This weekend I took my family to Historic Auto Attractions in Roscoe, IL.  I could not believe the number of historic firearms they had in their collection.  They had John Dillinger and Pretty Boy Floyd’s 1911.  They also had Walther PP’s owned by Herman Goering, Eva Braun, and Heinrich Himmler.  There were also a lot of firearms from the old west.  The firearm collection was impressive.  The historian was on site and shared a ton of info about the guns and cars they had.  If you live in southern WI it’s definitely worth the trip.

They still have one of Hitler's armored cars?  The whole place was amazing . The TV show sets on a map, race cars, a bat mobile. Lots of cool stuff.   Caddy that was behind JFK when he was shot?

I didn’t see Hitler’s armored car but they had one of Stalin’s.  The glass was 3” thick.  They did have the Caddy that was in the motorcade when JFK was shot.  It’s a very impressive JFK collection.  The firearm collection still blows my mind.  The head historian said they have a close relationship with Rock Island Auction.

Yes, Roscoe is North of Rockford, on the state line.

No, it is NOT North Rockford.
