Dennis Albaugh's car museum

We were honored to get a private tour of Dennis Albaugh's car collection housed in Ankeny, Iowa.

Honestly, there is no way to describe or adequately photograph it or express the emotions and memories that it invokes.

Dennis has at least ONE Chevrolet for all the years from 1916 through today.

And then there is all the just plain FUN stuff he has collected.... signs, gas pumps, memorabilia.... no stone has been left unturned....

His favorite bumper car from Riverview Amusement Park in Des Moines, Iowa

From the factory, a standard aluminum folding lawn chair was intended to be used as the driver's seat.   
Unsafe maybe, but certainly versatile for a camper.

I took a million photos....  but some of the elements of the vehicles just struck me as beautiful...

And last but not least....  a couple of classics!  Of course, I am referring to the '57 Chevy Convert and the bumper cars behind and above it :).
