1290The Route 66 Car Museum is opening June 15 thanks to a man’s love for collecting cars. Guy Mace is making that happen.

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. With the city of Springfield’s renewed thrust and interest in Route 66, I felt this would be a real boon for promoting Route 66. A car museum is very attractive to tourists. 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/
