"The 2017 Middle Meet
was held in Des Moines Iowa June 11-14
. Was a wonderful meet and the high point was a visit to the car collection of Dennis Albaugh's cars in Ankeny, Iowa. There are approximately 180 Chevrolet's and consists of at least one year convertible of each year one was produced. The 1957 convertible collection has a convertible in every color available and even more than one in some colors. Also several were fuel injected. Al the other models also had examples of the rare top of the line Super Sport Etc. models. All cars were in prime condition and dustless. The collection is not open to the public so the VCCA members were privileged to view the.
My '57 Nomad is parked in front of the building, the cars housed in the lower level which had an exposed beyond the house area. The grounds also contains a nine hole gulf course.
All that attended we simply amazed by the number of cars and pedal cars, gas pumps, etc.
The Aqua 1958 convertible was restored and owned by the late Gary Halford, a long time respected VCCA member." Gene Schneider
