2020 WSAH Fall Meeting

Ten members and one guest met at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum in Hartford at 2:00 PM. President Ken Nimocks reviewed the personnel changes in the Iola Car Show management and what direction the show may take in 2021. The buildings used for some of the displays in the past are also undergoing change.

George Tesar has been working on a possible conference and meeting at the Wisconsin Historical Society in Madison, but unfortunately these plans must be delayed.

Members present passed motions to donate $250 to the Iola Car Show and to make the Chapter’s annual donation of $1,000 to the Wisconsin Automotive Museum. Wisconsin Automotive Museum Director Dawn Bondhus Mueller provided an update on the museum building and collection. Much of the overhead lighting has been switched to LED and many physical plant switches have been upgraded. Two Kissels have been donated to the collection in the past year and the Nash Car Club of America has made improvements to their display in the museum.
