Don C Nichols was born and raised on his parents dairy farm 2 miles south of Iola. His grandfather Archie Cuppy worked at a car dealership in Iola(Arbuckles Garage) for over 30 years. Let’s just say appreciation for cars is in his blood and buying/restoring them has been a very passionate hobby of his. In early 2009 Don and wife Pam decided to move from their homestead in Odessa, Texas to semi-retire in Maui, Hawaii. This created a bit of a dilemma, as Hawaii would be a long ways from the mainland to ship a collection like this one. It took very little time for Don to choose his hometown of Iola to park and display his collection. This may be the nicest private antique car collection in the entire state of Kansas and Don wants the citizens of Iola to be able to enjoy them. Don has opened up the car museum to add to the Farm City Days festivities this weekend.
Stop by Saturday between 9am – 4pm to see this rare collection first hand.
