Snap-on and History Center collaborate on ’60s exhibit

Snap-on Incorporated and the Kenosha History Center have dedicated a special exhibit at the Rambler Legacy Gallery titled “Sixties Mix and More.”

The exhibit features classic 1960s and earlier automobiles alongside Snap-on tools, equipment and tool storage from throughout the company’s 90 year history. Other displays will tell the Snap-on story through rare signage, advertising and product evolution kiosks. A highlight of the exhibit is a fully restored 1950s Snap-on dealer van. “Snap-on is pleased to support the Kenosha History Center and share its 90 year history and vintage tools as part of this special exhibit,” said Jack Michaels, retired chairman, president and CEO of Snap-on. “Snap-on and the automobile have been an important part of Kenosha’s history for decades, and we are proud to help bring them together in this unique exhibit.”

The display opened to the public beginning Dec. 16 and will remain open through Sept. 25, 2011. The History Center is located at 220 51st Place.
