Decades of Wheels car museum planned for Route 66 at Kansas
POSTED 12 Jul 2018 . BY Alice Davis
Located beside the famous Route 66 in Kansas, Texas, a new car museum will showcase some of the US’s most loved cars and motorbikes.

Decades of Wheels has more than 300 motor exhibits, including Model Ts, Hellcat Chargers, Corvettes and a 1971 Husqvarna owned by Steve McQueen. Vehicles from the privately owned collection will be shown on a rotating basis, with 30 on display at a time, so returning visitors will always have a different experience.

Cars from the movies are also part of the museum’s collection, such as Herbie from The Love Bug, the Black Beauty from Green Hornet, DRAG-U-LA from The Munsters, the DeLorean from the Back to the Future franchise and an array of Batman’s Batmobiles.

Decades of Wheels has announced it will open on 12 October and will host a music festival over that weekend, with Grand Funk Railroad, Reckless Kelly, Granger Smith, John Kay and Steppenwolf on the bill.
