GERING, Neb. - New artifacts came wheeling into the Legacy of the Plains Museum Thursday.
A series of old fashioned vehicles, including a 1927 Chevy model LM truck, a Ford Model AA stakebed, and a 1928 International Six-Speed Special made their way to the Gering museum. A Ford Model A Sport Coup with a snow bird conversion is also expected to arrive.
The four vehicles, all from the late 1920's, were donated by the Lawrence Grabher estate in Hemingford.
LPM executive director Katie Bradshaw says the vintage vehicles will soon go on display as part of the farming exhibit.
She says the vehicles will tell a tale of how transportation played a role in the lives of old time farmers.
"With farms, you get a lot of stuff that you have to transport. Whether that be cattle or grain or people sometimes, you know bringing a crew into the field. So vehicles were a huge part of the farm and that's part of what we're telling here at the museum."
Bradshaw says the vehicles appear to be in working condition, and could make possible appearances in future parades.
