Chris is in charge of restoring these rolling mementos of years past to their original glory. So far, the museum's completed work on the 611, the famous 1950's era engine, and a car designed specifically as a travelling movie theater. But there is much more to do.

One bill would require at least two corners of a chad to be separated from its punch-card ballot to count.
But another one would upgrade voting equipment statewide .. getting rid of punch card machines altogether.
