The occasion was "Cab Forward Month." They were not even interested in looking at the photos, let alone have me drag them down there and put them on display. My great fear is that I would donate them, and then a museum would either park them in a warehouse or sell them. Still, I am thinking of making the offer - maybe to a museum that would give me the time of day?

Really is something out of your control once in the hands of any museum; they can pretty much do with them whatever they want.......

Probably be more productive selling them and donating the money to something you think worthy.

I currently sell ~50% of what I build just to get it out from under foot.

Good point. It is my ego that wants these on display somewhere. I personally think they are pretty good - maybe a museum curator would not think so. Tommy Sefton's Lobaugh Cab Forward is in the Sacramento Museum with not even a little tag mentioning that it is rare, or that it came from a notable collector. But overall, the museum is pretty good - I go whenever I get close to Sacramento.
