Sketchbook: Crawford Auto Restoration

In this edition of “Sketchbook,” we talk to people who can keep the wheels of any car turning: antique car enthusiasts.

Volunteers at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum are of all ages and backgrounds. Some are using it as an internship for college credit while others are retired! But they all share a love for automobiles.

This restoration started with Frederick C. Crawford in 1943 after he began collecting vehicles that were going to be junked. Today, the museum has almost 200 automobiles and 30 vehicles that are over 100 years old.

Alexandra Samame is an intern with the education team at Ideastream Public Media.
