A great way to spend some time going back to my younger years. You don't have to be a car buff to appreciate the beautiful cars on display, because there are so many others things to look at. The old TV's, toys, signs,bikes etc, etc, etc. The owners were very nice and willing to talk to you about it all.

Amazing collection of both cars and accessories from early 50th and 60th. One man and his wife have been collecting items for 46 years. We felt welcome and were able to walk around there for hours! We kept on finding new stuff every time we walked through the building. We'll be back!

Visited this museum just after lunch. Spent th better part of 2 hours. A few really unique cars;63 spilt window Corvette, fuel injected, 65 AC cobtain roadster, a high top Cadilac ambulance, and a De Soto airflow coupe! But the stars are the signs, and advertising. Loved the ESSO sign, the TWA pilot/flight attendant clothing, and the school zone police... More

Gosh 'russell117' , we can't thank you enough for your kind rating. The Museum is all about Happy Memories and a Celebration of ''what used to be'' in America and, for the most part, overseas as well. Thanks for sharing on TripAdvisor. More

I've been to the museum a couple of times and still find it fascinating. OK, it's not that big, and doesn't have that many cars, but each tells a story, and the other artefacts are fascinating, each trip around you find things you hadn't seen before. Well worth a visit even if you're not into cars.

Our car club went to Mt. Dora specifically for lunch and a visit to this museum. If you are truly interested in classic and muscle cars, you can spend a long time looking at the "tons" of memorabilia and numerous cars. An original Cobra, Paxton-super-charged '66 Mustang GT350 and a '61 Chevy convertible are among the rarities. The more you... More

This place is great if you are a 20th century history and memorabilia nerd as I am. Liking vintage cars is a definite bonus. The place isn't big, but there is so much crammed into every square foot seeing it all can take the afternoon. When my wife and I got there I thought we would be in and out... More

Thanks "Thomas O" for your great review! We decided sometime ago that today almost anybody can have a display of classic cars. In fact, some of our friends and clients have 120-130 cars each, in personal collections. We are just Small Potatoes:) But, what you did see is an extensive collection of Antiques, Petrolina and Automobilia that we collected over... More

An excellent collection of cars! Speed, class, family and utility vehicles. Ambulances, hearses and woodies! The memorabilia surrounding the cars are tremendous. The entire building is a history lesson. The cars are rare and in absolutely exquisite condition. Both domestic and international cars. This museum is wonderful for father/sons and for husband/wives.
