Automobile history comes alive in Snook's Dream Cars Automobile Museum, fittingly located adjacent to one of America's first cross-country highways, U.S. 6, in Bowling Green, Ohio. Your journey in the "past lane" begins as you step into an authentically recreated 1940s-era Texaco filling station, featuring an extensive collection of "automobilia" - everything from hood ornaments and window cranks to seat covers, bug remover and backseat touring games. You will continue past an operational, four-bay mechanics' area where vintage vehicles are repaired, and into a working museum of coin-operated amusements, ranging from pinball and slot machines to a Model-T Kiddie Ride (bring along your quarters!). You won't want to miss the antique pedal cars, Texaco promotional gimmicks or the classic collection of automobile decanters, some still holding their original Jim Beam brew. When you've had your fill of these "time machines" wheel into a spectacular showroom of dream cars from the '30s, '40s, '50s and '60s. The Snooks' eclectic collection reflects the elegance of years past. Displayed in authentic settings, these vintage vehicles will take you back to a 1930s general store, a 1940s stroll throught downtown Bowling Green, a 1950s diner, and a 1960s Sebring raceway pitlane. A collection of classic military vehicles completes the living museum, where all the cars are running, reliable and ready to show. Before you leave, be sure to stop in the gift shop, and take a little bit of history home with you. PLEASE CALL FOR WEEKEND AVAILABILITY.

Not a huge fancy building but the real treasures are housed indoors. Awesome experience for out teenage son and adults alike. Be sure to visit if you have the chance. Price was $6 adults to get in and check out the treasures.

Right off of the highway, it is a great stop for car enthusiasts. It looks like an old style gas station, but it is full of history and some wonder cars. The inside has some great backdrops that really set the stage. A must see!!!!

With friends, we stopped at the museum and were impressed with all the collection of cars and many other items we have seen. The owner who transmits his passion was really generous and kind. We really appreciated our visit.

Just can't get enough of looking at stuff. I see something I missed every time I stop in. You can spend time looking at classic and antique cars along with signs, etc.
