Mr. Cooley is proud of his car collection knowing the Smithsonian deems it the best old car display in the USA. You might know Mr. Cooley as Frank the Train man and his train and car collection are under one roof at the J.A. Cooley Museum on Park Blvd. He was raised on Mississippi St and went to Hoover High with Ted Williams and a treasure chest about San Diego history. When we visited the museum he gave us the story about each car and it was fascinating, as well as seeing many, many antique items. Can’t beat the admission price of $5. And he still drives his Model A in parades!
