Ron's Antique Radio Museum and '50s Place Service Station

Ron has been restoring antique radios for decades, and they're on display at a small museum next to his home. He also has 1950s service station memorabilia outside the museum. Donna was our tour guide, and we met Ron in his garage workshop.
