Jamboree this past summer. Great pics, and I need to go back. ;) I'll post my pics from the museum shortly, not sure why I haven't already, but... they will be on my vacation board.

Thanks folks!

Fugitive, I would say a couple hours for the museum, couple hours for the chrome shop, an hour for lunch, and an hour for the parking lot, haha.

Awesome! So that explains what happened to Hank Good's K100, I had not seen any photos since he got the W900L. Also, the Bullnose KW is really sharp 8)
