DAY 14 PARTS 1 -2-3-4 - HASTINGS NEBRASKA
I decided to cool the driving a bit and stay in Hastings for 2 days as my base, leaving me a quick 2 1/2 drive on Day 15 to the Chevy Auction. My first stop was Harold Warp's Pioneer Village less than a half hour drive. I actually passed it the day before, but my plan worked to do minimal driving, explore Hastings, and get a tire rotation for $14 at Goodyear! I also figured staying in one place to do the radio call in to Motormouth radio from a nice shade tree covered bench and that worked perfect! Once again this will need another blog and Flickr page, but to sum it up this man created a village that represented americana and industrial advances. There are 325 cars, planes, boats, appliances, farm tractors, trucks, etc............ I will tell the complete story as I catch up remember these are from the road updates. The cars for the most part are all original and might have been 10 years old when inserted here and I mean inserted as many are upstairs and there are no doors!! I am guessing the building was built around them! Too bad the Lambrecht auction cars were not entombed!!
