Wheels O' Time Museum

Last summer (1997), I visited a museum called "Wheels Of Time" just north of Peoria. It has many, many old cars, as well as great collections of clocks, animated coin-operated bands (and a whole circus, if memory serves). It also has more antique jukeboxes than I've ever seen.
