Before business picked up this morning, the powerTV crew had the chance to visit Mike Yager’s Mid America Motorworks museum, located just across the parking lot from the main offices. If you’re a Corvette or Chevrolet enthusiast, this is a place you’ll want to check out. From race cars, to former movie cars, classic neon signage, paintings, hundreds of diecast models, classic and late model performance engines, and much of the Mike Yager “MY” collection all resides in this building that reminds one of a 1960’s diner or storefront.
Cruising through the rows and rows of Corvette’s, you just never know what unique name you’ll see on someone’s license plate. And while there are some great ones, BEER RUN simply takes the cake. Belonging to Jim Spese and his wife Kathi, from nearby Mahomet, Ill., this comical plate “took a lot of time and phone calls to get,” Jim explained. “We kept waiting for it to become available, but it’s a lot of fun. We enjoy seeing all the different license plates on the cars here at Funfest.”
