As I write this, a very large Caterpillar track hoe is working away, some thirty feet above my head. It's not directly above my head; it's actually just behind the Museum's administration office, pulling fill from the hillside behind us to use as additional surcharge for the visitors' center site. While the sound of it hitting rock can be a little unsettling, any minor apprehension is more than offset by the fact this excavation will move the project of extending the streetcar line from the tunnel to the back of the Earl C. Lindburg Automobile Center forward.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the Oldsmobile Fun Show this Sunday, September 27th. As with all car shows at the Museum, admission to the show itself is free! Regular Museum admission applies to the remainder of the Museum grounds.
