— A Roscoe, Illinois auto museum is well represented at both the Democratic, and Republican National Conventions.

Owner Wayne Lensing displays many historic autos, including several presidential limousines.

This week, President Harry S. Truman's limo is one of the attractions at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, while President Ronald Reagan's limo will be displayed at the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis next week.

Lensing got a little publicity loaning out another historic auto recently. He's the guy who owns John Dillnger's car, which was used in the filming of "Public Enemy Number One" starring Johnny Depp.

You can learn more about the museum by going to its web site historicautoattractions.com
