The Orphanage

A great little museum founded by a couple of guys with a love for cars you don't see every day. During my visit there was a special exhibit on automotive hood ornaments coupled with a quilt exhibit. They had a Nissan S-Cargo; yes, there really is such a thing!

The Orphanage

A quirky gallery in rural Northeast Colorado with a permanent collection of odd, orphan cars and automobilia. Local and regional artists are displayed in, on, and around the cars. Unexpected on the Eastern plains.

[Richard Birnie, 07/03/2019]

The gallery was started by Ron Wenger, who runs a local auto repair shop and ran out of room for his classic "orphan cars," which are cars no longer in production.
