NEW OLD CARS COMING TO THE MUSEUM
NEW VINTAGE CARS COMING TO THE MUSEUM
Each year, the museum moves around one-third of the cars that have been on display out and moves other cars in to replace them. Thanks to sponsorship from Frank Manafort, 2020 will be the year of the midget. Among the cars that have already arrived is the first Badger that was built and was recently restored by Rollie Lindblad (pictured). The car was owned by John McCarthy and was driven to NEMA championships by Dave Humphrey. Also new to us is Bobby Seymour’s VW powered midget that was built in the family shop and which Bobby drove to 20 feature wins and the 1987 NEMA championship. The Tulonen midget, still minus a roll bar, returns after having spent a year on display at Bentley Warren’s museum in Maine. Others that are coming include Mike Favulli’s car, the last Badger built.
The museum is open every Saturday through the winter, 10am-4pm.
