Branson Auto Museum damaged by devastating Midwestern tornado
So what does any of this have to do with cars? Well, one of the places that experienced severe property damage was the nearby tourist town of Branson, Mo. I like Branson, and even though it is sort of a retiree destination, I actually think it makes a special place to take a family on a budget. And for such a small community, Branson actually has a lot of places and events that appeal to car lovers.
In addition, Branson hosts a huge collector car auction in the fall, they have a toy museum full of car collectables, and they hold local car cruises and shows on a regular basis.

We're thinking about everyone who suffered damage and loss during this week's devastating storms. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come when severe weather season is actually expected to be here.
The photo album below is from my visit to the Branson Auto Museum last summer. With any luck, they'll be back in business soon, so you can go check it out yourself.
