    Well if you come through Abilene with a car trailer and some money, you sure could get a car here. My dad is scrapping a bunch of his cars. Even if you don't want anything and want to just look around that's fine. What are you going to be driving in?
     
  14. Is Jim Halls Chaparral museum / Rattlesnake raceway still open ? Always wanted to go there.
     
  15. I go see the Jim Hall collection every time I'm in Midland, its awesome!

    Thanks guys for the insight.

    I was in Midland last week. Go to the oil and gas museum. That is where the Jim Hall collection is located and it indeed is worth the time and trouble. Jim Hall-what a cat he was and a Texan to boot! The museum is located right off of I-20.

  20. Is rattlesnake and the museum on the same property ? Sorry, just looked it up, 5 miles away.
