Kansas City holds an astonishing amount of auto history from the first African-American auto dealer in the U.S. to the park and boulevard system started in the 1890s that shaped our city's traffic flow today.

Up until a few months ago, Kansas City was the largest metropolitan area in the country without a public auto museum. On Wednesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske cruises through the newly opened Kansas City Automotive Museum and how it is driving traffic to its home in Olathe, Kansas. 

Guests:

  • Kyle Yarber is the Historical Director and Curator at the KC Auto Museum.
