A James Bond museum near Chicago?

Dateline Momence, Illinois, as chronicled by http://www.mytimesweb.com:

A former Momence auto dealership is being eyed by the Ian Fleming Foundation as a potential location for a James Bond museum that would display many vehicles used in the fictional British secret agent movies.

Doug Redenius, a Momence post office employee and the vice president of the Ian Fleming Foundation, addressed Momence aldermen about using the former Case Motor Sales dealership near the intersection of Illinois Route 1 and Illinois 114 on the city”s south side to display the vehicles valued at $5 million.

Momence is about a 90-minute drive (depending on traffic) south of Chicago (part of 2002’s Road to Perdition was filmed there). The town is already home to many 007 vehicles. There seem to be a lot of issues to be resolved (like who would run such a museum) and no timetable set for anything.
