GALENA, KS.--- Ed Kein is from Chicago and has been a fan of Route 66 for years. He recently purchased the old Bradshaw Garage, across the street from the Cars on the Route. The garage was originally built in 1896. Klein wants to turn it into a Ford Model A museum. He says it will make a great tourist stop for people from around the world.  

"Being a Chicago boy, the Route started a few miles south of me. A lot of people are used to taking the interstate, and once you start getting on the Route, you see all these little towns you never would of known you would of bypassed. I love the history of it. I love driving on it, I love the people on it. The people are the best thing about the route," said Ed Klein, Route 66 fan.

Klein purchased the building this past Saturday. He says this is a 10 to 15 year project that he can't wait to start.
