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.
