On January 16, 1967, the Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme wouldn’t have made it through the streets of Hammond, Indiana—or anywhere in the Chicago area. That was the day 20 inches of snow pummeled Chicagoland. The ’67 Cutlass is one of more than a dozen antique and classic cars in the Cruisin’ Through the Times exhibit at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond, Indiana. This classic car exhibit, which runs through April 28, 2020, pairs each car with a newspaper headline from The Times of Northwest Indiana. The headline year coincides with the year the vehicle was manufactured.
Every time I visit Hendricks County, Indiana, I discover more interesting people and fascinating places. On our trip this this past spring, I discovered glass artist Lisa Pelo and her gorgeous art works. My husband and I visited Lisa’s Hot Blown Glass studio, watched her create an art piece and chatted with her about her glass art business.
