Long Description:
Abilene Reproter News"Patti Wood dedicated the museum to the memory of Danny Lee “Woody” Wood. The couple owned a ranch between Cross Plains and Rising Star and were married for 34 years until Woody’s death in 2016 after an illness, said museum supervisor Mindy Johnson.

“Woody liked cars, and he surprised Patti with a Thunderbird on an anniversary,” recalled Johnson, who is also Patti’s niece. That first car, a '56 pearly-white hardtop T-Bird, is on display at the museum.

“That kind of started it, they got hooked on buying cars and collecting them,” she said. Whenever a car was delivered to the ranch, Woody and his bride naturally took it out for a spin around the property. Over the course of time, the couple amassed quite a collection, and 27 vehicles are on display at the museum.

“(Patti) does have more cars, but some of them are projects,” Johnson said. “They're not really complete yet, but she does plan on getting different things finished and refurbished, switching them out and giving people something new to look at.”

Most of the cars are from what you would consider the “classic” era. Impalas, Corvettes, Cadillacs, with a few modern additions such as the 50th anniversary Ford Mustang from 2014. Depending on your age, you either rode, owned or lusted after several of these in the more formative years of your life."
