To celebrate the upcoming 10th anniversary of Historic Auto Attractions, owner Wayne Lensing has announced that he's running out of room and will spend close to $1 million to triple its size by 2012.

Wayne just can't stop buying things. He reportedly just purchased a 60-seat silent movie theater with a 1200-pipe organ and intends to fit it in, somehow.
