  1. So there's this abandon car museum in Manitou Springs Colorado located at 135 Manitou Ave and I've been so curious about it ever since I found out about it. I collect postcards and brochures and I have one brochure and a couple of postcards from the place. I got them off eBay by the way and I would like to put the pictures on here and show you but I don't know how to post pictures on this thing so sorry. Anyways all I know about the museum is some of the cars that were in it and the location. By the way if you look this place up it says race car museum on it but I'm not a race car guy but bef
  2. Does anyone know of any junkyards that allow kids under 16 to go into? Especially in Colorado. I'm a 15 year old living in Littleton which is just outside of Denver and I just really want to go barn find hunting like Tom Cotter.

  6. Does anyone know anything about the Horseless Carriage Museum that was by Rapid City SD? I know it was somewhere on Hwy 16 but I don't know the exact location. By the way, I'm not talking about the museum in Murdo, this is something different. I have a brochure and postcard that I got off eBay from this museum so that's how I know about it. I mainly wanna know the exact location of the museum, the owner, what year the museum opened and closed, and some of the cars that were in it and what happened to them when this place closed. Feel free to share any information that you know of. By the way I
