while i personally wish there was more stuff from the 70's there just isn't a lot of room. the new stuff they do get they probably put in storage until they add on. they do have an expansion plan in place just waiting for $$$$$. i'm going back in august for their convention. talking with lynn was worth the trip. i recommend the trip for all race fans.
