Tracy's Collision Center and Community Action partnered with Farm Bureau this year to give away two more cars bring the total to 23. The Recycled Rides program provides reliable transportation to deserving members of the Lincoln community. The program began as a challenge between collision repair centers across the country to rebuild a car for a family in need. Tracy's brings their employees together with parts and paint venders and other local contributors to make it a truly local event.

Taking a Stand Against Distracted Driving
Humor and horror movies educate drivers about distracted driving.
Tracy’s Collision Center sees the effects of distracted driving every day, from fender benders to totaled vehicles. As an active member of the Lincoln community, they decided to do their part to help reduce the number of collisions due to distracted driving. Using humor and elements of horror movies, these PSAs (public service announcements) educate drivers about distracted driving and encourage them to think of others on the road.
Lincoln Children's Museum Exhibit
Tiny Town of Big Imagination
The Lincoln Children's Museum recently completed it's largest renovation project in more than a decade. Now open: Tiny Town of Big Imagination!
This kid-sized community includes 6 updated exhibits and two never-before-seen exhibits at Lincoln Children's Museum including Tracy's Collision Center Mechanic's Garage. These exhibits feature kid-friendly, state-of-the-art technology that takes play and learning to a whole new level! We are a proud sponsor of the Lincoln Children's Museum, a true jewel in our community!
Ranked by Child Magazine as one of the top 25 children's museums in the United States, Lincoln Children's Museum is an immersive environment where children and families combine learning with play. These two elements are fundamental to a positive childhood experience and a successful future.
Countless adventures await you when you spend time at Lincoln Children's Museum! Every visit offers a new opportunity to grow, learn and connect as a family. Three floors and more than 23,000 square feet of hands-on exhibit space make for an incredible place where children of all ages will learn, create and explore.
In the Tracy's Collision Center exhibit the traditional parent-child "out in the garage" bond gets a head start. A conversation that begins with tools, colors and shapes can easily turn into, "Will you help me change this tire, Dad?" Touch-screen technology at the paint application station allows little mechanics to unleash their creative side. They can choose a type of vehicle, select a paint brush and personalize it with their favorite color. And the experience wouldn't be complete without an official Tracy's Collision Center uniform!
A life-long love of learning begins when children are young, and that is why Tracy's Collision Center is a proud sponsor of Lincoln Children's Museum. Your little one will be out of the car seat and behind the wheel before you know it. Make the most of these precious moments and ignite your own childlike wonder. Explore, create and play in an environment that's tailored entirely for the young… and the young at heart!
Children's Car Seat Recycling Program
Tracy's Collision Centers recycle tens of thousands of pounds of plastics, metals and cardboard every year. In doing so, we have identified a recycling need in our community that we can be of help with. You see, many of the materials used to construct child safety seats are very similar to those used today in the construction of vehicles.
Routinely each year, thousands of child safety seats are sent to the landfill because there have been no other alternatives. In an effort to keep child safety seats out of the landfill, Tracy's Collision Centers have started a child safety seat recycling program.
We would like to encourage parents to be aware of the expiration date on seats and their history. Child safety seats that have been used in accidents should be destroyed. More information about child safety seats can be found at SafeKidsNebraska.org.
Tracy's Collision Centers accepts child safety seats that have expired, have been in car accidents and are no longer in use. This service is provided without any expense to the owner. The car seat is disassembled and the materials are sent to be recycled.
You may drop off your out-dated or damage child safety seat at either Tracy's Collision Center during regular business hours.
