I think Suzie Fredricks Wiester has been married the longest in our class. She got married I believe in December 1969.

Wow kind of a sad day. Many of you from Kearney remember this car that my dad’s business owned and raced in late ,60s & 70’s. They traveled with it and won National Championships. Loren Downing was the driver and my brother Mike and classmates and other friends and family were the pit crew. Dad sold the car many years ago but it has since been at the Classic Car Museum in Kearney. Well, it’s been on auction and the final bid was taken at 10:00 this morning. Hoping whoever bought it keeps it at the museum. Monica Ryan Munter and the boys have been over there and gotten their photos taken sitting in the car but Laura Elizabeth and E haven’t made it over. I’d really like to have them be able to see and get photo too. Such great memoriesโฃ๏ธ

I remember Pete's Patriot well. We always enjoyed going to the museum and seeing it. Lots of memories for many people. Glad it's staying in town.  I need to read the Hub article on it.  I was sorry to see so many of the old cars we'e being auctioned off.  Thanks for sharing Deb.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the museum at Kearney is closing. That's why they were auctioning the cars off.

Deb Peterson (Ryan)

I could be wrong JoAnn but I think maybe downsizing?  When I talked to a couple board members they indicated they wanted the car to stay at the museum. I guess time will tell. Hub article says it's staying in Kearney.

Deb, I could be wrong too. I heard from several people living at Kearney that they were closing the museum.

There are a couple of car museums in Lincoln. One isn't open to the public but we were able to tour one day. The other is Speedway. Of the two, I'm partial to Speedway's museum as it not only contains cars but also things we grew up with.

I saw Jackie Purdy at the Kearney 150 Birthday Celebrations today and she said to tell everyone that the Classic Car Collection is not closing. The cars that sold had been part of  the original collection when the current owner bought the museum but there are still a lot of cars there so come  see them.  Jackie spends a lot of hours volunteering there.

Joann I talked to a reliable source that said it was a nasty rumor and the museum was not closing.

Joann Stengel (Tumbleson)

It's a beautiful day in Loveland!  Need to get a few more flowers to fill some spots...the garden store and bakery are two favorite spots for this girl.  I got to visit with Marti a few days ago.  

Happy 4th to each.

Joann Stengel (Tumbleson)

Danny, some days my memory are better than others. I've resorted to putting things I need to remember on my phone so it gives me reminders!

Have fun in Sturgis and remember to take bail money!

This post is mostly for Dave "Lefty" Carpenter. I was at my brother Doug's house the other day and he showed me a little league baseball scrapbook that our mom had put together for my twin brothers Doug & Dave.I never knew that she had made them one too. I guess I wasn't as special as I thought. Lefty Carpenter is about a year younger than most of us and he was only 12 at the time. I didn't realize what a great ball player Lefty was then playing for the Kiwanis. He was 7th in the league in hitting with a .405 batting average,was 2nd in the league in innings pitched,was 1st in strikeouts as a pitcher with 64 and was 1st in earned run average in the league with 2.95 runs per game as a pitcher.

Doug has had a glass counter in his living room for years filled with pictures. I asked him where he got it. It is the old glass candy counter from Reddy's grocery store. He told me he had bought it from Mr. Reddy. It still has the sliding glass doors.

How exciting for Terry Garrelts! He can now LEGALLY pump his own gas into his car! Do you remember how to do that Terry? If not, come to Nebraska as we'll give you lessons! ๐Ÿ˜
