Jerry’s Classic Cars & Collectibles Museum

Jerry’s Classic Cars & Collectibles Museum

Jerry’s Classic Cars & Collectibles museum is built out of the love for cars, growing up in the 1960s, playing rock-n-roll music and drag racing. Working in a gas station at that time was the thing to do for any young man who had an interest in cars and making a few dollars. Jerry Enders, the owner of the museum, used those memories as the inspiration behind the design and atmosphere of the museum.

Jerry and his wife Janet transformed the former Morgan Studebaker Dealership (circa 1900) into a museum featuring over 20,000 items and a large variety of classic cars. The museum took years to clean out, fix up, and paint in preparation for its opening in 1994. Their hard work and constant devotion make the museum the attraction it is today.

As Jerry walks through the museum, he expresses his outlook: “The mural of the 1950’s Atlantic Gas Station (on the ground level) is how I remember the one I worked in. The 1950s Band Stand and Drive-In Theater on the upper level will remind anyone of the days of rock-n-roll and outside movies. Along with a variety of classic cars, the snack bar and soda fountain will also take you back in time.”

Since its common for the museum to attract men of all ages, Jerry and Janet made sure there are must-see items for women. Walking through the millinery, library, kitchen, and appliance store brings countless memories back to life. Do you remember the first song you and your first love danced to? Check out the jukebox on the lower level to enjoy a blast from the past. While listening, engage in a few games on the 1960s pinball machine!

The Fawick Flyer at The Old Courthouse Museum

The Fawick Flyer at The Old Courthouse Museum

The Old Courthouse Museum at Siouxland Heritage Museum is not a car museum. The building is actually the first Minnehaha County Courthouse built in 1889. By its completion in 1893, it became the largest courthouse between Chicago and Denver.

The building has three floors you can explore for free and offers all you would expect from a courthouse built in the late 1800s.

However, it’s what you would not expect to see in an old courthouse that makes it worthy of mentioning in the Automotive Museum Guide.

Located on the main floor of the courthouse near the stairs you find a 1908 Fawick Flyer. This car was built by 19-year-old Thomas Fawick. It was Thomas’ first 4-cylinder model capable of transporting 5 passengers with a top speed of 60 mph. Keep in mind the speed limit of the day was 7 mph and 4 mph around corners.

The car was originally called the Silent Sioux but was later renamed the Fawick Flyer.  It was estimated Thomas drove this car over 125,000 miles before it went on exhibit in his museum in Cleveland, Ohio.

In 1955 the car was restored to its current “like new” condition by Thomas Fawick and donated to the Siouxland Heritage Museums in 1987.

If you find yourself in the area visiting the Old Courthouse Museum will be worth if anything, just to see this amazing piece of automotive history.

Larsen Tractor Museum

Larsen Tractor Museum

The Larsen Tractor Museum is a historical facility located on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. The museum was established in 1980 and is dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Nebraska’s tractor test law (dating from 1919) which began as a law to protect others from irresponsible tractor companies failing to keep the best interest of the farmer in mind. Today it remains the only tractor testing museum in the world. It is also still the only complete tractor test laboratory in the world.

The Nebraska tractor testing law had its roots in 1919 when Wilmot Crozier, a farmer, and legislator from Osceola in Polk County, bought a Ford 8-16 tractor. Not made by Henry Ford Co., the Ford 8-16 didn’t live up to its advertised claims. The advertisements claimed it could pull three plows at once. Mr. Crozier could only get it to pull one. He took it back to the dealership and demanded they take it back, but they told him, “You own it, you keep it”.

They did eventually give him a Rumely H tractor The advertisements claimed it could pull three plows at once; Crozier got it to pull five. Wilmot Crozier and State Senator Charles Warner decided to ensure that all farmers would get a fair deal when buying any model of tractor sold in Nebraska. Under their leadership, the Nebraska Tractor Test Law was passed in 1919, House Roll 85.

At the same time, the legislature established a facility for tractor testing on the east campus of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln to ensure those tractor manufacturers met their advertised claims of the tractor’s performance. The Nebraska Tractor Test Laboratory is known around the world as the first test lab in the world. And it is the leader in tractor testing and is still the only one of its kind in the world.

The Lester F. Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum are housed in the original Nebraska Tractor Test facility on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska Lincoln. It is located at 35th and Fair Streets. A newer section was built in 1948. The building was declared a historical landmark by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers in 1980 and dedicated as a museum in 1998.

Friends of the Museum were instrumental in early renovation efforts and continue to raise funds for the museum. The museum is now part of the University of Nebraska State Museum system. The Waterloo Boy tractor was the first to successfully complete the testing process in 1920. Only because of the harsh winter of 1919, they didn’t get the testing finished in time
