Get out on the highway
Few things reflect a culture more than its transportation, and that is as true of life on the Panhandle Plains as anything else. From a big-wheeled bike from the late 19th century to the automobiles of the 1960s, this exhibit is always a favorite. Highlights include one of the oldest Ford automobiles in existence: a 1903 Ford Model A Runabout (#28 of only 1708 produced) and the oldest assembly line vehicle in the world.
Don’t miss our luxurious 1933 Pierce Arrow limousine (complete with a window separating drivers from passengers), our 1910 Zimmerman Touring Car (one of the rarest U.S.-made vehicles in history) and our 1930 Cadillac V-16 sedan (which turned heads with a cruising speed of 70 mph). Peppered by other transportation-related artifacts—from Burma Shave signage to high-wheeled bicycles—this exhibit helps rediscover the excitement and adventure of the open road.
