I heard via the Hemmings Blog that Alberta collector and museum founder Stan Reynolds had died. What a shame as he’d been one of the driving forces and the initial donor for the Reynolds Museum up in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. Stan had literally thousands of collector cars as well as airplanes and farm equipment. He started out with a used car dealership and a 1911 Overland as his first collector car. He was a passionate collector of artifacts to help preserve the past. Check out his biography.
The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is a fantastic place. There is an emphasis on cars with a Canadian connection but still a massive variety of stuff. There are tons of tractors, farming equipment and airplanes as well. They even have a vintage car roaming the grounds that you get to ride in.
They have a once year event called history road were a couple hundred cars from all eras are driving around the museum grounds. I have some pictures from last year’s event here.
Next to the museum there is also the Reynolds automotive parts business. I believe this is still owned by the family. Acres of old cars and equipment. I have some pictures here (and of the museum mixed in too) – photos
