Default Need a good Suggestion on what to do

I have approx 20-30 very old car show plaques. These are the small metal plates that use to be passed out when you attended a car show. These belong to my Dad who has passed and I am trying to think of a good way to preserve them and possibly display them at the same time. Some of these are already 50 years old. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks and have a blessed day!!

I would mount them on a board with a picture of the car and your Dad and hang in the garage or a wall in the hallway of your house as a reminder of the good times your Dad had with old cars

you could cover the board with colored burlap and glue the plaques and stuff on it. Put is where you can see it every day and remember your Dad as well

Thems called dash plaques.

Buy a large picture frame and bo what Clem and Al suggested. Only keep it in the house.
You may want a separate nice picture of your Dad to go in it too besides the car.
