Kearney Classic Car Collection’s new director cared for 60 exotic rides; now he oversees 200

It was an accident, Greg Overton insists.

He sat down at his computer to renew his membership in the Association for CarMuseums when his finger hit the wrong button. Up popped an ad saying that theClassic Car Collection in Kearney, Neb., was looking for an executive director.Then working in isolated Gateway, Colo., just four miles from the Utah border,Overton had no idea where Kearney was, but he perked up. He’d been manager of the exclusive Gateway Automobile Museum for nearly three years, and he and his wife, Suzette, were sensing that it was time to leave.

Interested, Overton sent a brief email to Brad Kernick, chairman of the board of the Classic Car Collection. Meanwhile, he and Suzette began investigatingKearney.

“It was the right-size city. It was a university town surrounded by rural area,” he said. “I also knew there aren’t many auto museums out there, and I wasn’t quitesure where I’d go if I didn’t stay in this line of work,” he said.

Overton, 51, got the job in Kearney, and this morning, he was introduced to the press, the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce and others at a festive meet-and-greet. Introverted and friendly, he is thrilled to be here.

At more than 170 cars, Kearney’s collection is three times larger than the oneOverton managed in Colorado. The museum in Gateway displayed about 60 cars manufactured between 1906-2006 that belong to John Hendricks, founder of theDiscovery Channel. Many are one-of-a-kind, rarely-if-ever-driven models.To read more please visit the original source at
