Omaha Children’s Museum Celebrates 40 Years, Collectible Dodge Aspen to be Auctioned Online with Proxibid

OMAHA, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#1970sProxibid,
the most trusted way to connect buyers and sellers of highly valued
items, will provide online bidding for a 1976
Dodge Aspen “Woody” Wagon
to benefit the Omaha Children’s Museum. In
celebration of the museum’s 40th Anniversary the station
wagon currently sitting in front of the museum will be sold to the
highest bidder, with all funds being contributed to the museum. Bidding
will be available January 14—January 28 exclusively on Proxibid.

Before the Omaha Children’s Museum was a brick-and-mortar staple of the
Omaha community, a group volunteers loaded up the back of a station
wagon with art supplies and science activities and offered learning
opportunities under the name of Omaha Children’s Museum. Volunteers
drove the packed station wagon to local malls and area attractions where
families would be looking for free educational activities, which
ultimately led to the creation of the Omaha Children’s Museum as it
exists today. The vehicle for auction is akin to the original – a 1976
Dodge Aspen “Woody” Wagon
with a V8 engine, green exterior and beige

“This 1976 Dodge Aspen is of great significance to the Omaha Children’s
Museum as it is similar to the vehicle in which the museum was founded,”
said Lindy Hoyer, Executive Director of Omaha Children’s Museum. “The
vehicle holds a special place in the history of the museum, and is also
a rare gem that collector car enthusiasts will be excited to know is
available for sale. We are proud to offer the vehicle to interested
bidders around the world through Proxibid’s best-in-class online bidding
