According to the news-leader.com article, “I have thought about opening my museum for several years. There are upsides and downsides. You don’t make much money off a car museum, and it’s more for personal pleasure.

I figured while I am still young — that is tongue and cheek, I’m 75 — I ought to get it open and enjoy it,” he said.
The car museum will open in Springfield and will include 70 cars in the collection. For more information about the museum, visit http://www.news-leader.com/story/news/local/ozarks/2016/06/11/car-buying-hobby-becomes-route-66-car-musuem/85482872/
