COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) — What better place to tell the story of the humble American pickup truck than The Farmer's Museum?

A new exhibit, "The Pickup Truck: America's Driving Force," opens Saturday at the museum in Cooperstown, home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

The exhibit tells the story of the pickup's rise from its introduction in the early 20th century as a delivery vehicle to today's best-selling vehicle in the United States.

Vintage vehicles on display include a 1907 Chase Model D "Open Express" Motor Truck made in Syracuse. Only 30 to 40 are known to have survived. Other old trucks on exhibit are two Ford Model TTs from the 1920s and a 1955 Chevrolet 3100.

The exhibit runs through Oct. 31.
