Just wanted to let everyone to know that the Classic Car Collection is now open in Kearney, Nebraska. This collection is located in part of Cabela's at 3600 E. Highway 30. There are several Model Ts in this 132 car collection. Kearney is the meeting place for the 2013 Lincoln Highway tour and Centennial Celebration on June 30-July 5, 2013. For more information contact: Kearney Visitors Bureau firstname.lastname@example.org or Great Platte River Road Archway email@example.com

Wonder if I can get off work to be a part of this. Maybe Speedy Bill in Lincoln Nebraska can arrange to have the Speedster Reunion the same week. Would love to participate.
Apparently there is also going to be a Route 66 tour in 2016. The 90th anniversity of Route 66.
There appears to be two Lincoln Highway tours.
One starts in New York on 7/1/2013, and arrives in San Francisco on 7/26.
The other starts June 22, 2013 in New York and San Francisco. One heads east and one heads west so they meet in Kearney, NE on June 30th.
There will be a four day Lincoln Highway Celebration in Kearney starting on June 29, 2013. The first day, the tour cars will be lined down Central Ave, starting with the oldest cars and each block will be 10 years newer.
We expect a group of Model T's at the Arch. The new exit from I-80 at the Arch, should be open by 2013. Some of the Model T group will be giving rides. There will be a shuttle from the Arch to downtown.
The turn-out for the New Classic Car Collection has been good. Tried to send pictures, but too big.
Kermit, you can use this. It's easy.
If you`re going to Kearney, don`t miss Pioneer Village in nearby Minden,NE. Besides 300 plus other cars on display, they`ve got a 1903 Model A Ford with a 1903 Cadillac next to it, also a Ford Model K and a Model NRS. Probably one of the best early covered wagon displays, lots of early ag stuff etc. etc. etc. 22 display buildings on site... I try to get there once a year and always find "new" stuff.....Paul
