A collection of classic cars is going on display to the public for the first time in Kearney, Nebraska, with private owners donating a majority of the vehicles.
Mr and Mrs Taulborg are the primary donors, having collected hundreds of vintage vehicles over the years.
They have given 130 of their cars away in order to stock the new Classic Car Collection, although they still have 28 vehicles which they have retained for themselves, which is impressive by most standards.
The organisers are keen to point out that this is not a museum but simply a collection of iconic vehicles from throughout the history of the US auto industry.
The oldest vehicle on display dates from 1909, while the most recent example was built in 1983, so there is a real diversity to the collection.
Although the collection will not officially open its doors to visitors until the start of 2012, it will be possible to get a look at the cars ahead of schedule if you visit during the busy Christmas shopping period.
A charge of around $8 is proposed for visitors in order to pay for the maintenance of the vehicles and the associated costs of running the venue.
