About this Exploration:

Don C Nichols was born and raised on his parents dairy farm 2 miles south of Iola. His grandfather Archie Cuppy worked at a car dealership in Iola (Arbuckle's Garage) for over 30 years. Let’s just say appreciation for cars is in his blood and buying/restoring them has been a very passionate hobby of his. In early 2009 Don and wife Pam decided to move from their homestead in Odessa, Texas to semi-retire in Maui, Hawaii. This created a bit of a dilemma, as Hawaii would be a long ways from the mainland to ship a collection like this one. It took very little time for Don to choose his hometown of Iola to park and display his collection. This is quite possibly the nicest antique car collection in the entire state of Kansas and Don wants the citizens of Iola to be able to enjoy them. Don has a museum manager overseeing the cars and other priceless antiques, call or text him to reserve your spot on the next tour. Groups large and small are welcome.
